Rofin Baasel Lasertech’s stent cutting system with a femtosecond laser, the StarCut Tube Femto, offers cold laser cutting for medical device manufacturing. Femtosecond lasers process materials faster than energy can diffuse within the atomic lattice; therefore, no heat is transferred to the surrounding material, eliminating recast, distortion and burr. The device integrates a compact laser source with field-proven and long-term stability, properties that are essential for industrial manufacturing. Manufacturing of medical devices from tube stock typically relies on laser fusion cutting with pulse widths on the microsecond scale. The StarCut Tube Femto mechanics were adapted to the specific requirements for handling thin-walled, mechanically fragile semifinished products.
