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.
