Expertise in managing short pulsed laser technologies allows Niklaus LNI SA to texturize surfaces including sand or bead blasting, black markings, polishing without mechanical contact with the parts. This is complements the electrochemical processing (anodizing, electropolishing, passivation).
Niklaus LNI SA has further reduced risks of cross contamination by eliminating when possible the need for masking, bead or sand blasting for the desired effects eg partial treatment or double treatment.
It has also tackled the problem of laser marking contrast loss after passivation of metallic medical devices.
Femto, nano and pico laser technologies are applied for each type of material to create these effects with no physical contact to the parts. These solutions also do not alter the nature of the material other than creating the desired texturing effects through ablation.
Combined with the expertise in anodization of aluminum, tantalum and titanium OEM's have a much higher degree of freedom for their products.
Niklaus LNI SA provides these qualified services today for its customers. In addition, Niklaus provides, electropolishing, passivation and plating (Gold, Palladium, Silver) for medical devices of all types.
Niklaus LNI SA co-founded Swiss High Tech manufacturing. This group allows for complete solutions from extrusion, machining, finishing and engraving of medical devices.
