5-Axis Contour Milling

Single Operation, Automated.

Norman Noble uses our state-of-the-art machines for the highest speed, single operation milling for the smallest and most complex parts in the medtech industry.

Athermal lasers enable the machining of next generation implants and devices that otherwise would be impossible to produce. S.T.E.A.L.T.H. (System To Enable Ablation Laser Technology Haz-Free), a Norman Noble-exclusive, represents the most advanced athermal laser technology available for production of medical implants.

S.T.E.A.L.T.H. athermal lasers create highly precise features in every material, including bioabsorbable polymers, shape memory nitinol metals and other exotic alloys, without producing any heat affected zone (HAZ). This can reduce—and in many cases eliminate—costly deburring and post-processing steps, increasing both product quality and yield. The narrow kerf capability combined with fastest processing speeds, makes S.T.E.A.L.T.H the best solution for many of the newest product designs.

Benefits

  • Fastest Laser Process
  • True Athermal Ablation with NO Heat Affected Zone (HAZ)
  • .00045” Kerf width for ALL grades of Nitinol
  • .00025” Kerf width for bioreorbable
