DNE Laser is a laser company that entered into the medical device processing industry earlier in China. The DNE laser cutting machine is widely used by medical device processing companies because of its faster, more efficient, more stable and stronger applicability.
As we all know, medical devices have higher requirements for processing equipment due to their precision, stability, safety, and purity. In the process of metal medical equipment processing, the traditional sheet metal mechanical cutting processing mode has great defects in terms of accuracy, safety and controllability. Its replacement by fiber laser cutting is an inevitable development of the industry.
Meeting medical safety needs
First of all, laser cutting meets the requirements of medical professional safety, purity, and finish. Fiber laser cutting is to use a high-power density laser beam to scan the surface of the material, heating the material from thousands to ten thousands of degrees Celsius in a very short time, to melt or vaporize the material, and then use high-pressure gas to remove the molten or vaporized material from the slit to achieve the purpose of cutting materials. This extremely high-temperature cutting prevents the possibility of secondary contamination during the processing of the equipment; in addition, the cut surface finish of the processed material is very good, which can meet the requirements of one-time molding, avoid secondary or multiple reprocessing after the material is molded , causing time and material loss.
Meet the requirements of precision manufacturing
Secondly, in terms of the workpiece itself, medical devices are quite different from other mechanical parts. It requires very high precision, and the laser cutting machine satisfies these processing requirements well when performing equipment processing and cutting.
In addition, the slit produced by laser cutting machine is very narrow, which ensures the precision of the workpiece.
Non-contact flexible cutting
The production and processing process of laser cutting is a non-contact processing, the laser cutting head will not contact the surface of the processed material, and the workpiece will not be scratched. For medical devices, surface smoothness is the most basic requirement. If the surface polishing treatment of the products can be minimized during the processing, the production efficiency will be greatly improved.
Meet fast processing requirements
The laser cutting machine adopts a humanized control interface, which is easy to operate and precise to control. It can cut products of different shapes and maximize the utilization of materials; after the product drawing is formed, it can quickly cut the special and scarce medical equipment Process, get the new product in the shortest time, and meet the emergency needs of special medical equipment.
