Amada Miyachi America Inc.’s update to its Series 320 electronic weld head system increases the maximum weld force to 7.0 lbs (3175 g) with a maximum follow up force of 7.75 lbs (3520 g). The system can do safety critical applications in the medical, aerospace, precision electronics and automotive markets.

With the expanded force range, it does fine wire welding like squib wires as well as hearing aid components, electronic components and implantable medical devices. The weld head system is designed to meet the process demands of microelectronics manufacturing and be robust enough to endure industrial environments. It can be configured with in-line or offset opposed electrodes to tailor the weld head for specific applications.

With accurate force and position parameters, the system can provide process control and measurement. The weld-to-displacement feature stops the weld during collapse.

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
