Laser drilled probe cards at SWTW-San Diego, 5-8 June.

OpTek Systems your quality manufacturing partner for laser drilled probe cards, will be exhibiting at the Semiconductor Wafer Test Workshop, San Diego, CA, 5-8 June 2016  OpTek Systems is a global supplier of precision laser micromachining equipment and sub-contract laser processing services.

Laser drilled arrays of precision micro holes down to of a few microns diameter, with 50:1 or better aspect ratio and exceptional accuracy, repeatability and positioning.  Go way beyond the limitations of mechanical drilling and avoid the cost, risk and delays associated with tool failures.

Laser Drilled Probe Cards

The advantages of non-contact laser processing for probe card drilling include:

  • Reduction in drill timesLaser Drilled Probe Card Pattern Rectangular Laser Drilled Probe Cards
  • Smaller hole sizes
  • Elimination of drill bit failure
  • Accurate and reproducible for very high hole counts
  • Improved yields, particularly at high hole counts
  • Avoidance of “drill wander” on thicker materials
  • Ability to process hard materials
  • Ability to drill non-round holes


Capable of drilling all commonly used materials, including:

  • Hard ceramics: Alumina, Silicon Nitride, and others
  • Machinable Ceramics: Macerite, Photoveel, Macor and others
  • Polymers: Polyimides (Kapton, Vespel, Cirlex, etc), Peek
