In the case of microwelding
, where the welds were much smaller (ranging from 11 to 200 [micro]m than the smallest thermocouple, thermal histories were based on temperature field predictions.
clearly accommodates the design of medical devices that trend smaller in form and more capable in function.
By using balls manufactured from silicon nitride instead of tool steel, microwelding
in the ball nut is eliminated.
The WS9000 series seam sealing system combines precision microwelding
capabilities with a rotating wheel and mandrel electrode configuration that creates uniformly consistent seam welds in a single pass.
Production assembly processes including microwelding
and automatic die-attach stations and a complete range of microwave test equipment -- including microwave network analyzers for gain and phase tracking measurements, and precision noise figure equipment for measuring low-noise solid-state amplifiers and receiver front-ends.

," Metallurgical & Materials Transactions B, vol.
The new workstation has been designed with the needs of the precision microwelding
and microcutting industry in mind--such as for the manufacture of medical devices--providing a level of accuracy and consistency previously unavailable.
Coherent says its high-power F-Package Diode Laser System was selected for Ohio State University's microwelding
research because it reportedly offers the highest degree of brightness available in fiber-coupled turnkey laser systems.
The WS4000 series user-configurable workstation is a highly integrated microwelding
system that combines power supply, weld heads, motion control and parts handling into semi-and fully automated platforms.
Diode Laser Microwelding

The new Microwelding
System from NovaTech Inc., Smithfield, R.I., has a magnifying lens and lighting to show exactly where a weld puddle is applied during micro-repairs.
Laser welding has been adopted for manufacturing automotive sensor and actuator housings, as well as microwelding
of thin-walled medical tubing.
