Universal Laser Systems (ULS) announces the addition of 3M™, Victrex® and Dexmet materials to its materials database, the most extensive repository of laser material processing parameters for materials in the range of 10 watts to 500 watts.
The 3M, Victrex and Dexmet materials new to the ULS materials database were specifically added for laser processing with the ULTRA and XLS platforms, suited for high accuracy and precision laser cutting, laser ablation and laser surface modification.
The materials include:
- 3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape 4412N
- 3M™ Thermally Conductive Silicone Interface Pad 5516
- Victrex® APTIV® PEEK Film
- Dexmet PolyGrid® 8PTFE10-125ST Expanded PTFE
- Dexmet MicroGrid® AL 25 Expanded Aluminum
Laser processing notes, describing the results of the laser-material interaction for these materials, are also available in the Materials Library on the ULS website to help potential customers explore the advantages of deploying laser technology within their manufacturing, research and development, and prototyping activities.
