Palmaz Scientific, Spectra-Physics, and Innovative Laser Technologies offer femtosecond laser micromachining of next-generation implantable medical devices. With Spectra-Physics’ femtosecond lasers and ILT’s precision machining systems, Palmaz Scientific has demonstrated the fabrication of implantable stents with esurface nanotechnologies for biocompatibility.
Palmaz Scientific fabricated the next-generation implantable stents using ILT’s VersaSTC system with a Spectra-Physics Spirit industrial femtosecond laser. The ILT VersaSTC system was developed for precision laser processing of small tubes (under 25mm diameter) utilizing ILT’s HMI2200 System Controller. The Spectra-Physics Spirit laser delivers femtosecond pulses with beam characteristics and programmable repetition rates for optimal precision, cold micromachining with no heat-affected zone or collateral damage.
