Abstract

Micro/nano material processing has become the cornerstone technology for the production of many modern products, and the unique features of laser energy make laser one of the most powerful tools for micro/nano manufacturing. Laser micromachining is flexible and can replicate features with high accuracy, but the manufacturing cost and throughput are normally not competitive enough for mass production. Thus, the optimal engineering solution usually requires integration with other energy fields and other processes. With the case study of a high aspect ratio metal structure, this paper shows the common engineering contradiction between quality and productivity, and highlights the value of new methodologies of process innovation found in Intelligent Energy Field Manufacturing.
