Amada Miyachi America has announced
a systemwide upgrade to its Sigma Laser
Stent and Tube Cutter, which can be configured with either microsecond fiber or
femtosecond lasers. Featuring three or four
axes of motion, wet and dry cutting, an automated tube loader option, and easy access to subassemblies, the updated system
can cut stents and tubes with diameters
from 0.2 to 25 mm. The operator-friendly
