Laser Welding in Medical Technology

Non-Porous and Smooth Surfaces

Laser welding devices are indispensable production tools for the manufacture of medical technology components made of titanium or various stainless steels.
The products must meet the highest quality standards and feature flawless surfaces.

Whether for the joining of implant systems or the manufacture of endoscopes or surgical instruments –
the advantages of laser welding are apparent everywhere.

Your benefits at a glance:

  • Non-porous, smooth surfaces suitable for high-temperature sterilization
  • Small welding seams with high strength
  • Gas-tight closure of the joint
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Same biocompatibility as the base material 

Another advantage is that the welds can be implemented with or without filler material, depending on the properties of the part.
The absence of pores, biocompatibility, or strength are not affected by this. Laser welding creates only a very small heat-affected zone, which
does not impact even the most sensitive components.
