Polyimide (or PI or Kapton) is a thin film widely used in the medical and microelectronics industries due to its mechanical strength, electrical insulation, thermal stability, chemical inertness, and biocompatibility. Ultrafast lasers provide the needed precise, non-contact micromachining processing technique with a minimal need for post-processing.
Results from our application lab indicate that our Onefive ORIGAMI XP femtosecond laser can be used to achieve a debris-free no-HAZ machining of polyimide film. The higher peak power of femtosecond laser pulses helps to vaporize polyimide film instantly, leaving a debris-free surface.
We have designed our ORIGAMI XP for easy and cost-effective integration. It comes in an air-cooled, single-box chassis with removable handles and offers full remote-control capabilities. With a rugged design and low maintenance costs, it is ideal for many industrial applications.
