What are the Advantages of Laser Micro Drilling in the Medical Industry?

Laserod Incorporated was established by Rod Waters in the mid 1990s, succeeding Florod, an organization built up by Waters and an accomplice during the 1970s.

Laser micromachining today holds an indispensable part in the medical sector. Lasers are used in the manufacturing and processing of medical equipment. Medical laser micro-drilling services are much sought after for manufacturing components such as dental, orthopedic, cardiovascular implants, hearing aid mechanisms, etc.

Lasers can be employed for carrying out critical operations such as welding, drilling, machining, and cutting. Often, service providers need to work on tight tolerances and are governed by highly stringent codes. Considering these aspects, it has become extremely important to partner with a firm that can offer the highest quality of services.

Several different medically-approved materials can be easily and perfectly processed using laser micro-drilling services. These materials include nitinol, platinum, titanium alloys, ceramic, silicone, and other bio-absorbable materials. Besides laser processing, several other secondary operations can be used on these materials. These include heat-setting, AF testing, forming, micro-abrasive blasting, acid pickle, electropolishing, and passivation.

With the rising reliance of the medical industry on lasers, various new and evolving applications can be found. Some of the most popular uses include manufacturing stents, bone saws, reamers and shavers, vascular clips and connectors, versatile shafts, hones, and many other miniature parts. There is a range of stringent regulations and mandates regulating the manufacturing and processing of these parts. The company you choose should be accredited to comply with all of them.
