Stoneham, Mass. – Advanced Laser Technologies specializes in producing custom laser micro-drilled holes in materials. Laser drilling creates precise, distortion- and stress-free openings with exact repeatability for fabricating parts used in critical aerospace, aviation, and electronic applications.

Precision micro-drilled holes can be produced as small as 0.010 in. dia. with ±0.0005 in. tolerance, in materials such as nickel alloys, Inconel, and stainless steel, depending upon the material, thickness, and configuration. Laser drilling produces distortion- and stress-free holes with exact repeatability that are superior to conventional hole drilling for fabricating critical components,

Utilizing 5-axis, 400-700 Watt Nd:YAG pulsed lasers, the company’s precision micro-drilled holes are approved by General Electric for laser cutting/drilling and airflow per P17TF2, P1TF78, P1TF10, ANSI-Z136.1, S-422 and E50TF217. The firm is AS9100 Rev. B certified, NADCAP approved for laser cutting/drilling, and has achieved Merit Supplier Status.

ALT typically produces aerospace, aviation, and electronic components. The company can also provide material sourcing and include processes such as bending and threading, with concurrent engineering, all qualification testing, and feature six sigma repeatability.
