The Laser Alone Can't Do It
LASTEC uses 2D / 3D micro laser welding, micro laser cutting, micro laser drilling and precision micro laser processing / machining in order to produce high-precision stainless steel, titanium or NiTi components and subassemblies for the medical market, from laser process development to fully automated laser-assisted production.
The ISO 9001 / EN 13485-certified company combines laser materials processing technology with other technologies, such as chemical machining and high-precision bending, to create and produce complex-shaped 3D thin-sheet assemblies (for example, featuring small sizes).
Burr-free high-precision medical parts and subassemblies
Besides its comprehensive selection of dedicated laser facilities, LASTEC runs a number of chemical and mechanical post-treatment processes on a complementary and supportive basis to the laser processes. It is mainly thanks to these auxiliary processes, along with self-imposed, tough quality control, that LASTEC is in a position to offer and maintain an extraordinary quality standard of absolutely burr-free and clean high-precision parts as well as subassemblies.
3D thin-sheet high-precision medical assemblies
In addition, the company combines its laser materials processing technology with other technologies, such as chemical machining and high-precision bending, to create and produce complex-shaped 3D thin-sheet high-precision assemblies; for example, featuring miniature sizes as shown in the fourth image of a piercing filter unit.
With its activity in the food processing domain, LASTEC has a strong foothold in metal filter technology and produces and sells proprietary products for that purpose.
Custom-made high-precision medical components and subassemblies
LASTEC also has an in-house capability to design and build laser-specific tooling and automation to cover the internal need linked to specific complete solutions for any custom-made high-precision component and / or subassembly.
LASTEC favours business opportunities in typical full-responsibility outsourcing partnerships for complete components and or subassemblies.
ISO-certified laser materials processing contract manufacturer
LASTEC was founded in 1995 and is a highly experienced, ISO 9001 and ISO 13485-certified laser materials processing contract manufacturer, with a predominant presence in the medical market. The company specialises in high-precision, high-speed 2D / 3D laser cutting and welding, starting from process development through to automated production, on a large variety of stainless steel, titanium and NiTi components for surgical instruments and implants.
A strong and highly skilled team of laser materials processing experts professionally maintains and operates a set of nine fully CNC-controlled high-precision machines featuring from three to five mostly linear motor-driven axes. Seven of the machines are fitted with different Nd:YAG lasers, one with a Rofin Sinar DC020 CO2 laser and one with a razor-sharp fibre-laser.
LASTEC, an innovation-driven, flexible laser production business operating in the field of precision industrial applications with its main focus on medical engineering, will be attending MEDTEC Europe in Stuttgart, Germany, which is being held 22-24 March 2011. Visit us at stand 6588 to
Real 3D high-speed laser cutting and welding is now a reality, and has been implemented and put to work at LASTEC's micro processing plant. Ingredients: Highly dynamic, laser-specifically designed, five-axis machine fitted with linear motors Siemens 840 D CNC
LASTEC, an ISO 13485-certified laser processing specialist, has developed a chain of processes that are mainly based on a dedicated micro-laser welding process to rapidly respond to individual needs for stainless-steel tubes with thin wall thicknesses in a diameter range of 10mm to 50mm. The comp
