Resonetics said today it is opening a laser micro-manufacturing facility in Plymouth, Minn.
The new 9,000 sq. ft facility will include a range of laser workstations which incorporate various wavelengths , as well as a Class 8 cleanroom option and a Lightspeed ADLTM environment, the company said.
“The Minneapolis/St. Paul area is one of the largest medical device clusters in the world. We are excited to bring our leading edge services to this important market. We expect to be operational in the fourth quarter of this year,” CEO Tom Burns said in a press release.
Laser welding, cutting and ablation process experts will operate on site at the new facility, which will receive additional support from the company’s Boston and Dayton facilities.
“Establishing an operation in Minnesota is important for Resonetics. It allows us to work closely with our customers’ development engineers to drive new products through compressed launch schedules. We share a passion with our customers for innovating and solving tough challenges. We look forward to providing great service from our newest lab,” chief technical officer Kevin Hartke said in prepared remarks.
