By irradiating a solid material with a laser beam you can remove material selectively. This process is called Laser Ablation.
Resonetics has different solutions to ablate metal, glass and polymers.

Examples of ablation:

  • Stripping of wire & braided cable
  • Surface texturing
  • Taper and Channel machining
  • Removal of coatings
  • 3D ablation


Resonetics’ ablation capabilities include:

  • Creating features as small as to 1-5 micron
  • Processing many different materials – polymers, dielectrics, metals, ceramics, and glasses
  • Processing different material configurations: flat sheets, wire, tubing and catheters:
    • Flat sheet size can be max. 30,5 x 30,5 cm, thickness of 0.10 – 1.00 mm.
    • Wire, tubing and catheters (including multi lumen): minimum diameter 0.05 mm, length 0.10 – 200 cm.
