Special welding processes are required to join together dissimilar materials for medtech implants.
At Norman Noble, our engineering team has developed unique welding technologies to weld exotic-grade metals and many types of dissimilar materials. This is especially effective for thin-walled, tubular medical components. No filler materials are used in Norman Noble’s laser welding processes, which are conducted using inert gases.
Laser spot welding and seam welding can be tested using tensile tests, torque tests or cross sectioning for penetration confirmation.
Our laser welding medical device services are offered as a validated process.
