High production rate + high yield = industrial process success. Understanding both the process requirements and production environment allows companies to optimize their production rates resulting in lower cost per part and higher profit.
AMADA WELD TECH offers educational webinars on a quarterly basis. Topics include equipment selection, process optimization, applications and more. While it's best to attend these events live, we know that isn't always possible. So we've made our recordings available to you here, to watch at your leisure.
Lasers are frequently used in medical device manufacturing. This includes processes like laser marking, laser welding, laser cutting, and laser micromachining. In this webinar, we explore some of the commercially available lasers for these application and several process examples.

This webinar covers typical hermetic seam sealing applications using High Frequency Inverter seam welders for a range of markets including medical device manufacturing, electronic and communication devices.
Hermetic Sealing of Electronic Packages is the solution to protect sensitive components like implantable medical devices, RF and photonic communication devices and sensors that needs to withstand harsh or challenging environmental conditions by encapsulating these devices into leak tight metal or ceramic package. The hermetic seal can be realized by joining a metal lid to a metal housing by applying a series of overlapping weld spots creating one continuous weld joint.
