What is Laser Ablation?

Laser ablation is the technique of using a laser to ablate or "vaporize" material from a surface. It selectively removes layers of substrate or coating from the surface to improve performance parameters. Laser ablation is most ideal for producing parts from materials that cannot be achieved by traditional processing methods.

Laser Ablation Applications

Our laser ablation processing  allows us to customize selected materials and processes such as:

  • Balloons of various materials
  • Catheter Inflation Holes
  • Catheter Shaft OD Reduction
  • Wire Insulation Removal
  • Coated Stent Patterning
  • Guide Wires
  • Holes and Patterns
  • Implants
