Polymer Laser Processing

Industry Leading Prototype Solutions

The Resonetics Lightspeed Lab is a group of engineers and technicians deploying dedicated, state-of-the-art equipment to provide quick-turn prototyping solutions for the medical device and advanced diagnostic markets. Each Lightspeed Lab has technology expertise and develops manufacturing processes that can easily scale to high-volume production, which enables our customers to develop and launch products in record time.

Experts in Polymer Laser Processing

At Resonetics, we use state-of-the-art laser systems equipped with excimer lasers and ultra-short pulse lasers that provide exceptional control over beam intensity, duration, and heat output. This ensures the highest quality of work with minimal thermal damage to the materials.

    Our specialties include but not limited to:

  • Ablation depth control for blank (not through) vias or other features
  • Selective material removal (remove top layers of material without damage underneath materials)
  • 3D feature processing
  • Multilumen processing with dynamic OD control
  • Reel-to-reel wire coating stripping
  • Profile control micro-via array drilling

Advantages of Polymer Laser Processing

  • Precision and Accuracy: Laser ablation allows for extremely precise cuts with clean edges, reducing the need for post-processing.
  • Versatility: This technique can be used on a variety of polymers, including sensitive and flexible materials.
  • Non-contact Process: Since the laser does not physically touch the material, there is no mechanical wear and tear, resulting in better product longevity.
  • Customization: Laser parameters can be easily adjusted to meet specific requirements, allowing for high customization of the ablation process.

Working with the Lightspeed Lab

The primary goal of our Lightspeed Lab is to accelerate our customer’s product development cycle. This acceleration is accomplished via:

  • Direct engineer-to-engineer engagement
  • Sense of urgency
  • Commitment to quality

We can solve the most difficult problems because we are committed to innovation and invest in R&D to develop next-generation manufacturing processes and equipment.
