A-Laser Provides Precision Cutting for Kapton Spacers

Jan 28, 2010

BEAVERTON, OR — January 2010 — A-Laser, a division of FCT Assembly and a premier laser cutting service specializing in the ablation of ultra-thin metals and plastics, is now able to provide intricate cutting for Kapton spacers.

A-Laser’s cutting service is often asked to cut small dimensions in Kapton films. The company is able to cut two mil slots with its lasers. A-Laser is able to cut very intricate patterns while maintaining the highest precision.

Spacers often are used in test socket applications as contact holders, where part profiles seem to be shrinking. Therefore, A-Laser’s ability to process a very clean, high-quality part for this ultra-thin material using laser cutting methods sets the company apart from other laser cutting services, as well as stamp and etch houses. A-Laser’s laser cutting service always is on the cutting edge of the precision parts market.

“Our laser operators are trained to understand and implement high level process demands from our cutting edge customer base, allowing us to take on work that other shops turn away,” said Josh Saunders, VP of FCT Assembly’s Parts Division.

A-Laser’s ability to laser cut parts to 12 micron tolerances enables customers to design products much more accurately and expect better performance from their products. A-laser is the premier laser cutting service for ultra thin and tight tolerance laser cutting applications.
