Tegra Medical's laser cutting is performed with CNC precision positioning systems manned by skilled technicians (many with 10 plus years of experience), who assure precision and repeatability with each and every job.
When you're dealing with dissimilar metals, heat-sensitive assemblies, or conditions where thermal distortion is a concern, laser welding is a good choice. Laser welding is a process that is replacing other methods of bonding (gluing, soldering, crimping, TIG welding, resistance welding, etc.) Laser welding is a repeatable process that can be statistically proven and easily validated.
Laser drilling is an ideal process when you need precision, speed and cost efficiencies.
Laser ablating is a terrific alternative to grit blasting hypotubes or wires prior to insert molding, spin welding and other applications that require surface disruption. For example, it is an excellent way to bond metal to plastic. An infinite variety of patterns/textures can be developed.
Laser marking is best suited for permanently marking logos, lot numbers, etc. for tracking and identification. It's an ideal process for round, flat or tubular components.
