Copper wire ablated

The Magic of Laser Ablation

Laser ablation is a method of wire stripping where enamel coatings can be removed from precise locations with non-mechanical means. The process involves use of laser energy to ablate precise layers of enamel without causing damage to the metallic conductor. The energy is in the form of light waves that are absorbed by the polymer coating, typically a relatively thin layer of polyimide, causing the atoms to be ripped from the wire surface.
