MEDICAL DEVICE MANUFACTURING
Laser micro processing is a technology that enables the manufacturing of components with micron accuracy. For the medical application such as stent therapy (especially in coronary heart disease), catheters, IOL (Intraocular Lenses), vascular clips, surgical staples, hollow needles, endoscopes, hypo tubes the highest micro material processing quality demands. Laser micromachining provides extremely gentle processing method that causes continuous growth of this industry. The ultrashort high-energy laser pulses allow material processing without HAZ (Heat Affected Zone) and burr formation. Multi-axis options make possible arbitrary geometries and various cutting angles. Wide laser parameters selection allows to process different diameter and thickness tubes as well as wire stripping and different polymer coating selective removal.
