Removal of dross from laser cut nitinol tube



(-----) 2006

I have a small bore laser cut nitinol tube and I'm trying to identify the best way to remove the dross from laser cutting. The ID of my tube is .001" ^.01" and therefore an ID hone will be difficult.
Any advice appreciated.

From our experience in order to remove dross from surface of laser-cut nitinol stents you have to electropolish them for a long period of time, thus thinning the stents. That is why if we have stents with dross on the surface, we use special mechanical device to clean surface before electropolishing.
