Medical device manufacturing – get part functionality with high yield

Posted by Barbara Kuntz on Mon, Jul 27, 2015 @ 11:37 AM

Who doesn’t want to have their cake and eat it too? Or, in the case of medical device manufacturing, get a tremendous amount of part functionality with high yield?

If leveraging technology and process knowledge to enable your current and future medical device production needs is your kind of cake, consider attending the upcoming FREE symposium "Medical Device Manufacturing – Enable Part Functionality with High Yield," presented by Amada Miyachi America's experts  in San Jose, Costa Rica on August 11 and 12, 2015 (presentations in Spanish and English respectively). Presentations will be focusing on medical device manufacturing using laser technology and resistance spot welding.

Gather with other design engineers, manufacturing engineers and engineering managers to learn about micro welding source selection, material selection and part design, process development for validation, and UDI laser marking for medical devices. Also on the agenda are discussions on laser cutting and laser micromachining of plastics and metals.

Among other topics, the seminar is going to include recommendations on designing parts for manufacturability and the best methods for processing – for example: what are the best materials for welding? Viability of plastic welding? And how best to design the part geometry to maximize manufacturability.  Also, how new technologies can enable part design innovation, like new metals joining production methods made possible by the availability of “green light” (532nm) pulsed welding lasers and welding dissimilar materials with fiber lasers.

Another focus will be on ensuring the highest level of weld quality. We’ll touch upon the latest resistance weld monitoring technology, which provides precision real-time dynamic measurement of all welding variables. The new technology responds to the increased emphasis on accountability, offering process development, production monitoring, data collection, and analysis tools to support ISO, GMP and TQM requirements.

Other areas to be covered include precision cutting of thin metal tubular structures; texturing metal parts; wire stripping, micromachining with ultrafast lasers, and using fiber laser marking for passivation and corrosion-resistant marking.

In addition to learning all about the latest techniques and developments in medical device manufacturing using laser welding, resistance welding, laser cutting, and laser micromachining technologies, there will be plenty of time to discuss your specific applications with our engineers – be sure to bring samples!
