Laser System for Welding Microfluidics to Debut at MD&M East in June 2013
Visit booth #2013 to learn more about laser plastic welding
The system, which can join clear polymers without special additives, will be demonstrated throughout the three-day event in booth 2013. Samples will be welded on the machine during the show and handed out.
The LPKF PrecisionWeld is a new laser welding system developed specifically for the expanding microfluidic industry. It can create weld seams with a thickness under 100µm and has repeatability of 10µm, a level of precision necessary for joining modern microfluidic devices.
The system can join plastic two ways: with traditional transmission laser welding or with the new LPKF ClearJoining technology. With traditional transmission laser welding, the parts to be joined must have different absorption properties. However, with ClearJoining technology, two transparent parts can be joined together without the need for any special absorbers or additives.
A compact system that can fit through every laboratory door, the LPKF PrecisionWeld is ideal for prototyping and small batch production. The system is equipped with an integrated vision system that allows compensation for tolerances in applications.
- 56 µm beam spot results in <100µm welds
- Fiducial recognition camera
- X/Y table for working fields up to 12" by 12"
- Adjustable z-axis for creating wider welds
- Small footprint fits in any lab or production space
