Amada Miyachi America Announces New ML-5120A Direct Diode Laser Welder with Temperature Control Function

Monrovia, CA –  Amada Miyachi America Inc., a leading manufacturer of laser welding, marking, cutting and micro machining equipment and systems, announces the availability of the new ML-5120A 120-watt direct diode laser (DDL) welder for soldering and plastic welding. With low power consumption and high efficiency, DDL lasers feature localized heating that is ideal for small parts welding and manufacturing applications with space limitations. The ML-5120A is equipped with a temperature control function, which requires a separate dedicated unit to control laser output power.

The ML-5120A 120-watt DDL welder directly applies light emitted from laser diodes (LDs) for thermal processing– without passing through a lasing medium, such as Ytterbium (Yb)-doped fiber or Nd:YAG (neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet).DDL lasers are energy-saving devices that feature low power consumption and high efficiency. The equipment generates an invisible infrared wavelength of 915 nanometers.

The ML-5120A is optimal for plastic welding. Laser plastic welding is fast and environmentally friendly because the base materials are bonded together directly eliminating the need to wait for an adhesive to harden; this also facilitates easy recycling. The machine is also especially suitable for laser soldering. Its small spot diameter of 0.2 millimeters enables fine soldering in small areas as well as high-density, small-pitch areas. In addition, LD direct lasers can perform environmentally friendly lead-free metal soldering.

The new ML-5120A may be used with an optical fiber delivery system, including those that feature two energy-sharing delivery cables to improve productivity. The unit is also equipped with a power monitor as standard equipment.
