Miyachi Europe showcases versatile laser welding and resistance welding equipment at Medtec Europe

Amada Miyachi Europe announces that it will highlight a range of laser and resistance welding equipment ideal for the medical industry at Medtec Europe, to be held 12-14 April, 2016, at Messe Stuttgart, in Baden-Württemberg, Germany.


On display will be the Jupiter Fiber Laser Welding System, ideal for spot welding surgical tools and seam welding implantable devices, as well as a vacuum chamber module that can be integrated into a pacemaker welding system. Also to be showcased is the Series 320 low force electronic weld head, a resistance spot welding head ideal for medical applications requiring precise position and force control.

The MIYACHI EAPRO Jupiter Fiber Laser Welding System on display is designed for fast, accurate and reliable welding on all kinds of surgical tools and medical devices, including hearing aids, catheters and brachyseeds. The fiber laser’s low power level and high beam quality allows power up to 500W to be fired into 10 or 20 micron cores, resulting in very small weld spots. Depending on the application, the system can also be equipped with several types of lasers and optics to suit the speed and accuracy required for medical applications.

Also on display is a vacuum chamber module specially designed for laser welding packages under vacuum or shielded atmosphere. This shielded atmosphere module for laser welding systems can be integrated into a full-sized glovebox. It is designed to fit inside the next generation of NOVA6 CNC Laser Welding Workstations, which are used for manufacturing pacemaker leads, medical implants, and sensors.

The all-new Series 320 electronic weld heads on display are high precision low force heads designed specifically for applications requiring precise position and force control. The versatile resistance spot welding head has features that meet the process demands of microelectronics manufacturing, including inline and offset opposed electrode configurations and the ability to set displacement limits and use the weld-to-displacement feature to stop the weld precisely during collapse. It is also robust enough to endure industrial requirements and environments.
