The Plastic Welding Division of Garbsen, Germany-based LPKF Laser & Electronics AG recently demonstrated the new LQ-Vario, a compact, flexible laser-welding system designed for small- and medium-sized production volumes.
LQ-Vario also is good for prototyping and process development, LPKF said.
A precise fiber laser in the MF version of the laser guarantees the type of ultrafine welding join lines required in small micro-fluidic medical parts, the company said.
The company runs a U.S. operation, LPKF Laser & Electronics North America, in Tualatin, Ore., and recently opened a new location for its Plastics Welding Division in Orion, Mich.
