Radiopaque Marking (Micro-Riveting)

Radiopaque Marking (Micro-Riveting)

Micro-riveting of radiopaque markers is a vital prerequisite on an increasing number of endovascular medical devices. The value of radiopaque markers is clearly seen in visibility improvement during deployment of the device. Markers allow for improved tracking and positioning of an implantable device during a procedure using fluoroscopy or radiography.

Laserage has developed a process that can be used across a combination of devices and riveting materials, to meet your specific design requirements. In addition to the micro-riveting operation, Laserage offers in-process testing of the micro-riveted component. A number of marker materials can be used; gold, platinum alloys, tantalum, etc.
