In no industry is precision more critical than in the medical device industry, where projects often involve unique requirements and challenges. Medical laser cutting processes provide the absolute accuracy necessary to medical and surgical parts, ranging from stents and bone shavers to vascular clips, and much in between.
Leaders in Medical Device Laser Processing
At Laserage, our precision tube cutting, laser machining, laser cutting, laser drilling, plastic cutting and other medical laser capabilities—including finishing and custom assemblies—are backed by over 35 years of experience. These extensive capabilities, available for nearly every medically-approved material, are counted on by medical OEMs worldwide.
In addition to our full core medical laser capabilities, we can provide ancillary processes, including heat setting, forming, Af testing, tumbling, micro-abrasive blasting, chemical processing and many others.
As leaders in medical device laser processing, we continue to make significant investments in purchasing, installing and maintaining the most advanced laser technologies and state-of-the-art motion control systems. All of our medical solutions are constantly reviewed and upgraded, maintaining the highest level of quality along with full compliance with all of the latest industry codes and mandates.
