Laser Micromachining

Since 1982, Potomac Photonics has been setting the standard for Laser Micromachining Services.

Laser Micromachining Services:


Laser Micromachining of Stainless Steel Tube

Potomac Photonics offers a broad range of cost-effective and highly repeatable laser micromachining capabilities that are available for applications ranging from prototyping through production manufacturing. With a variety of laser sources from deep UV excimer to Nd:YAG lasers, we can micromachine most materials (eg. polymers, metals, ceramic, glass).  Our Engineers will choose the most appropriate laser system to micromachine your parts, based on feature sizes, tolerances, volume, and material.

We are continually developing new laser micromachining capabilities and have been recognized by many of our customersfor developing processes to manufacture their parts where others have fallen short.  Our laser micromachining systems are equipped with some of the most cutting edge optics configurations, motion systems and parts handling fixtures in the world.  We take pride in pushing the limits of laser micromachining technology from a process, quality and cost perspective.

Laser Micromachining Polymers:



Laser Micromachining of custom Nitinol washers

Laser Micromachining Metals:

Laser Micromachining of Stainless Steel, Copper, Nitinol, Tantalum, Gold, Aluminum and other metal materials.

Our laser micromachining systems are driven by CAD to FAB technology and do not require costly masks or tooling options.  All that is needed to get started is a drawing to get started.

In addition to Laser Micromachining, Potomac has MicroCNC and 3D Printing capabilities.

Laser micromachining can be a very cost-effective way to manufacture custom parts in both prototype and production volumes.  Call us today to discuss your next project.  Lead times can be as fast as 24 hours in some cases.
