Norman Noble, Inc. continues to lead through innovation with Noble S.T.E.A.L.T.H. (System To Enable Ablation Laser Technology Haz-free). This athermal laser machining process was developed to create highly precise features in any material, such as bioabsorbable polymers, shape memory metals and other exotic alloys without producing any heat affected zone (HAZ). The new process supports Norman Noble’s customers’ technically advancing manufacturing requirements in the medical and aerospace industries. Noble S.T.E.A.L.T.H. is an ultrashort pulse (USP) laser that does not generate any heat affected zone (HAZ). It can reduce, and in some cases, eliminate costly deburring & post-processing steps, increasing product quality and yield.
