The U.S. Patent Office has granted Nashua-based Resonetics a new patent that aims at addressing the challenges posed by micromachining of medical devices.
Currently, in order to present the work piece to the ablating laser beam, the part must be rotated and translated several times with high precision. The new patent, “Laser Machining System and Method for Machining
Three-Dimensional Objects from a Plurality of Directions,” allows the user to switch quickly from one location on a work piece to another by moving the laser beam instead of rotating the work piece. The new method need allows the part to be held steady in one position, making it simpler, lighter and more economical, said the company.
