Like other cutting technologies, laser cutting medical devices may have a few limitations. It can cut some definite angles in a number of orientations. It is also related to the cut quality, mechanical interference, and thickness of the part. For instance, some arthroscopic surgery blade designs need a cut angle of around 70 degrees.
The level wall thickness should not be more than 0.015-inch. When you increase the angle, the target spot will have an ellipse shape. The laser power concentration should be reduced.
The minimal power density reduction and the need to cut thicker parts can result in the process breakdown. The cutting nozzle can also affect the tube for higher angle cuts.
