Laser Welding

We are experts in using laser welding to join metals together with precision and low-heat input to create complex components and subassemblies for medical devices. Our deep process knowledge and state-of-the-art equipment allow us to solve complex manufacturing problems and perform laser welding at a micro-scale. In addition to our decades of in-house experience, we also invest significantly in R&D projects to continually advance our capabilities. Our Lightspeed Lab process experts can help you take advantage of our laser welding technology with industry-leading prototype solutions, design feedback, and manufacturing process development. When your design is ready for production, we have a standardized system to validate the process, experience, and resources to scale quickly to meet your production demands.
