Ultra-Short Pulse Lasers Are Great Tools for Processing Plastics for Medical Devices

Posted by Geoff Shannon on Tue, Feb 27, 2018 @ 12:35 PM

In the past few years, we have found that ultra-short pulse (USP) lasers are being used more and more for medical device manufacturing – from stents and catheters, to wire stripping and balloon texturing. The level of quality and dimensional accuracy needed fits well with the USP lasers, which do a great job of drilling, cutting, skiving, texturing and machining both plastic and metal-plastic combinations.

Nanosecond laser micro welding: the possibilities!

Posted by Geoff Shannon on Tue, May 23, 2017 @ 12:30 PM

The nanosecond fiber laser is the most recent addition to AMADA MIYACHI's broad portfolio of micro welding solutions. Its output parameters are a bit different than other laser welding sources like pulsed Nd:YAG ,quasi-continuous-wave (QCW) fiber and the CW fiber laser. As the name suggests, the nanosecond fiber laser’s pulse widths are in the nanosecond range - under 250 nanoseconds (ns) - with pulse energies around 1 millijoule (mJ).
