For over 40 years, Lenox Laser has specialized in precision laser drilling of small holes, slits, and shapes in a wide variety of substrates.
Flow control orifices are available in standard Swagelok® fittings, as well as custom applications – with holes ranging from the thousands of microns, down to 0.5 micron. These orifices can be calibrated to NIST(National Institute of Standards and Technology) traceable standards, and are designed to perform at a specified flow rate. In 2009, we unveiled several new lasers, expanding our precision drilling and marking capabilities. Our enhanced laser marking facilities incorporate ultra-fast, ultra-precise lasers and software. Laser marking is possible in a wide range of materials and thicknesses and are available for custom applications. We have processed silicon, titanium, stainless steel, nickel, polycarbonates, and other materials. In addition to our laser drilling of microholes, Lenox Laser also laser processes custom projects.
The personal goal and commitment of each member of the Lenox Laser Corporation’s engineering team is to provide our customers with reliable and robust products made to specified custom requirements and conditions, such as, high energy light beam densities, aggressive chemical and biological environments, mechanical stresses and vibrations, aerospace and underwater uses, etc.
We have a wide range of tools at our disposal. Our lasers range from CW(continuous wave) to picoseconds in pulse widths, from far IR(infrared) to hard UV(ultraviolet) wavelengths, from Joules to micro-Joules in laser beam energy. We can drill to a specified gas or liquid flow or to a specific light intensity depending on the application and specifications of the project.
We have a fully equipped machine shop and use advanced chemical etching processes. Our experienced staff can combine some or all of these capabilities in a multi-step process whereas a single technique application would be impractical or impossible. In each unique case, the choice of product materials and manufacturing processes are specific and may affect future product performance.
Both our production and engineering teams are readily available to help customers consider the specifics of the original product design. We offer our expertise in developing and redesigning a product to create both a feasible and more cost effective project with precision and accuracy.
Lenox Laser has a distinguished history of successful medical product development under the auspices of NIH grants enabling us to introduce innovative products to a highly competitive global market. We have pioneered and have become an industry standard in a metrology associated with holes drilled for leak detection in the medical, pharmaceutical, automobile and food industries.

Meet our founder:
President of Lenox Laser
Joe learned to be resourceful and innovative by working with his father, Charlie d’Entremont. Charlie was a man that got things done even when others criticized his approach as silly, awkward, or even impossible. Charlie’s business was in scrap metal and recycling, so Joe learned that something’s value is based on one’s perception of it. As the old adage says: “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
During his time working at his father’s business, Joe learned how to repair electronics and televisions. This sparked his interest in the fields electro-optical and laser applications. He took optical classes at Northeastern University and worked at various companies developing his skill in optical radar systems, semiconductor devices, and YAG and ruby laser systems.
Joe first became an entrepreneur in 1969, starting New England Laser and American Foam Products in Billerica, Massachusetts. In 1973, with a desire to develop his new-found faith, Joe gave away the two divisions to his colleagues who helped him start the company, deciding to attend Bible college in Lenox, Massachusetts.
In 1981, Joe took the resourceful innovation he learned from his father and started a small laser company out of his garage. Because he started the business in Lenox, he named the business Lenox Laser. In 1988, Joe moved the business from Massachusetts to Maryland and in 1990, Lenox Laser moved to its present-day location in Glen Arm, Maryland.
Joe grew the company over 40+ years through dedication, faith, and the values instilled in him by his father. Today Lenox Laser has become an internationally recognized company, shipping to businesses in all over the globe.
