Laser Micromachining Technology Lowers Manufacturing Costs of Polymer-Based Medical Devices
Thu, 10/22/2009 - 5:43am
Resonetics (Booth 1553) offers the drilling of micro holes; both circular and complex non-circular holes; stripping of polymer insulation from wires, cables, and coils; and cutting of polymer sheets down to 1.0 micron precision with the proven production capability of UV laser micromachining technology.
The company provides medical device manufacturers a roadmap to dramatically lower the cost of manufacturing through novel automated solutions such as parallel processing, large area ablation, and auto-loading. Resonetics offers case studies where medical device companies have lowered their manufacturing cost by 50%, while improving quality and yield through automated process control measures such as in-situ part inspection and auto-alignment using machine vision.
