When you hear the term “precision lasering”, your imagination can take you in a great many directions. But what is precision lasering? It involves cutting or scribing to very fine measurements, like scribing messages or cutting materials for jobs or operations attached to the jobs.
There are low-end machines that you can buy for your home that will do the job on a much smaller, less accurate and slower scale that can cost as little as $200. But for your industrial jobs, the cost and quality will differ drastically.
A quality machine will run you a few thousand dollars while a top-of-the-line femtosecond laser can run you hundreds of thousands of dollars with all of the associated service fees and maintenance contracts that can run your cost up another six figures.
Still, the costs are what they are for a very good reason: femtosecond lasers provide an accuracy that is tough to match with a quality that lesser-grade machines or techniques just can’t live up to.
What femto laser companies are there?
When it comes to femtosecond laser services and machines, there are few who can match the pedigree or quality of Laserod. Laserod provides their femtosecond lasers to a litany of the very best universities in the country, like Stanford, MIT, Brown, UCLA and many more.
Additionally, Laserod provides machines and service for some of the biggest names on the Fortune 500: Raytheon, Rockwell Scientific, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, IBM and so many more. They are the best of the best when it comes to femtosecond technology and their history more than speaks for itself.
They provide cutting and marking services using their high-quality laser shop, while also providing custom machines and services. Each of their machines is set up by an experienced engineer who will show each customer exactly how to use each machine to the fullest. By the time the engineer leaves, the client knows exactly what it has on its hands and how to use it.
What is a femto laser?
A femto laser creates bursts of laser energy at a high rate of speed. It is measured in femtoseconds, which is one quadrillionth of a second. Femto lasers are used to target and break apart tissue or other materials all the way at the molecular level, with damaging the surround areas.
Femtosecond lasers are typically used for cosmetic eye surgeries like cataracts or LASIK, making the procedures not only faster than they’ve ever been, but incredibly accurate and precise. Gone are the days of metal surgical tools needed to cut into your eye; now, lasers can get the job done in a fraction of the time with the precision level higher than its ever been before.
Clinics that run a lot of these surgeries will see the exponential cost of the machines quickly paid for thanks to the amount of patients that they can see and treat, whereas traditional surgeries would take far longer.
Femtosecond lasers have greatly improved this industry and continue to expand its reach and effect as the years – and the technology – progress.Femto Laser Cutting Company
