Ceramics are oxidic and silicate materials with structures consisting of crystals or composites of crystalline and vitreous components. They are non-metallic, polycrystalline and inorganic.
The interaction between lasers and ceramics is generally complex. This complexity means that it is vital to use specifically shaped laser beams to process the material. ACI Laser GmbH has developed lasers for these applications that penetrate deep into the material with their sharp beam profile, achieving exceptional results.
- Oxide ceramics such as magnesium oxide, aluminium oxide and titanium oxide
- Non-oxide ceramics such as carbides, borides and nitrides
