Company has augmented its ability to drill precise holes in polymer material by adding automated vision recognition to its process. It programs its automation to visually recognize color and pattern differences in material, and then use the coordinates of these detected differences as reference points from which to locate its laser drilling. The result is a highly adaptable process that can produce complex arrays of holes drilled in reference to any distinct structure imbedded in a polymer material. This drilling process is ideal for machining catheter bodies reinforced with a metal braid.
