Hi, there are many type of lasers and each have its own applications. Have you tried the short pulse laser? I was told that it will have very minimal heat dissipated on the surface. On the other hand, there is also a water assisted laser where the water could also act as a coolant.

I am very familliar with various lasers and cutting technologies. This is probably the only laser technology that has a chance to do what you are after on FR-4 G10, G11 etc and not burn. It's new ground for them and I'll bet the system is not tooled for PCB's as it was developed for wafer processing.
