Laser Marking System for Stainless Steel Medical Wires

Designed for marking high contrast bands on stainless steel medical wires, this CDRH Class 1 fiber laser marking system offers seamless functionality. The wires can be effortlessly auto-fed through the left side panel, and the system alerts the operator when the wire is perfectly positioned for the wire puller to initiate its operation. Throughout the marking process, a rotary unit works in tandem with a picosecond fiber laser, connected to an x-axis, to create the desired high contrast bands along the wire. Once the marking is finished, the wire exits the system into a bin attached to the front of the machine.

The precision and versatility of ultrafast lasers have propelled their widespread adoption as a preferred tool for marking medical devices. By emitting ultra-short pulses of light, these lasers achieve exceptional resolution while minimizing heat damage to the materials. Consequently, a range of medical devices, including implants, surgical instruments, and diagnostic tools, can be efficiently marked with ultrafast lasers to satisfy regulatory requirements and enhance traceability. Furthermore, the utilization of ultrafast lasers facilitates the effortless creation of distinctive marking designs like barcodes and serial numbers. Undoubtedly, this technology has sparked a revolution in the medical device industry, empowering safer and more reliable identification and tracking of these crucial devices.
