Hyper-Focused Design for Medical Device Manufacturing
As former Medical Device Professionals, we understand the rigorous requirements of the Industry. Like many of our current customers, we found ourselves searching the market for that perfect system. A machine that was built for the medical manufacturing niche, a system flexible enough to support quick part change-overs, but robust enough to withstand the demands of long term production. A machine easy enough for a technician to operate, yet powerful enough to enable a power user to develop and create parts that were not previously possible. Simply put, there were no commercially available solutions did not require immediate rework or customization. This is how the Medicut PRO Series Laser Workstation platform was born, a highly configurable standard platform piece of engineering, designed for you...the medical manufacturer.

We prioritize providing our customers with the optimal solution for their needs, rather than upselling on unnecessary features. Our engineers are available to consult with you regarding your specific application requirements. At Alpine, we offer a variety of motion packages and options to meet your needs. It is crucial to choose the right package for your application, as overloading a machine with unnecessary options can limit its dynamic performance. Opting for a machine that fits 95% of your requirements instead of 100% can actually result in higher ROI and cycle times.
Our product family offers highly-engineered machine base platforms with configurable standard options that enable us to stock ~90% of the components required to build your machine. Unlike the typical industry lead times, which can approach one year, our current lead times are significantly better than our competitors'. We are continuously working to improve our inventory measures to achieve our goal of shipping a machine in under 12 weeks
We have conducted extensive benchmarking on customer parts using our platform against every commercially available machine, comparing as-cut quality to existing processes and cycle times. Our results have been unparalleled thus far. We typically achieve 2-5X cycle time improvement while maintaining or enhancing cut quality. Many customers are surprised to learn that their current machines from leading manufacturers are not operating at their commanded feed rates. Implementing our easy-to-use, modular quick change tooling platform and choosing the correct system configuration can result in fast ROI and significant increases in manufacturing output. Our high customer retention rate attests to the outstanding performance of our systems
Our purpose-built medical manufacturing laser platform is designed with pre-configured standard options that are carefully engineered to minimize the need for staffing large teams of engineers, technicians, and admins.
