Miyachi Unitek to Attend Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) West

January 19, 2011

Miyachi Unitek Corporation, a leading manufacturer of welding equipment and laser processing systems, announces it will attend the Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) West tradeshow to be held February 8-10 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Miyachi will showcase its laser marking and laser cutting technology to the medical device marketplace in booth #3051.

Miyachi will feature its UV (ultra violet) laser marking system, capable of producing high quality marks on plastic and metals. UV lasers can produce small characters on a wide array of materials and are ideal for marking plastics used in the medical and packaging industries. UV laser markers also offer extremely controlled metals marking, which results in the most reliable corrosion-resistant marking for medical and aerospace materials.

"Miyachi’s technology provides fast, reliable and corrosion resistant marking of medical devices," said Jack Lantz, president and CEO at Miyachi Unitek Corporation. "We have significant experience in the medical device industry and are eager to help manufacturers achieve UID compliance."

In addition, Miyachi will exhibit its latest laser cutting glovebox system, featuring up to 5 axes of precision multi-axis motion and sophisticated software control features. The system is ideally suited to the cutting of medical tubes. A proprietary position-based firing laser control algorithm enables precise pulsing overlap to be maintained during multiple linear and rotary axis coordinated motion.

Miyachi will also be showcasing the UB25 linear DC welder, which provides unsurpassed levels of control for micro-miniature resistance welding. The UB25 is ideal for smaller applications where closed-loop feedback control and fast response times are required. Safety-critical applications such as those found in the medical markets will benefit from UB25’s precision low energy control.

Representing the very latest technology in resistance weld monitoring, Miyachi’s Advanced Data Analysis Monitor (ADAM) will also be on display. ADAM not only monitors what happens during the weld, but also what happens before the weld is triggered, offering a 360-degree view of the process. Sophisticated SPC capabilities such as the integrated database and Minitab 15® statistical software enable customers to analyze and collect data. Other key features include current, voltage, power, resistance, force and cover gas flow monitoring; high resolution sensors; pre-and post-trigger viewing; envelope limits; and Ethernet communications capability. ADAM offers information to support ISO, GMP and TQM requirements.
