Small metal bands attached to catheters used in minimally invasive medical procedures, marker bands are made of radiopaque materials that are highly visible under x-ray, allowing physicians to locate the catheter during procedures. And with a new ultrafast laser micromachining platform that integrates cutting, inspection and validation, these marker bands can be machined in a single high-speed micro-manufacturing process.

"Meanwhile, the products desired and required by people around the world are getting smaller and smaller – and the components that make these up must be even smaller"

The femtosecond solution

A major breakthrough in marker band manufacturing has taken place with the advent of commercial-grade ultrafast laser technology.
