Laser Cutting of a Micro Valve Membrane

For over 45 years, Miller Gasket has been a proud single source producer of custom gaskets, as well as providing high quality die cutting services, and high volume laser cutting. In the project highlighted here, we were contracted to perform the precision laser cutting of a micro valve membrane for a customer in the valve industry, a part used to direct flow of fluids. Employing our advanced 100 watt laser, .0005” thick (1/2 mil) polyester material was cut to the specified configurations, holding the tightest tolerances of ±0.002” during the laser cutting process. Finished dimensions of the irregular shaped membrane were .75” by .600”, with a thickness of 0.0005”. Holes and slots were also cut in to the part as specified, without sacrificing tolerance levels. Quality and accuracy were guaranteed with in-process testing using an onsite Micro-Vu vertex measuring center.

1000 units were produced for this project, completed after a turnaround time of one week. The valve membranes were packaged and shipped to the customer in the East Coast.
