DC Micro Welder

Amada Miyachi America, Monrovia, CA, offers a linear DC micro welder paired with an electronic resistance spot welding head. The UB29 also features the company’s Advanced Data Analysis Monitor (ADAM). The linear DC welder features precision control for micro-miniature resistance welding. It is ideal for wire assemblies, sensors, connectors, squibs, catheters, orthodontic appliances, pacemakers, and implantable hearing devices.

The Series 320 electronic resistance spot welding head is a high-precision, low-force head designed specifically for applications requiring precise position and force control. This versatile series has numerous features to meet the process demands of microelectronics manufacturing, yet is robust enough to endure industrial requirements and environments.

ADAM monitors what happens during the weld, as well as what happens before the weld is triggered, offering a 360° view of the process. Sophisticated SPC capabilities enable customers to analyze and collect data. Other key features include current, voltage, power, resistance, force, and cover gas flow monitoring; high resolution sensors; pre- and post-trigger viewing; envelope limits; and Ethernet communications capability.

Pico Technology, Cambridgeshire, UK, has increased the bandwidth of its family of sampling oscilloscopes with two new 25 GHz models. The PicoScope is USB controlled 9300 offers low-cost, high-integrity options for viewing and measuring RF and microwave signals, paths, and networks. The new 2 and 4 channel 25 GHz oscilloscopes support fifth harmonic capture for data up to including 10 Gb/s and supports third harmonic capture up to 16 Gb/s. These rates, and others in between, are increasingly found in Ethernet, Thunderbolt, USB 3.1, PCIe 4, Rapid I/O, e-SATA, OC-192/STM-64, and OC-256. All have transmission lines, cables, components, transmitters, and receivers that need precompliance testing and characterization.

Pull-Wire Switches

Wireless, pull-wire switches from Steute Industrial Controls, Ridgefield, CT, feature an internal electrodynamic energy generator. The switches require no battery, and displacement of the actuator generates power to send a unique, coded telegram to one or more compatible, easily programmed receivers. If pull-wire switch does not receive a signal that the telegram was received by the receiver within 15 ms, it transmits a second telegram.
