Laserschweißgerät einer Medizingeräte-Montageanlage

Visi­on gui­d­ance is used in situa­ti­ons whe­re the com­bi­na­ti­on of tole­ran­ce stack-ups, beam dia­me­ter, and fea­ture size would cau­se incon­sis­tent welds. The Chal­len­ge With Pre­cisi­on Laser Wel­ding When you manu­fac­tu­re medi­cal devices, auto­mo­ti­ve sen­sors, and other intri­ca­te pro­duc­ts, fail­u­re is not an opti­on. With tight tole­ran­ces and com­pli­ca­ted assem­bly pro­ces­ses, con­sistent­ly laser wel­ding com­plex com­pon­ents can be a dif­fi­cult task to accom­plish and main­tain over a long peri­od of time in a pro­duc­tion envi­ron­ment. The focu­sed spot dia­me­ter for laser … Read More

Air­bag Infla­tor Elec­tri­cal Tes­ting

Elektronische Prüfung von Airbag-Inflatoren

Over­view Install a new, auto­ma­tic elec­tri­cal test sys­tem to test inflator/curtain assem­blies that are used to deploy infla­ta­ble side curtains with sound ergo­no­mic princi­ples and in-pro­­cess checks to veri­fy that all com­pon­ents in the assem­bly com­ply with rigid qua­li­ty stan­dards. PRO­BLEMS WE SOL­VE INVO­TEC has a lar­ge instal­led base of Infla­tor Elec­tri­cal Test Sys­tems that use a com­mon machi­ne design with modu­lar too­ling to easi­ly accom­mo­da­te models with dif­fe­rent con­fi­gu­ra­ti­ons and test spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons. The Inflator/curtain assem­blies are manu­al­ly loa­ded and … Read More

Infla­ta­ble Side Curtain Assem­bly

Montage von Seitenairbags

Over­view Instal­led new manu­fac­tu­ring pro­cess equip­ment to manu­fac­tu­re Infla­ta­ble Side Curtain assem­blies with sound ergo­no­mic princi­ples and in-pro­­cess checks to veri­fy that all com­pon­ents in the assem­bly com­plied with rigid qua­li­ty stan­dards. PRO­BLEMS WE SOL­VE Cushion Assem­bly: Fold­ed Cushions have rivets, bolts and was­hers instal­led with push­pins and ramps to com­ple­te the cushion sub-asse­m­b­ly. Press clamps are manu­al­ly advan­ced and auto­ma­ti­cal­ly locked to press and secu­re com­pon­ents in cushion tabs and will not be release until all pro­cess checks are … Read More

Laser Seal De-Gating

Laserstrahl

Over­view Trim­med injec­tion mol­d­ed seals from a sprue using a laser cut­ting method that pro­vi­ded tight tole­ran­ces and did not pull, stretch or tear the mate­ri­al befo­re cut­ting each gate free with no burrs. PRO­BLEMS WE SOL­VE This medi­cal device manu­fac­tu­rer had a seal pro­duct that nee­ded to be trim­med from its mold spru­es. The­se seals did not hold their shape, were extre­me­ly pli­able and requi­red tight tole­ran­ce cuts to make an accep­ta­ble assem­bly. The trim­ming pro­cess could not pull, … Read More

Inte­gra­ted Laser Wel­ding

MMS an Laserschweißanlage

Over­view Sup­plied a series of sta­ti­ons that were used to assem­ble and safe­ly LASER weld, check and LASER cut minia­tu­re parts in medi­cal devices. PRO­BLEMS WE SOL­VE Our custo­mers con­sistent­ly need a robust method for pre­ci­se wel­ding of small com­pon­ents. A natu­ral pro­cess can­di­da­te is LASER wel­ding. The issu­es with imple­men­ting laser wel­ding sys­tems can be nume­rous and chal­len­ging. Our custo­mers are often wor­ried about safe­ty issu­es and weld inte­gri­ty. TOOLS WE USE As a result of this need expres­sed … Read More

Inte­gra­ted Laser Mar­king

Reihe von Laserkennzeichnungsgeräten

Over­view Desi­gned and sup­plied a series of LASER mar­king sta­ti­ons to safe­ly and auto­ma­ti­cal­ly app­ly labels to dif­fe­rent types of devices. PRO­BLEMS WE SOL­VE The cur­rent manu­fac­tu­ring indus­try is see­ing an increa­se in the need for rapid, fle­xi­ble, low main­ten­an­ce part mar­king. New regu­la­ti­ons for tracea­bi­li­ty and requi­re­ments for machi­ne and human reada­bi­li­ty are also dri­ving this demand. TOOLS WE USE Inte­gra­ted LASER mar­king is a natu­ral fit as a tool to sol­ve this pro­blem. To offer our custo­mers the … Read More
