In-house research on medical devices

Most research and prototyping are done by outsourced third party companies as many lack the equipment to do it in-house. However, with LPKF's range of prototyping equipment, in-house research has never been easier! Whether it is a educational, medical or research institute, or simply an R&D department for a mass-production company, LPKF has a machine that suits your production needs.

Benefits of In-house Laser Processing

Flexibility and Autonomy

Incorporating in-house laser systems enhances the ability to quickly experiment with various materials or layouts, providing you complete control over your project and the freedom to prove your concept promptly. You can initiate the next phase of your project independently, without relying on external service providers or navigating internal order processes.

Safe and Fully Chemical-free

The laser systems are instantly available without any setup time, and the process does not require any chemicals. This means that biocompatible materials or flexible electronic sensors designed for contact with human skin will not be subjected to any chemical contaminants.

Reproducible and Scalable

It uses ultrashort pulse lasers, which guarantee consistently high-quality surface features. The laser etching achieves unmatched quality with smooth sidewalls, sharp edges, and tight radii. Processing channels and cutouts in solid or brittle materials is easily done without causing damage or visible cracks. The capability to handle small production runs with reliable, high quality ensures that new applications go through multiple cycles of building, testing, and improvement. This not only accelerates the product to market but also ensures robust performance in the field.

LPKF Laser Systems


A zero contact UV laser system that is easy to install and operate, the LPKF ProtoLaser U4 can structure or cut a wide variety of materials with high precise focusing and exact control of processing positions. 


The LPKF ProtoLaser R4 operates with short pico-second laser pulses, allowing for highly precise structuring of sensitive substrates or cutting of hardened substrates. With practically zero heat transfer, the R4 is best suited for temperature sensitive materials.
