oa CSIR Science Scope - Chiselling precise parts the high-tech way : industry
Laser ablation, the process of selectively removing material from a surface with a laser, is an integral part of the specialised technical processes undertaken at the CSIR laser ablation facility. The technology finds its application in prototype mould or model-making; engraving or embossing; and toolmaking such as mould inserts, electrodes, tool tips, master models and for punches. Materials that are difficult to process, such as those used in the aerospace industry, can be processed more efficiently.
