NUBURU Enters Medical Device Market with Order from European Manufacturer


NUBURU, Inc. ("NUBURU" or the "Company") (NYSE American: BURU), a leading innovator in high-power and high-brightness industrial blue laser technology, today announced it has received a purchase order for its BlueScan solution from Blueacre Technology, a medical device manufacturer based in Dundalk, Ireland. The BL laser will be integrated by Blueacre with scan head optics to produce a versatile welding system for the manufacture of a range of precision medical devices.

The order is a natural extension of the Company's market focus in the electric vehicle industry, next-generation computers, consumer electronics and communication (3C) device manufacturing, and medical devices. The NUBURU blue laser addresses the need for a non-contact, high-speed process with low-to-no defects for manufacturing batteries and electric vehicles by replacing slower methods like ultrasonic and resistance welding, which represent multibillion-dollar equipment spent today due to their high cost of operations. It can work with copper, aluminum, titanium, and stainless steel, facilitate the manufacture of electric vehicle batteries, and address the tens of thousands of welds in an electric vehicle.

David Gillen, Managing Director and owner of Blueacre Technology commented: "Blue wavelength light is absorbed better by metals than infra-red sources. Blue, therefore, reduces the heat input into the material, reducing the risk of heat damage to critical medical components. We are excited to add blue lasers to our range of equipment."

Brian Knaley, CEO of NUBURU commented: "Our focus remains on providing world-class solutions to our customers' most challenging processes. These solutions are critical when welding disparate materials in a precision environment like medical device manufacturing. Blueacre will prove to be a world class partner in this important market segment of medical device manufacturing which is indicatively worth $6 billion according to AMPOWER 2022."

The purchase order for NUBURU's BlueScan solution by Blueacre Technology follows a successful Phase II contract award by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration ("NASA") through its Small Business Innovation Research ("SBIR") to advance blue laser power transmission technology as a unique solution to dramatically reduce the size and weight of the equipment needed for Lunar and Martian applications.
