cooling and automatic part handling options. The machine was purchased from one of the leading manufacturers of CNC equipment and is known throughout the world for its high-quality production capabilities. The Laser Swiss cutting system is available for laser cutting as well as CNC machining precision metal tube High quality Laser Swiss system for cutting precision tubing and CNC machining

LASERAGE, one of the brands of AMETEK Engineered Medical Components (EMC), has launched a new laser cutting and CNC machining solution for the medical device market. The fully integrated laser cutting system offers comprehensive Swiss machining capabilities, as well as through-part

and rod components, ranging from 1mm to 20mm in diameter. Other capabilities include ID expansion and increase, laser cut patterns, OD reduction and CNC drilling. All these features will enable highly precise medical tube and rod applications to be created quickly and accurately. Dan Capp, director technology programs, AMETEK EMC, said: “The medical device sector is an exciting place to work, as technology and innovation are advancing at an incredible rate. We are proud to be able to lead the way with our high-precision, high quality Laser Swiss system for cutting precision tubing and CNC machining. We see our system as being highly valuable for manufacturing surgical and medical instruments, structural heart components, orthopaedic tools and implants and vascular applications.” Surgical and medical instruments that can be produced using the Laser Swiss system include robotic surgical instruments, while structural heart applications include delivery systems for heart valve replacements and repairs. In the field of orthopaedics, the system will be used for surgical tools and implants, while the vascular market will benefit from atherectomy catheters, among other key components and equipment. Combining laser cutting with CNC Swiss machining in this way is productive in terms of costs, lead times and quality control. Advantages to Laserage’s Laser Swiss system, the company said, include reduced production times, which will speed up manufacturing processes and reduce costs. The Laser Swiss system can also take the place of multiple single-purpose machines in a busy production site, saving valuable room and resources.
