Resonetics acquires Aduro Laser

Laser micro manufacturing firm Resonetics has acquired Aduro Laser, a laser processing firm that produces tubular components for the medical device industry. The takeover will enable Resonetics to provide additional resources and equipment to expand the capacity of Aduro’s business model.

Aduro’s technology has enabled it to shorten the processing times of tubular components dramatically, enabling its customers to iterate rapidly and reduce time to market. With its focus on efficiency and eliminating waste, the company also makes the broader adoption of interrupted spiral cut tubing economically viable.

With the acquisition, Resonetics will market ‘Prime Laser Cut Tubing’, a solution for quick turn and high volume laser cut tubing that can be used extensively in catheter delivery systems, Nitinol implants and single-use instruments. The firm will also expand Aduro’s capacity with a new facility, additional equipment and more engineering resources.

‘Joining forces with Resonetics provides additional resources and synergies to provide solutions to our customers on a larger scale,’ commented Grayson Beck, co-founder and CEO of Aduro Laser.

Following the takeover Aduro Laser will change its name to Resonetics, with Beck and Demian Backs, vice president of Aduro, assuming key leadership roles in the combined company.

‘We are very excited to partner with Grayson Beck and Demian Backs, who have created raving fans with Aduro’s disruptive business model,’ said Tom Burns, CEO of Resonetics. ‘We share a similar culture with an emphasis on innovation, speed and customer satisfaction. Prime Laser Cut Tubing is already being adopted by leading companies in structural heart, peripheral vascular and minimally invasive surgery markets.’
