Medical equipment plays an important role in our lives. It is related to life, health and safety. With the increase of people's health awareness, household medical devices such as thermometers, blood pressure monitors, blood glucose meters, etc., have gradually become popular. The production of medical equipment is gradually increasing every year.
The emergence of fiber laser cutting machines provides high-quality parts for the precision manufacturing of medical devices, and escorts people's lives, health, and safety from the source, and has made a qualitative leap in quality, productivity, and research and development speed.
So, what are the advantages of laser cutting machine application solutions in the medical instrument industry? Our technical engineers will answer for you.
Analysis of the advantages of laser cutting machine application solutions in the medical instrument industry:
Traditional processing machinery for sheet metal cutting has defects in accuracy, safety, and controllability for the production of metal medical devices. Due to the special environment in which medical devices are used, there are special requirements for the precision, safety, finish, and sanitary conditions of the cutting process while manufacturing medical devices，which requires strict requirements on the manufacturer’s production conditions from the source. The replacement of traditional processing methods by fiber laser cutting machines is an inevitable trend in the development of the industry.
The cutting process of fiber laser cutting machine is to use a high-power density laser beam to scan the surface of the material, and heat the material to thousands to tens of thousands of degrees Celsius in a very short time to melt or vaporize the material, and then use high-pressure gas to blow the molten or vaporized material away from the slit, finally achieving the purpose of cutting the material. Laser cutting machines can meet the requirements of precision, safety, smoothness, and other aspects of medical devices.
The extremely high-temperature cutting of the fiber laser cutting machine can ensure that the equipment will not be secondly contaminated during the processing. The cut surface finish of the processing material is very good, and the processing material can be molded at one time, which avoids the second or multiple reprocessing after the material is molded and time and material loss. Medical equipment is related to life, health, and safety, so the requirements in all aspects are very strict, which requires high accuracy with no deviations. The laser cutting machine can meet the processing requirements very well when processing and cutting medical equipment.
The slit produced by the fiber laser cutting machine is very narrow. The laser beam is focused into a small spot so that the focal point can reach a high power density. The material is quickly heated to the degree of vaporization and evaporates to form a hole. With the relative linear movement of the light beam and the material, the hole continuously forms a slit with a very narrow width. The width of the slit is generally 0.10-0.20mm. The extremely small cutting seam ensures the high precision of the cutting.
The production and processing process of the laser cutting machine is non-contact processing, the laser cutting head will not contact the surface of the processing material, and there will be no scratches on the workpiece. For medical devices, surface smoothness is the most basic requirement. If the surface sanding process of the device products can be minimized during the processing process, the production efficiency will be greatly improved.
