The Industrial Laser Solutions take on this story:

Recognizing that the medical device manufacturing industry market is moving away from pigmented parts, a partnership between Branson Ultrasonics and Sono-Tek will use Clearweld additive technology from Gentex Corp. to create a laser welding technology that meets medical device manufacturers' challenges for a clear-on-clear, particulate-free, precise weld joint.

The technology, called Simultaneous Through-Transmission Infrared (STTIr) laser welding, absorbs the laser energy and localized melt of the substrates to produce an almost-instant weld without particulates, flash, or cure time.
