Laser plastic welding in the medical technology sector

You are here: Processes > Areas of Application > Medical Technology > Medical Technology
Laser plastic welding is a hygienic and absolutely particle-free welding method that is therefore ideally suited to the needs of medical technology. Flexible production, stress-free processing, hygienic and highly precise processing procedures guarantee quality and profitability. Several testing methods are available to document the welding process of each individual component.

To weld plastic components in the medical technology sector, LPKF supplies stand-alone systems as well as fully automatable inline production systems. All of the machines can be equipped for clean room applications.

Laser welding machines in the microfluidics segment

Microfluidics would not be possible without laser welding: precise joint lines several meters long seal fine channels safely and reliably without any geometrical restrictions. Microfluidics and the diagnostic equipment sector also demand resolutions which can only be achieved using laser technology. And in all cases: An absolute priority is ensuring that no foreign bodies or additives can penetrate the channels.

Seam widths in the micrometer range can now be produced using fiber lasers or fiber-coupled diode lasers without restricting the flexibility of the welding seam geometry or the strength of the joins.

The advantages of laser plastic welding for medical technology

  • new design options
  • joint lines in the micrometer range
  • complete tightness of joint lines
  • hygienic energy input
  • particle-free working
  • clean room compatible
  • no foreign bodies or additives (adhesives)
  • traceability / end-to-end process monitoring
  • extremely short cycle times
  • very short cycle times
  • for stand-alone workplaces and fully automated inline production systems
