Creating thousands of perforations in close proximity is a challenge for manufacturers in the semiconductor, automotive and aerospace industries, to name a few. Some applications require as many as 50,000 micro holes on a single 1 inch by 1 inch workpiece. Traditional solutions for these applications can take days to run a single part, making tool wear and tool breakage critically important.
Microlution has developed a high speed, high precision solution that can create thousands of precision perforations as close as 2 microns apart, with unrivaled speed and hole consistency. Key to this solution is Microlution’s high acceleration motion platform that moves the part at exceptionally high speeds while maintaining near absolute precision.
In addition to providing speed and accuracy, the Microlution solution’s ability to machine holes of different shapes and depths such as square, round, and tapered plays a role in making new designs possible. The ability to rapidly move parts on many axes, and the flexibility to apply different tools (mill, drill, laser, etc.) opens up multiple design options. This is especially true when machining non-conductive materials where traditional electronic discharge machines (EDM) cannot be used.
