Miyachi Unitek to Attend Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) Chicago Miyachi Unitek Corporation, a leading manufacturer of welding equipment and laser processing systems, announces it will attend the Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) Chicago tradeshow to be held September 20-22 at McCormick Place North in Chicago, Illinois. Miyachi will showcase its laser marking and resistance welding technology to the medical device marketplace in booth #2370. Miyachi will feature its UV (ultra violet) laser marking system, capable of producing high quality marks on plastic and metals. UV lasers can produce small characters on a wide array of materials and are ideal for marking plastics used in the medical and packaging industries. UV laser markers also offer extremely controlled metals marking, which results in the most reliable corrosion-resistant marking for medical and aerospace materials. “Miyachi’s technology provides fast, reliable and corrosion resistant marking of medical devices,” said Jack Lantz, president and CEO at Miyachi Unitek Corporation. “We have significant experience in the medical device industry and are eager to help manufacturers achieve UID compliance.” Miyachi will also be showcasing the UB25 linear DC welder, which provides unsurpassed levels of control for micro-miniature resistance welding. The UB25 is ideal for smaller applications where closed-loop feedback control and fast response times are required. Safety-critical applications such as those found in the medical markets will benefit from UB25’s precision low energy control. In addition, Miyachi will exhibit its 70 series weld heads, which are designed for use in either automation or benchtop welding. These weld heads offer stable, repeatable electrode force for a wide range of resistance welding applications. Representing the very latest technology in resistance weld monitoring, Miyachi’s Advanced Data Analysis Monitor (ADAM) will also be on display. ADAM not only monitors what happens during the weld, but also what happens before the weld is triggered, offering a 360-degree view of the process. Sophisticated SPC capabilities such as the integrated database and Minitab 15® statistical software enable customers to analyze and collect data. Other key features include current, voltage, power, resistance, force and cover gas flow monitoring; high resolution sensors; pre-and post-trigger viewing; envelope limits; and Ethernet communications capability. ADAM offers information to support ISO, GMP and TQM requirements. For more information on Miyachi’s technology for the medical device market, please visit booth #2370 at MD&M.
