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 that need high temperatures to obtain a sterile surface.
The fiber 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 types of 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 has the advantages of small heating area, accurate processing, non-contact heating, etc., and is widely used in various fields of medical equipment.
● 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 clean room.
● Laser welding is commonly used for housing packaging of active implantable medical devices, earwax protectors, balloon catheters, etc.
