A thousand holes per second, with micron-scale precision in both depth and breadth – only ultrashort pulse lasers can meet the latest requirements for drilling PCB contacts.
Researchers from TRUMPF, Bosch and the University of Jena won the Federal President's German Future Prize 2013. The team cleard the way into mass manufacturing for ultrashort pulse lasers.
Microchips are getting ever faster and smaller, driving mechanical fabrication methods to the edge. Now the laser is taking over.
High-tech materials such as glass, sapphire, ceramics and high-performance plastics are on the rise and light is almost the only way to work them.
Up to date electronic manufacturing without laser? Unthinkable! Many products would be quite simply impossible.
