Laser Etching Partnership

PhotoMachining, Inc. and LightFab GmbH have announced a collaborative effort to promote Selective Laser Etching (SLE) using femtosecond lasers in the U.S. market. "The USP laser market is maturing and moving fast," said PhotoMachining CEO Dr. Ronald Schaeffer. "Because of the unique nature of very short pulse light, it is possible to do things such as SLE which cannot be done with longer pulse lengths." LightFab Managing Partner Jürgen Ortmann said, "3-D precision glass parts can be used in many markets and we see especially large potentials in the U.S. market e.g. in electronics and medical. Together with PhotoMachining we hope to find new customers for our prize winning LightFab 3-D Printer and to enable the exploitation of the benefits of the SLE technology also for those customers searching for a domestic source of 3-D precision glass parts."

The SLE process involves exposing hard brittle and otherwise transparent materials like Quartz and Fused Silica to USP laser light and then chemically etching the exposed area away, where etching selectivity after laser exposure is enhanced over a thousand times. This method can be used to make 3-D precision parts by 3-D printing of the pattern inside the bulk of the material.
