Rapid Prototype Tool for Micro Fabrication of Medical Devices
Compared with other lasers and methods, the RapidX250 is very flexible, able to micro fabricate 2?D (flat sheets, tubes) and 3?D parts (balloons, non?planar surfaces), including XYZ, theta and goniometer. At 193nm laser wavelength, the laser can ablate cleanly fluropolymers (such as nylon, pebax, Teflon), bioabsorbable polymers and glass. The system has a quick exchange scheme to allow the user to switch to 248nm laser wavelength, ideal for machining polymers, ceramic and metals (such as stents).
Lastly, the RapidX250 was designed to be user friendly with a DXF file?to?CNC converter to quickly convert concepts into prototypes, ideal for a multi?user environment.
