May 24, 2018 – AMADA MIYACHI AMERICA INC., a manufacturer of resistance welding, laser welding, marking, cutting, and micro machining equipment and systems, announced an update to its Series 320 Electronic Weld Head System, which increases the maximum weld force to 7.0 lb. (3175 gm) with a maximum follow up force of 7.75 lb. (3520 gm).
Series 320 is designed for safety critical applications in the medical, aerospace, precision electronics, and automotive markets. With the expanded force range, the Series 320 is a choice for fine wire welding like squib wires as well as hearing aid components, electronic components, and implantable medical devices. Series 320 can be configured with in-line or offset opposed electrodes to tailor the weld head for specific applications. The weld-to-displacement feature stops the weld precisely during collapse.
Also offered is an initial part detection feature that detects missing or extra parts. Displacement limits facilitate monitoring of both initial and final part thickness. In addition, the software has been updated to include a low force dress mode for preparation and cleaning of electrodes.
The updated Series 320 is available with linear motion or two level footswitch options. Four programmable relay outputs facilitate process control.
