Loadpoint Production

Loadpoint’s production facility for dicing, cutting, drilling, grinding & prototyping

Loadpoint operate an in-house production facility that is used by customers who prefer to outsource their material processing needs. We process materials from a wide range of industries including automotive, medical, aerospace, space industry, electronics / semiconductors as well as for many academic and research-based institutions.

Their reasons for sending us their materials are varied but include the following objectives:

  • Achievement of high cut quality
  • Cost / productivity savings
  • Extra production capacity to meet demand
  • Pre-production trials
  • Prototyping of new products
  • Projects to determine a better dicing process

Our capabilities include:

Several 6” / 155mm, 12” / 300mm and 420x300mm dicing saws

Cut depths from 0.010mm to 55mm

Core drilling and large diameter glass disc production

Profiling and micro-milling

Resin potting / backfilling for sonar arrays

Post-dicing cleaning (spray and ultrasonic)

3 –axis optical measurement

Bespoke processes to customer requirements
