Polymer Micro Cutting

We offer high-quality laser micro-cutting and drilling services for various polymers and engineering plastics.

We work with thermoplastic polyesters, like polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polybutylene terephthalate (PBT). Also, BICOR films, cyclo olefin copolymer (COC), diverse polyester films, and foils.

Femtosecond lasers we use for polymers micromachining are unique due to minimized heat effects while keeping sub-micron feature size, providing superior quality and precision. It is a perfect choice when other lasers or mechanical polymer processing methods do not meet technical and quality requirements.

To ensure the best results while processing polymers and engineering plastics, we focus on minimal discoloration effects, cutting speed, and accuracy depending on customer needs.


  • Polymers thickness from 8 to 250 µm
  • Straight and circular cut trajectories
  • Hole tolerance ~2 µm
  • Minimal or no discoloration
  • Minimal or no signs of heat-affected deformations
  • Excellent cut surface quality, sub-micron precision of shape
  • High-speed laser processing

Polymers use cases

A microfluidics example

A microfluidics example

Polymers and engineering plastics are widely used in medical devices such as microfluidics, sutures and implantable textiles. It is also often used in industries as the aerospace, optical engineering, and biological engineering industry.

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET/X/Y) is one of the most used polymeric materials in the health care sector mainly due to its advantages: biocompatibility, high uniformity, mechanical strength, and resistance against chemicals and abrasion.
