Photo Solutions micromachining tools, precision micromachining

We provide precision micromachining services for a variety of industry applications.

In addition to Photo Solutions’ photonic device manufacturing capabilities, we offer high tolerance precision micromachining services for customer-provided materials such as PET, Kapton, ceramics, glass, and other difficult to machine materials. We can accurately machine features on substrates using our vision recognition equipment, holding registration as tight as +/- 5um. Contact us for more info or a quote.

Industry Applications

Micromachining is the process where microscopic pieces of material are removed for high geometrical accuracy. The process, as with most in photonics, requires high tolerance machining to achieve this minute precision. There are a wide range of industries and applications for which precision micromachining services can be used, including optoelectronics, photonics, and the medical industry (microfluidics).

Aluminum Micromachining to Finished Patterns

In addition to CNC diamond glass machining, we also provide aluminum micromachining to finished patterns. Aluminum is one of the most commonly used manufacturing materials due to its strength to weight ratio, high corrosion resistance, and excellent joining characteristics. Photo Solutions offers precision microlithography services to our customers’ specifications.

Precision Micromachining Process

We keep our process simple and use only the highest quality materials and the latest practices. 


  1. Customer provides the drawings or files
  2. We review the drawings and provide a quote 
  3. Customer provides or we source the material  
  4. We turnaround the finished project in about 2-3 weeks 
  5. We ship the material back to the customer
