Ultra-precision Laser Machining

* For confidentiality reasons we cannot show end products.

Orion Laser Tech increases the quality of your end product dramatically. With industrial laser cutting and ablation technology boasting a micron-precision laser beam, we deliver high quality end products that can be clearly distinguished from mechanical machining. There are no shape or form restrictions either. By enabling flexible positioning of the laser head, we ensure complete design freedom in both 2D and 3D. Furthermore, your machining station is virtually maintenance-free as laser machining is a ‘dry process’. No water use, no dust and no flakes, lowering maintenance and operation costs.
We take great pride in our ultra-precision positioning technology (up to nanometres), made possible by inhouse developed and produced motion systems. Our own produced and developed bearings enable a high level of customisation for our clients. We provide tailor made stations, increasing your work surface and allowing for nesting. This enables you to reduce residual waste to a minimum and to eliminate several intermediate steps in your production process.

Wide Range of Processes

Orion Laser Tech production lines are equipped with a wide range of laser machining processes. We focus primarily on advanced material processing on an industrial level. All types of lasers are possible. Moreover, with our own laboratory we can offer support in testing and validating the desired production process for our clients.

Our laser technology offers distinct advantages over mechanical machining and other classic laser machining systems. By using ultra-short laser pulses we are able to realize high quality end products on an industrial scale.

Cutting

Consecutive ultra-short laser pulses are fired in a specific pattern. With this process, a precise cutting edge with unprecedented edge quality is produced. All designs and shapes are possible. Think of dashboard consoles, windows and mirrors, medical devices, laboratory tubes, microfluid channels, …

Drilling

Laser pulses can completely remove the material locally. This can be used to drill glass with extremely low wall taper and little to no micro cracks. Beyond drilling of holes, any cut-out shape is also possible.

Engraving

Local drilling technique where the penetration depth is adjustable on µm level. Orion’s ultra-precision positioning technology enables a constant depth throughout the process.

Surface treatments

Small and large scale surface modifications or manufacturing of complete surfaces. This is especially interesting for semiconductor applications, print- and medical industries.

Edge chamfering

Laser machining generally eliminates chamfering because the end product already has smooth cutting edges. However, for cosmetic reasons or safety applications additional chamfering can be provided. Consider windows, mirrors or glass surfaces in the automotive industry.

Ablation

Various coatings are precisely removed by laser (up to a width of 20 micrometres), to create microchannels that are invisible to the human eye. Consider circuit board applications or the decoating of glass plates to create invisible electric channels to control LED’s and sensors. This technique has great benefits to clients in the automotive industry (innovation in dashboards, windshields, mirrors) and construction markets (interior and exterior displays).

Surface modification

Enables us to update or restore existing products by making edges sharp again. This process can be used to repair expensive high-precision printing plates or apply modifications on large surface areas.

Welding

Glass is melted locally by laser, to create tiny welding points in the glass surface. It enables us to make tack welds to keep parts in place during an automated process or to weld micro products together. It is especially beneficial when sterile production conditions are required.

High-Precision Motion Technology

The Orion team is backed by over 15 years of experience in development and production of high-precision air and ball bearing systems. We take great pride in our ultra-precision motion technology (up to nanometre accuracy). It allows us to ensure fast operation speeds under heavy load and to maintain the highest level of accuracy during laser processing. We offer cutting-edge bearing technology, high-performance direct drives, servo drivers, high-accuracy positioning feedback and integrated motion control. Looking for rotary, linear or multi-axis systems? Orion Laser Tech combines laser technology and precision motion technology into a turnkey laser application process.

Materials

We are experienced in ceramic materials and any type of glass. Even extremely thin layers of glass (30 µm) are possible. Processing speeds can reach up to 1000 mm/s, while always maintaining superb quality. This ensures maximum output and yield in high volume production cycles, like display production.
