Laser welding machines are used to connect plastic tubing and ideal for welding of balloon catheters. Laser technology guarantees there is no heat effect on the balloon making it the superior technology for balloon bonding applications. The laser enables customers to minimize the length of the balloon leg because the laser can be accurately focused near the balloon without any risk for the balloon seeing heat that would cause damage or pin-holes. Some applications have balloons legs as small as 0.5mm in length and still capable of achieving 24 Bar rated burst pressure. Laser bonder allows for distal bonding and forming of the tip in a single step process. The same laser can be used for both the proximal and distal bonds.
