Laser MicroJet technology and its industrial applications

The Laser MicroJet® (LMJ) technology is based on the coupling of laser light into a laminar flow water jet, typically in the order of 25 to 100 microns in diameter. During cutting or drilling applications, the laser is used to ablate and melt the workpiece whilst the water jet serves the purposes of guiding, cleaning and cooling. This unique combination results in parallel kerf walls, reduced heat affected zone and absence of heat accumulation.

Thanks to its versatile technology, the Laser MicroJet is capable of machining a wide range of materials, also of non-conductive nature; from metals to advanced materials such as composites or ceramics as well as super-hard materials such as industrial diamond.

This presentation will introduce you to the working principle and potential of the wet laser technology and show new and proven applications in aerospace, toolmaking and metalworking industries.
