Textured hip joint

Hip, shoulder and knee implants are complex devices that have many critical features. Manufacturers face many challenges in order to balance the product's functional requirements, cost and risk. By using our Laser texturing solutions, customers can:

  • Have multiple different textures on the same device in a single set-up, no masking required
  • Create special surfaces, potentially with anti-bacterial properties
  • Integrate UDI and anti-counterfeiting measures in the same setup as texturing
