Drilling Down with Precision:

Cutting Edge Technology for Hard and Brittle Materials

Laser Augmented Diamond Drilling (LADD) is a technology developed as a manufacturing solution for drilling hard, brittle and challenging materials.  By using a hybrid combination of lasers and a transparent cutting tool such as diamonds, the solution decreases the damage rate of the workpiece material and provides a high-quality final products (reducing the need for a post process) which leads to increase in productivity and lower manufacturing costs.

Materials which benefit most from the technology:

  • CFRPs, Carbon Fiber (Composite Structures)
  • Ceramic Matrix Composites
  • Ceramics
  • Semiconductors/Silicon
  • Glass
  • Rocks / High Quality Gems
