Nitinol's unique super-elastic properties have made it an essential material in the medical device engineer's toolbox. Nitinol has become a staple in the cardiovascular, neurovascular, endovascular, peripheral vascular, orthopedic, spinal, urology and dental arenas with applications ranging from neurovascular stents and heart valve frames to orthopedic anchors and orthodontic archwires.

Over the last two decades countless advancements in medical device technologies have been made possible not only due to the application of Nitinol but also advancements in the state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies required to produce such devices. Laser manufacturing technologies have been at the forefront of these innovations. The non-contact, precision and low thermal input characteristics of laser processes have made lasers the technology of choice for welding, cutting/ablation and marking.

More specifically, the extreme thermal-sensitivity of Nitinol's microstructure and thermomechanical performance makes low heat input secondary processes a necessity. In this paper, state-of-the-art femtosecond laser machining processes will be presented with a specific focus on manufacturing Nitinol medical devices.
