Norman Noble is the largest laser contract manufacturer of medical implants and devices.
Machining medtech product innovations to exact drawing specifications can be costly and time intensive. And as medical implant and device requirements continue to get more complex, ensuring the manufacturability of highly precise components becomes even more important.
At Norman Noble, we integrate and develop our own proprietary laser machining technologies, which are 3X faster than conventional systems and can maintain accuracies of +/- .0001” through an entire production run. Our laser machining technologies provide highly efficient manufacturing processes to help customers bring the newest product innovations to market.
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. 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).
Facts at a Glance:
- Fastest laser systems
- Nitinol, exotic metals, and bioresorbable materials
- Tubing or flat sheet
- Fiber, ND:YAG, athermal laser cutting technologies
- Single machine laser cutting, turning and milling
- Over 130 laser systems
- Maintain accuracies of +/- .0001” through an entire production run
Manufacturing parts designed for Swiss turning previously required three different manufacturing steps. The same parts, and parts that were previously cost-prohibitive, can now be manufactured in a single, validated machine: Noble SynchroFlash.
SynchroFlash combines Swiss turning & milling with laser machining to create one, highly efficient and cost-effective operation. SynchroFlash provides cost savings, faster production, better quality and higher yields versus competing manufacturing methods, which require multiple, separate processes. SynchroFlash achieves its extraordinary efficiencies by eliminating the start-stop-start nature of producing parts on separate equipment, ultimately reducing the amount of handling, time and personnel required to manufacture parts.
