During this process, an assist gas is used to irradiate and remove material. XL Precision Technologies have a range of laser tools including Fibre and YAG Tube Cutters and Flat Bed cutters.
Laser cutting is best applied to applications where:
- Geometrical features required are very small
- Geometrical requirements are complex and need to be applied over the length of a component or implant
- Catheter (-parts) require custom properties based on the vascular path:
- Radius of curvature
- Transference of torque
- Tensile strength
- Variety in stiffness
XL Precision can meet the following specifications in laser cutting:
