What is Laser Direct Imaging (LDI)? - March 3rd, 2022

Limata X3000

Laser Direct Imaging, also commonly known as LDI, plays a key role in the metal etching process. Traditional etching involves coating the metal plate with a polymer photo resist. After that, the digital design is exposed to the photo resist using ultraviolet light and photo tooling where the dark lines create a pattern on the surface of the photo resist.

What is Diffusion Bonding? - September 10th, 2021

Diffusion Bonding

Diffusion Bonding is a metalworking technique in which two metals are joined together by applying dynamic load and heat in controlled conditions. The diffusion of atoms at the interface of two joining metals takes place within these conditions which lead to uniform grain structure joint closing the interfacial voids leading to solid-state bonding.
