Carrs have been laser welding surgical instruments and orthopaedic implants for nearly 10 years. Titanium and high grade stainless steel, key materials for in the medical field, are welded best with laser rather than conventional means. Laser welding has a reduced heat input, decreasing risk of distortion and alteration to essential properties of the material.
Precision welding coupled with 100% inspection and a nil failure record makes laser welding the clear choice in the medical industry.

Just one of the jobs undertaken this week at CWT. Thousands of straight springs looped and welded by hand keeping the shop floor busy. CWT can offer:- Mould and tool construction / repair High precision welds Protected weld seam (enclosed) Clean surface (no product particles) Medical part welding
Laser vs EB weldingNews
Laser welding and Electron Beam welding comparisons. Easy guide. The Disk or Fibre laser and the Electron Beam (EB) all make for good welding techniques and are both high power beam processes. They both produce neat repeatable welding procedures and due to the capital cost of the equipment are relatively expensive compared to conventional MIG […]

A client came to Carrs while trying to combat a medical condition called ‘Persistent Nystagmus’, an abnormal rhythmic oscillation of the eyes that is estimated to occur in 0.24% of the population. This effects a person’s ability to control eye movements, having a substantial impact on quality of life. CWT were able to successfully weld […]
