When customers bring complex projects to Resonetics that include three dimensional metal with micro scale parts, complex geometry, challenging small features and materials not compatible with most other machining – we say yes.

 

Resonetics is commanding the field by investing in leading edge systems using all laser types and wavelengths and by developing unique processing techniques like MICRABLATE™ 3D Laser Machining and ASSURE Endpoint™ Detection.

Resonetics has perfected processes every step of the way including specialized 3D methods that minimize heat input or thermal damage, single-setup fabrication that minimizes handling and cost and in-process inspection for critical features, all giving the utmost flexibility to accurately deliver unique micro scale fabrication techniques for break-through applications.

Together we have resolved some of your most challenging concepts.
