Surgical laser marks go wrong

Surgical laser marking-etching can be extremely complex

We received a call from an SPD manager asking us to fix some surgical laser marks done no long ago by an industrial laser provider.

After a few days, we received the sets and all the marks were showing strong residues of rust on the surgical's instrument marks.
We were able to delete the marks, rebuild the passive layer and place new data matrix marks on these surgical instruments. (Video Here)
This is a chilly reminder that a wrong laser set up, wrong laser and the lack of knowledge on surgical metals and their behavior under the laser, can bring wrong marking results on surgical instruments been costly for the hospital and painful for your ORs.
