Laser Wire Stripping Machines

The stripping of wire insulation or coatings in order to provide electrical contact points for cardiac rhythm management, neuromodulation devices, or other downstream manufacturing processes is a common requirement in the medical device manufacturing industry. Moving from manual intensive processes to an automatic wire stripping machine offers great gains in productivity and quality.

Laser stripping machines are a fast and efficient method for removing partial or full sections of materials and tapering edges. The laser is well suited for material removal as required for the stripping of outer layers of polymers from small diameter wires for many medical device applications. The laser offers a process that is non contact, very repeatable, can selectively remove layers, can selectively remove areas and is easily automated. The laser transforms a key step in the manufacturing process to a lean operat...
