Laser processing is a technology that produces faster, cleaner, more accurate and effective removal of a variety of coatings on round and cylindrical components; such as hypotubes and guide wires. This MIYACHI EAPRO system is designed for bulk processing of these medical parts which typically have the form of round wires, tubes and rods. Diameters range of 50 microns to 2mm and typical lengths from 420 up to 3000mm.
The system may also be used for advanced surface treatments, including discolouration, foaming and darkening or annealing. By selecting the correct laser source and part feeder, most plastic and metal parts that are fed as a bundle or on a reel may be laser processed.
The laser process creates a cleaner cut with smoother edges when compared to more traditional methods such as grinding. It eliminates burrs, nicks and does not result in increased surface roughness of the metal beneath the coating; if so desired. In addition, this process leaves a much cleaner surface after processing. The result being a cleaner, smoother, safer and more precise ablation window. This system will improve production processes, enable higher throughput levels and accommodate a wider range of materials.
