Laser Drilling Applications

LASERDYNE® products have been used for trepan and percussion drilling since the mid-1980s. From the first applications until now, we have continued to expand the capability of laser drilling. Today, we have a deeper understanding of the laser-material interaction that occurs within the process. We have also added many software and hardware features to make the LASERDYNE machines more capable and productive.

This section contains links to articles from our Applications Engineering group to help you evaluate and apply laser drilling for metals.
