Innovations on Parade – New Fiber Laser Welder at MD&M West

Posted by Barbara Kuntz on Tue, Feb 12, 2013 @ 03:08 PM

The Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) West exposition and conference is the place to be this week if you want to see the latest innovations in equipment and systems for medical device manufacturing. Despite all the doom and gloom you hear about the manufacturing sector, the medical device industry has been on fire for the last decade, and shows no signs of let up.  Innovations in technology are on the rise as everyone is looking to do things smaller, faster, and more reliably. I like to stroll the aisles looking for what’s 'just out.' If you do too, drop by Miyachi Unitek’s booth - #3051.

Tips for Laser Micro Welding Aluminum Alloys

Posted by Geoff Shannon on Tue, Feb 05, 2013 @ 10:21 AM

Aluminum alloys, are lightweight, possess good thermal and electrical conductivity, and are relatively inexpensive to work with.  Therefore, it’s no surprise that they are being used with increased frequency in product manufacturing applications ranging from batteries and electronics packaging, to automotive components and consumer goods packaging. Laser welding aluminum, however, is more difficult than welding steels for three key reasons: high reflectivity, surface oxide layer, and volatile alloying elements.

Green Lasers: the Key to High Volume Micro Welding of Conductive Parts

Posted by Geoff Shannon on Tue, Jan 08, 2013 @ 06:00 AM

Laser micro welding of conductive materials like copper has always been somewhat of a difficult proposition due to copper’s high reflectivity at the 1064nm wavelength. 532nm “green” laser welders however, remove this barrier, offering a truly viable method for laser micro welding copper (and other conductive materials) in high volume.
