Press Release


ROFIN shows laser systems and solutions for the whole range of applications in
medical device manufacturing at MEDICA 2009. On the ACIG booth in hall 13 (booth F55) the company shows the flexible laser welding solution Select and the compact laser marker EasyMark.

Select - Laser welding with optimum process validation

The ROFIN Laser Micro group has refined the current version of the welding laser Select. Enhanced joystick operation features and direct integration in the CNC control make the operation even easier and more comfortable. The Select works as an ergonomically optimized manual welding laser, joystick controlled  deposit welder or high-precision CNC system with 4 axes – seamless and with a continuous, innovative operating concept. With the micro welding option, welding spot diameters smaller than 0.1 mm can be achieved.

Reliable process validation is crucial for quality management in medical device production. The Select laser system with its CNC control system meets these requirements by ensuring highly repeatable processing and accuracy. All programs, which contain the welding parameters for the application, are protected against unauthorized changes and modification. Features such as Intelligent Pulse Managementâ„¢ guarantee excellent pulse stability, even with
smallest pulse energies providing reproducible results without power  fluctuation. The integrated FTP server allows saving and administration of all log file data on a central computer via an Ethernet connection. This includes the results of a laser power measurement before and after the welding process.

StarCut Tube with 4 axes and automatic tube loader

The StarCut Tube 2+2 offers up to 4 servo driven axes and can be used to create various cutting geometries, even off-axis cuts and it allows to process oval or rectangular tubes. With theses features, the StarCut Tube 2+2 opens a variety of application areas way beyond traditional stent cutting. Whereas stent cutting typically takes minutes other applications are frequently processed within seconds. Therefore, ROFIN offers now an automatic tube loader as an option. The system includes a magazine for up 50 tubes with a maximum length of 3 m. As finished workpieces and oddments can be deposited in separate trays, the StarCut Tube with automatic tube loader is well prepared for several hours of lights-out production.

EasyMark - Compact Desktop Marker
With a footprint of only 60 cm x 60 cm the EasyMark series is one of the most compact complete marking solutions on the market. Perfect biocompatible markings can be applied on metal and plastic surfaces in almost no time at all. The laser needs a common, single-phase power supply and does not require external cooling. The Visual LaserMarker software allows to design and transfer of the marking parameters like standard markings, consecutive numbering,
logos etc from the PC.
