LPKF Laser & Electronics has announced it will exhibit at the 2015 Design & Manufacturing Canada expo, which takes place June 16-18 at the Toronto Congress Centre in Toronto, Canada. LPKF, a manufacturer of laser systems for a variety of applications, will showcase its laser solutions in booth 471.
One of the technologies highlighted by LPKF will be laser plastic welding; a process of bonding plastic using focused laser radiation. Clean-room compatibility and hygienic, particle-free processing make laser plastic welding ideal for the medical device industry. Potential applications range from microfluidic devices to catheters to intravenous tubing.
Another technology represented at Design & Manufacturing Canada will be UV laser depaneling, a stress-free method of removing individual circuits from larger panels. The stress-free nature of UV laser processing is perfect for medical electronics applications which feature flexible materials or carry sensitive components that could be damaged by mechanical depaneling methods such as routing or dicing.
