Which Applications are Best Suited for 2μm Laser Welding?

Josh Brown
Global Sales Manager, Laser Welding.
Dukane

While you will find 2μm lasers being used in a broad range of industries including automotive, general industrial, films, and packaging, the majority of 2μm welding demand is coming from the medical industry.  Typical applications include: microfluidic devices, tubing, bags, connectors, catheters, on-body devices, diagnostic cassettes, fluid chambers and tanks, filtration devices, and more.  Microfluidics, diagnostic cassettes, and assays often require components to be transmissive in either… Continue Reading Which Applications are Best Suited for 2μm Laser Welding?

What is the right material for making Ultrasonic Horns?

Ultrasonic horn stretches and shrinks in length during the welding process like a spring. For example, a 20 kHz horn is typically a one-half wavelength long resonant bar, whose molecules are constantly expanding and contracting 20,000 times per second. Consequently, the horn is continually under compression or tension. That’s why, for manufacturing ultrasonic horns –… Continue Reading What is the right material for making Ultrasonic Horns?
