Amada Miyachi America to Showcase Industry-Leading Laser and Resistance Welding and Monitoring Technology at Mfg4 2016

Monrovia, CA – Amada Miyachi America Inc., a leading manufacturer of welding, marking, cutting, sealing, and bonding technology, will be highlighting its Delta laser welding system, LMWS laser processing workstation, and MAWA Pulsed Micro TIG welder in booth #1943 at Mfg4 2016, taking place May 3-5, 2016, in Hartford, Connecticut. Also to be showcased is the UB29 linear DC micro welder, AF8500 hermetic sealing system, and Advanced Data Analysis Monitor (ADAM).

Amada Miyachi America’s Delta Series laser welding systems are flexible, low cost, lean manufacturing-ready Class I environments for precision laser spot and laser seam welding. The Delta system can be integrated with any Amada Miyachi America laser welder, and will be displayed at the Mfg4 show with the LW25A laser welder. LW25A is a 25 watt welder designed specifically to meet the stringent demands of precision welding applications as found in the production of medical, automotive, electronic, and aerospace components, as well as in a broad range of other industrial applications.

Specifically designed for benchtop operation in a lean manufacturing environment, the versatile and easily configurable LMWS low-cost laser processing workstation, which will also be highlighted at the show, offers laser marking of metals and plastics, engraving of metals, cutting and drilling of thin sheets of metal, and welding of thin foils. This compact, CDRH Class I benchtop system features  a fresh industrial design, 270 degrees of workspace, a tooling plate drilled for flexible workpiece mounting, motorized Z axis, a large viewing window, and an optional rotary stage.

Visitors to the booth can also see the recently updated MAWA Pulsed Micro TIG welder, which is the perfect solution for welding small coils and terminals, bus bars, and covered wires as found in the automotive, medical, battery and electronics industries. The updated welder features a higher level of control than competitive models, providing more consistent and reliable welds. Durable and reliable, the high performance MAWA-300A micro TIG welding power supply features between 30 and 300 amps of output power, and can weld conductive metals and dissimilar materials. It features a monitoring function that can readily identify process errors by checking the upper and lower limits of the current as well as the waveform envelope.

The industry-leading UB29 linear DC micro welder being showcased offers precision control for micro-miniature resistance welding. The UB29 is a perfect choice for wire assemblies, sensors, connectors, squibs, catheters, orthodontic appliances, pacemakers, implantable hearing devices, and battery packs.

The Series 320 high precision, low force electronic weld head on display is designed specifically for applications requiring precise position and force control. Featuring inline and offset opposed electrode configurations and exceptionally accurate force and position parameters, users can set displacement limits and use weld-to-displacement feature to stop the weld precisely during collapse. The user friendly I/O offers four programmable relay outputs.

Representing the very latest technology in resistance weld monitoring, Amada Miyachi America’s ADAM monitors what happens during the weld, as well as what happens before the weld is triggered, offering a 360-degree view of the process. Sophisticated SPC capabilities, including an 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 also supports ISO, GMP and TQM requirements.

The AF8500 Hermetic Sealing System is flexible enough to meet the ever-increasing demands of lid placement and seam sealing applications in the optoelectronic packaging industry. It can be configured either as a stand-alone unit or as part of a fully integrated automated manufacturing line. The computer-controlled precision tacking and seam-sealing mechanism is combined with a high frequency inverter welding power supply and an optional high-resolution vision system to provide a robust and repeatable process.  The system can also be incorporated into an atmospheric enclosure to provide an integrated seam sealing glovebox system, ensuring high-yield hermetic sealing results.
