Cutting parts of all shapes and sizes with a diverse group of equipment.
We offer laser cutting services in flat, extruded tube and molded polymer parts. With our diversity of wavelengths, we choose the proper tool for your individual material and geometry requirements.
Fuse metals with no filler material
Laser welding is a repeatable process and can be validated to tight specifications. Our equipment allows us to cover a wide range of medical applications. This encompasses spot welding wires and tubing (less than .004 spot size) to laser welding surgical and orthopedic tools that require .030” penetration.
Common inspections techniques include helium leak testing on hermetic welds, and tensile testing.
- Hermetic seal and structural welds
- Spot welds to .003″ diameter
- Welding of 300 Series SS and most alloys (including dissimilar metals)
- Helium leak testing, tensile testing and metallurgical analysis
- Cleanroom processing
- Precision component joining
- Wire welding
- Orthopedic tools
- Sealed catheter tips
Stainless steel, cobalt chrome, nitinol, and precious metals are just a few of the many materials we are set up to handle with our diverse selection of laser equipment. The cutting, welding, and drilling are performed on six distinct families of equipment allowing us to pick the proper tool for your specification. These workstations range from high-power fiber lasers to Femtosecond “Cold Cutting” laser systems.

Polymers and Bioabsorbable (Biodegradable) Polymers
Multi-lumen extrusions (of any configuration), tubing, balloons, coated wire, or sheet, any odd shape, we have the skills and tools to make the finest plastic micro scale components. With multiple wavelengths dedicated to laser processing of polymers we can choose the proper tool for your application. Machining in multi-lumen extrusions is a specialty that has developed out of our years of experience in catheter machining.
