Abstract

See full text

An apparatus and method for laser stripping coated cables for endocardial defibrillation leads comprising a jig for holding at least one insulated wire, the jig having a base plate, a linear stripping area on the plate, a first clasp mounted on the plate for holding a first end of the wire, at least two primary pins mounted on the plate on a first side of the linear stripping area, at least one secondary pin mounted on the plate on a second side of the linear stripping area, and a second clasp mounted on the plate for holding a second end of the wire; and a laser effective to remove insulation from the insulated wire, the laser being mounted to effectively remove insulation in the linear stripping area.
