About AMADA WELD TECH INC.
Based in Southern California, AMADA WELD TECH INC. is a leading manufacturer of equipment and systems for resistance welding, laser welding, laser marking, laser cutting, laser micromachining, and hot bar bonding. The company provides products to a wide range of markets, including the medical device, battery, electric vehicle, and solar industries, as well as the global electronics, automotive, and general industrial markets.
Since 1948, AMADA WELD TECH has worked to achieve one goal: to solve our customer’s manufacturing challenges. Knowing there is no one solution that fits all, we strive to provide our customers with innovative and reliable manufacturing technology solutions so that we may be their single source provider.
Laser Welding, Marking, Engraving & Cutting: a broad range of fiber, pulsed Nd:YAG and Nd:YVO4 lasers for welding, marking, engraving and cutting with up to 7kW peak power and multiple output beams for OEM's or as turnkey systems with multi-axis CNC motion hardware. The company also designs, builds and supports both standard and custom workstation systems with CDRH Class I enclosures, multi-axis motion control, vibration isolation, inert gas glovebox systems, CCTV vision for inspection and vision-assisted motion, laser control software, and a wide range of standard laser welding beam delivery components and accessories.
Resistance Welding: resistance welding and process monitoring equipment and systems for manufacturing everything from microelectronics to sheet metal welding. Typical applications include parts for automotive electronics, sensors, medical devices, batteries and battery packs, solar cells, aircraft parts and electronic components.
Reflow Soldering: power supplies, heads, and thermodes for hot-bar reflow soldering. Applications include LCD attachment such as that used in manufacturing displays for cell phones, laptop computers, and automotive applications.
Hermetic seam welding and projection welding: equipment and systems for the hermetic sealing of semiconductor and small electronic devices. The company designs, manufactures, sells, and supports a broad range of welding and marking systems and atmospheric enclosures (gloveboxes, dryboxes) for customers in the telecommunications, aerospace, optoelectronic, medical, automotive and defense industries.

Our Parent Company
AMADA WELD TECH INC.'s parent company, AMADA WELD TECH CO., LTD. was founded in 1972 to manufacture and market semiconductor-related measuring instruments and welding control equipment in response to the demand for quality control in the automobile, television, and electronics industries. The company incorporated microprocessors and other electronic devices into its resistance welders to enable high quality precision joining and monitoring and analysis. Its weld checkers are used worldwide for weld monitoring.
In 1984, the company developed a neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser welder that allowed for more precise and micro welding, and this product line became a central component of the company's business, along with resistance welding. In recent years, it has advanced into laser marking, with the development of small and powerful Nd:YAG and neodymium-doped yttrium orthovanadate (Nd:YV04) laser markers.
AMADA WELD TECH has more than 600 employees (consolidated), in 10 sales offices and 2 factories in Japan, and 8 subsidiary companies. Annual revenue is ¥20 billion.
AMADA WELD TECH is an Amada Group Company. Its parent, Amada Holdings Co., Ltd. is a leading Japanese company, headquartered in Isehara, Kanagawa, which develops, manufactures, sells, and services products and systems for metal sheet processing, metal cutting, pressing, and machine tooling. The company was established in 1946 and is listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange (6113:Tokyo). It has 60 subsidiaries (17 in Japan and 43 overseas) and more than 7000 employees worldwide. Annual revenue exceeds ¥200 billion.
