Starlink Laser Technology Ltd, Hongkong
The ICT market increasingly requires higher quality and new design possibilities. Yick Sang Metal and Plastic Mould Ltd., founded in 1981, understood the situation and in 2014 created Starlink Laser Technology Ltd., specializing in Laser texturing. They invested strategically in GF Machining Solutions Laser machines for their machining quality and customer services.
Johnson Matthey, CA, U.S.
Johnson Matthey’s medical components manufacturing business (JM) has found an answer to support their customers in producing medical devices from precious metals with extremely precise parts and high product quality. Using ultrafast laser technology, JM is able to meet and exceed their customer’s demand for smaller, burr-free holes and cuts – and help produce safer, more effective devices such as catheter ablation tips to deliver more efficient and precise treatment for cardiac arrhythmia. Catheter tips need to be small enough to travel through human veins, perform complex procedures, and meet all government safety and quality requirements. Thanks to ultrafast laser fine cutting and micro hole drilling, material can be removed without generating heat, enabling the machining of tiny holes with sufficient surface and edge quality to bring new catheter irrigation tip designs to life. JM utilizes a turnkey automated laser machining system from Microlution that achieves higher accuracy and repeatability, reduces cycle times, and increases machine throughput.
GM Components Holdings, NY, U.S.
In today’s automotive industry, GDi injector makers are competing to be technology leaders. The goal: Higher precision for a higher spray performance to maximize fuel economy and minimize emissions. New injector designs require new levels of precision, process flexibility, and repeatability. GM Components Holdings (GMCH), a subsidiary of General Motors, manufactures and distributes automotive components with a strong focus on engine management systems. The Rochester Components plant uses the most advanced technologies to build high quality fuel injection systems for world class engines. With Microlution’s ultrafast laser system, GMCH achieves greater flexibility and higher precision while at the same time lowering flow variation and reducing cycle times.
