TRUMPF offers fast and economical solutions for laser micro-processing of virtually any kind of defense or aerospace material, including semiconductors, metals, dielectrics and plastics. Newer materials such as composites and ceramics are also easily machined. Using ultra-short laser pulses, the TRUMPF's TruMicro product line can efficiently process materials with almost no thermal or mechanical effects. TRUMPF also offers high-performance short-pulsed lasers that are ideal for maintenance and repair operations (MRO) that require fast and efficient surface area cleaning and ablation. Applications are removal of paints, rust, oil, thin films and protective coatings from various types of base materials. This laser can also prepare large areas for welding, applying adhesives and other surface treatments. Due to the laser's short pulse durations, little or no heat is transferred to the base material during processing.
