Miyachi Unitek to Exhibit at MD&M Texas

MONROVIA, CA – Miyachi Unitek Corporation, a leading manufacturer of welding equipment and laser processing systems, announces it will showcase its latest welding, cutting and marking technologies at the Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) Texas exposition and conference, to be held March 14-15, 2012at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Texas, booth #412.

Miyachi Unitek will be displaying and demonstrating a variety of equipment ideal for the medical manufacturing market, including a fiber laser marking system, and both laser and resistance micro welding systems. Also on display will be the Advanced Data Analysis Monitor (ADAM) weld monitor, and weld heads that offer stable, repeatable electrode force for a wide range of medical market resistance welding applications.

Miyachi Unitek will be demonstrating its LMF-2000 Fiber Laser Marker, which produces small characters on a wide array of materials and is ideal for marking plastics used in the medical and packaging industries. Fiber laser markers also offer extremely controlled metals marking, which results in the most reliable corrosion-resistant marking for medical materials. “Miyachi Unitek’s technology provides fast, reliable and corrosion resistant marking of medical devices,” said Jack Lantz, president and CEO of Miyachi Unitek Corporation. “We have significant experience in the medical device industry and are eager to help manufacturers achieve UDI compliance.”

Conference attendees looking for the best technology for small component welding can view a demonstration of Miyachi Unitek’s LF Series Fiber Laser Micro Welding System, which offers extremely precise control and integration of the laser, tooling, and motion. The LF Series can produce focused spot sizes down to 10 microns, while maintaining control of pulse width and peak power to enable fine micro welding.

For micro-miniature resistance spot welding, Miyachi Unitek will be demonstrating its UB25 linear DC micro welder (successor to the Unibond II), which provides unsurpassed levels of control. The UB25 is ideal for smaller applications that require closed-loop feedback control and fast response times. Safety-critical applications such as those found in the medical markets will benefit from the UB25’s precision low energy control.

In addition, Miyachi Unitek will exhibit its 70 Series Servo-Motor Driven 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 medical market resistance welding applications, including such applications as pacemaker interconnects. On display will be model UB71, featuring an opposed head type. The UB71’s programmable speed and positions, controlled servo motor actuation that eliminates overforce, and “Soft Touch” part clamping, make it ideal for the medical market.

Representing the very latest technology in resistance weld monitoring, Miyachi Unitek’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.
