Hygiene is, of course, a key factor in the medical industry. In the so called Cleanrooms no dust or other moist is allowed. The benefit of laser cleaning in this case, is the fact that it creates very little waste, and that the waste can be carried away in a controlled manner.
Another application for laser cleaning in the medical industry is the cleaning of large tanks. These tanks are usually filled with chemical materials, but need to be cleaned once in a while.
The advangtage of laser cleaning is the fact that the walls of the tanks are not affected by the laser. The roughness stays the same, while the chemical residue is completely removed.
A third application in the medical industry can be found in marking the medical tools. Laser marking is fast and durable, thus making it an excellent solution for this application.
