Suron owns a line of revolutionary micro-laser machinery for metal cutting. The use of laser cutting technology enables the company to maximize its work with clients, producing precision metal parts that are far superior to etching. Suron’s laser machines pump a laser beam through a water jet, significantly reducing the severity of the thermal influence on the HAZ (heat-affected zone) of the cut area.
Laser cutting technology allows the company to produce a variety of flat, miniature and precise parts, with complicated geometries. The method is suitable for processing all metals, coated metals, and certain non-metals such as: silicon, ceramics, and alumina.
Common Applications of Laser Cutting and Welding Technology:
• SMT stencils
• Manufacturing parts for the security industry
• Manufacturing components and assemblies for the medical industry using metals approved for medical implants
• Manufacturing parts for models and prototypes
• Manufacturing parts in 3D from tubular material
• Manufacturing parts from plated metals and non-metals such as: silicon, alumina and ceramics
Benefits of Employing Micro-Laser Technology:
• A straight cutting line
• A fast processing method with ultra-high precision (5 microns tolerance)
• Suitable for working with miniature parts
• Ability to cut 3D shapes
• Particularly suitable for rapid turnaround of small batches, especially for defense and medical startups that need to produce samples
• The preferred method for manufacturing high precision solder paste stencils for electronic circuits.
• Ideal processing method to meet the stringent requirements for producing medical implants, as well as applications for heart and artery diseases (since the welding process does not distort the metal’s properties, and prevents future problems in which the body might reject the implants)
Disadvantages of Using Micro-Laser Technology:
• Cannot be used to create blind holes and slots.
• Uneconomical for high-volume production.
Materials that Can Be Processed with Laser Cutting Technology:
All existing metals, coated metals, and non-metals such as: silicon, alumina, and ceramics.
