Laser marking and engraving of medical devices. All device identifiers (UDI) for medical devices, implants, tools, and instruments are required to be permanently, clearly and accurately marked. The laser-treated marking resists corrosion and undergoes a robust sterilization process, including centrifugation and autoclaving processes requiring high temperatures to obtain a sterile surface.
The nanosecond mopa fiber laser and picosecond laser marking machine can mark UDI, manufacturer information, GS1 code, product name, and serial number, etc., which is undoubtedly the most suitable technology at present. Almost all medical products can be laser marked, including implants, surgical instruments and disposable products such as cannulas, catheters, and hoses.
Markable materials include metal, stainless steel, ceramics, and plastics.
Laser Welding of medical devices. Laser welding has the advantages of small heating area, accurate processing, non-contact heating, etc. It is widely used in various medical equipment fields.
Laser welding produces few weld slag and debris, and no additive is required for the welding process so that the entire welding work can be done in a cleanroom.
Laser welding is commonly used for housing packaging of active implantable medical devices, earwax protectors, balloon catheters, etc.
