Athermal lasers enable the machining of next generation implants and devices that otherwise would be impossible to produce.
NOBLE 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. Our S.T.E.A.L.T.H. athermal lasers create highly precise features in every material, including bioabsorbable polymers, shape memory metals and other exotic alloys, without producing any heat affected zone (HAZ). This can reduce—and in some cases eliminate—costly deburring and post-processing steps, increasing both product quality and yield.
We provide product design teams with a capability never before achieved on a production-ready platform. The narrow kerf capability combined with accelerated processing speed, makes S.T.E.A.L.T.H. the solution for newest vascular implant designs with smallest geometry and highest fatigue requirements.
