Laser Marking

Virtually any material can be permanently laser marked using one of the extensive range of ROFIN laser markers. To achieve traceability of surgical instruments, diagnostic devices and pharmaceuticals, a 2D matrix code is often used, which is the most effective way coding a device with the minimum sized code. Example applications in medical device marking include:

  • 2D matrix marking of stainless steel surgical instruments and blades
  • Marking of scales on inhalers and other discrete dose devices
  • Logo and batch number marking on plastic housings
  • Permanent marking of titanium implants

Fine Laser Cutting

The fine spot size, low heat input and short duration pulses associated with fine laser cutting allow medical devices to be cut with the finest kerf width whilst also delivering the highest quality and fastest speed. Laser cutting is a consistent and repeatable process, lending itself to high degrees of automation.

Fine Laser Welding

With medical devices becoming smaller and more sophisticated, the need for fine joining processes to spot or seam weld small diameter wires or thin sheet material is increasing. Laser welding of medical devices allows consistent quality and highest throughput in manual, small batch, or continuous high volume production. Examples of laser welding applications in this market include:

  • Welding of endoscopes and surgical instruments in stainless steel
  • Fine wire joining for braided nitinol stents
  • Titanium welding for implants like pacemakers and defibrillators
  • Plastic welding in pharmaceutical drug delivery devices and fluid filters
