Cardiac Rhythm Devices

In the manufacture of pacemakers and defibrillators, plasma is used in the header assembly, in creating the electronics package, cleaning the can post laser welding, and treatment of the external electronic leads. Plasma cleans mold release and activates the surface of pacemaker and defibrillator headers to improve the bond between the header and can. It can also be used to remove titanium oxide from laser welding processes. It is a superior final cleaning step that helps improve the biocompatibility and bondability of many medical product or components.
