Norman Noble (Highland Heights, OH) offers Noble UltraLightTM, an athermal laser machining process designed to create precise features in materials such as bioabsorbable polymers, shape memory metals, and other exotic alloys without producing any heat affected zone (HAZ). This ultrashort pulse (USP) laser enables the machining of features in materials used to manufacture vascular stents with minimal variability and without the introduction of heat inherent in traditional thermal laser manufacturing. Applications include drug delivery systems, catheter devices, valves, and needles.
