Tegra Medical is experienced with processing a wide range of material to best suit your projects needs, including Nitinol, Platinum, Nickel, Titanium, Inconel, Hastelloy, 300 and 400 series Stainless Steels and many more. We use an array of world class laser systems to best service our customer needs for responsiveness, versatility and repeatable accuracy. Laser-Cutting_3 Laser-Cutting_4With 24 lasers and 24/6 operations, Tegra Medical also has the capacity in place to support prototyping needs as well as high volume production.

Our laser processing services have helped customers manufacture the following types of medical devices:

  • Orthopedic devices and assemblies.
  • Cardiovascular components and assemblies.
  • Minimally invasive devices for arthroscopy, laparoscopy, and ophthalmic surgery.

LASER CUTTING

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.

  • Tegra Medical supplies world class, burr-free laser cutting, in sheet stock from .001-.100 and thin wall tubing in all shapes and sizes.
  • Tegra Medical can provide any geometry pattern in flat stock and tubular materials.

LASER WELDING

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-Welding_1
  • Pure welds can be made without the addition of filler metal.
  • Spot sizes from .004 inch to .100 inch in a controlled environment, ensure quality and repeatability.
  • Tegra Medical specializes in welding fine wire and tubular components.
  • We're experts in welding Nitinol, Platinum and other materials that are often utilized in minimally invasive medical devices.
  • Laser welding creates a cosmetically pleasing weld joint. It often can take the place of multiple operations (post cleaning, buffing, grinding that most bonding processes need).

LASER DRILLING

Laser drilling is an ideal process when you need precision, speed and cost efficiencies.

  • Burr-free holes to .002 inch in light gauge metals and ceramics.
  • Readily processes flat, round, or shaped components with little or no fixturing required.

LASER ABRASION

Laser abrasion 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.

  • Cost-effective process that offers great reproducibility.
  • Controlled process that can be validated.
  • Easily customized to meet your specific requirements.

LASER MARKING

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.

  • Laser marking can withstand passivation and other cleaning processes.
  • Laser marking is a non-contact, permanent marking solution with little heat input, discoloration or oxidation.
  • Easily customized to meet your specific requirements.
  • Laser marking is the perfect finishing touch to your medical device needs. Lot numbers, logos and device descriptions can be added to a finished device for very little added cost.
