The application space for ultrafast lasers in MedTech is wide spread: drilling of polymer-catheters, cutting, black marking and surface functionalization are some examples, where ultrafast lasers can excel over other technologies with their ability to sublimate material with high precision without causing undesired side-effects such as excessive heat affected zones, melt- or dross formation. To obtain maximum quality at high throughput, flexible laser-sources with advanced features are required to get the most out of respective processes. We will discuss those special laser-functionalities and how they enable you to efficiently use the power of the laser in your manufacturing task.
