Amada Miyachi announces the release of the Series 320 Electronic Weld Head System, designed specifically for applications requiring precise position and force control. The versatile Series 320 is ideal for safety critical applications in the medical, aerospace, precision electronics, and automotive markets. Typical applications include welding squib wires, fine wire welding, and welding of wires to electrodes, as well as welding of hearing aid components, electronic components, and medical devices.
Series 320 meets the process demands of microelectronics manufacturing, but is robust enough to endure industrial requirements and environments. It features inline and offset opposed electrode configurations for maximum flexibility, and exceptionally accurate force and position parameters, which provide outstanding process control and measurement. Users can set displacement limits and use weld-to-displacement feature to stop the weld precisely during collapse. The user friendly I/O offers four programmable relay outputs for easy integration with programmable logic controllers.
Other features include an initial part detection feature that detects missing or extra parts, and displacement limits that facilitate monitoring of both initial and final part thickness. An optional two-level footswitch or new linear motion footswitch makes it easy to initiate operations.
