Laser Cut Tubing

Industry Leading Prototype Solutions

The Resonetics Lightspeed Lab is a group of engineers and technicians deploying dedicated, state-of-the-art equipment to provide quick-turn prototyping solutions for the medical device and advanced diagnostic markets. Each Lightspeed Lab has technology expertise and develops manufacturing processes that can easily scale to high-volume production, which enables our customers to develop and launch products in record time.

Experts in Laser Cut Tubing

Our proprietary PRIME Laser Cut TubingTM is the fastest hypotube cutting solution in the industry. We have designed and built proprietary laser processing systems optimized for laser cutting metal hypotubes with high speed and precision. Partner with our Lightspeed Lab experts to convert your functional catheter or component requirements into a laser cut pattern that will optimize your device performance and be cost-effective in volume manufacturing. Our team will speed up your development timeline with responsive design feedback, rapid quotes, and quick-turn prototype parts.

The PRIME Laser Cutting Process

PRIME Laser Cut Tubing™ is a disruptive technology that offers new design options for advanced catheter delivery systems. Interventional devices such as flexible catheter shafts and delivery system components demand custom flexibility to navigate the vascular system. Laser cutting enables the optimized fabrication of hypotubes to match a device’s mechanical performance with the specific path it will travel through the anatomy. The PRIME Laser Cut Tubing™ Lightspeed Lab team works with your product development engineers to define the needs of your catheter delivery system, including critical functions like torque transfer, radius of curvature, and tensile strength. We use this information to determine the right type of laser cut patterns that will enable the device’s functional performance.

Laser Cut Pattern Design Support

The PRIME Laser Cut Tubing™ Lightspeed Lab team brings process expertise, custom laser cutting equipment, and proprietary software to enable your next complex catheter or delivery system. When recommending a laser cut pattern, we maximize manufacturing efficiency, ensuring you receive the most accurate prototypes as quickly as possible. Customers seeking an advanced catheter delivery system can combine various laser cut patterns (see below) with our Medelec stainless steel tubing for a smart alternative to conventional, complex braided catheter systems. We also offer complete catheter design assistance through our AGILE Product Development team.
