Products Oxidation flask
The 0.1 mm holes in this oxydation flask are drilled using laser cutting. The operation takes only few seconds.

To avoid a conical shape the holes are drilled in small steps while the flask is rotated.

This flask is used in a medical heart-lung machine for oxidizing blood. The oxygen passes through the small holes which, on the contrary, are too narrow for the blood.
