Medical device contract manufacturer Biomerics (Salt Lake City, UT) has created an Advanced Laser division that will specialize in laser welding, cutting, ablating, and marking metal and plastic materials within the precision medical device market.

The new division will use Nd:YAG lasers, fiber lasers, and ultrafast laser technologies, as well as offer a portfolio of secondary processes that include cleaning, passivation, heat setting, and electropolishing, allowing the company to provide beginning-to-end solutions to the precision medical device market.
