Higher Power System for Thick Wall Nitinol Implant Designs.
Norman Noble continues to innovate manufacturing of medical devices and implants with the introduction of Noble STEALTH HP. This higher power system was developed to provide the cleanest cut with no HAZ (Heat Affected Zone).
Norman Noble’s Vice President of Manufacturing, Dan Stefano said, “We are excited to announce the release of our Stealth HP Laser Cutting technology. This state-of-the-art laser cutting process provides for cutting thicker wall nitinol medical devices HAZ free while reducing the need for costly secondary operations. This technology, coupled with our fully automated/validated processes, continues to position Norman Noble as a leading contract manufacturer for the production of medical devices and implants.”
Noble STEALTH HP is an ultrashort pulse laser that reduces or eliminates costly deburring and post-processing steps because it can cut with no heat affected zone. These elements increase quality and yield of medical devices. Athermal lasers enable the machining of next generation vascular and orthopedic implants that otherwise would be impossible to produce.
