The Raydiance R-Drill 100 solution is a factory tool based on the R-100 laser platform, that drills and cuts any material to specific dimensions and tolerances. Manufacturers have found that the R-Drill creates ultra precise holes as much as five times faster than traditional micro drilling equipment, and by removing material through heatless machining, creates a finished part in a single process. The speed and quality of the R-Drill result in a solution that cuts manufacturers’ production costs in half.
R-Drill solutions bundle the Raydiance R-100 femtosecond laser with specialty 3-D beam scanning components along with Raydiance’s micro drill application software. For micro hole applications, the R-Drill can be programmed to remove any material, control hole taper (positive, negative, zero) and shape (round, elliptical). For cutting or trenching applications, the solutions can be tailored for trench depth, wall angle and surface quality.
