Laser Plastic Welding
for medical technology
Laser plastic welding provides safety and reliability
Traceable processes, cleanliness in the application
Application examples for medical technology
Clean, fast, flexible, reliable, and suitable for clean rooms: The LPKF laser systems for plastic welding make it possible to produce safe, hygienic, and hermetically sealed joints between plastic components – without (chemical) additives, foreign bodies, or particle contamination and with only slight mechanical component strain. For example, this technology is used when joining plastic housings or geometric bodies and in microfluidics.
Small to large cylindrical bodies made of plastic are joined by means of a laser in a radial welding procedure: catheters, valves, pins.
Precise execution of fine channel geometries – for perfect diagnostic results without swirls, additives, or particles
Laser-welded housings – truly impermeable with hygienically impeccable joints and a corresponding appearance
Transparent plastic components joined by laser – for microfluidics or for components that are transparent for aesthetic or functional reasons
Process reliability and quality assurance
LPKF laser systems secure the process chain
Quality and profitability are ensured through flexible production options, material-preserving processing, hygienic and high-precision process sequences, and the traceability of all process steps. LPKF systems allow for integration in existing manufacturing execution systems through standardized electrical and mechanical interfaces – including with regard to Industry 4.0 integration.
And what is the weld seam like?
- Weld seam widths in the micrometer range
- Absolutely impermeable seams
- Particle-free result
- Extremely fine and visually appealing seam structures
Continuous process monitoring and process control – conveniently provided through the user’s superordinate, central control system – guarantee quality assurance. The welding process can be documented for each individual component using multiple testing procedures.
In addition, the systems can also be equipped as versions suitable for clean rooms and integrated in production lines.
