Leading medical device manufacturer selects iCure spot cure system

(August 4, 2010) — IRphotonics’ iCure Spot curing System has completed qualification and production acceptance with a leading medical device manufacturer in the United States.

Following a six-month evaluation project, the medical device manufacturer has purchased an undisclosed number of iCure units to bond microelectronic components on a disposable medical device. Using the iCure allowed a multiple step and batch  manufacturing process to be streamlined to single piece flow and allowed a cycle time reduction of more than 30 minutes. Under the terms of the agreement, the name of the device manufacturer cannot be disclosed.

Ruben Burga, VP Sales for IRphotonics commented "The iCure gave consistent and repeatable results throughout the evaluation phase during which the customers’ manufacturing group rigorously evaluated several different alternatives. We are extremely happy to have been selected; it confirms the iCure as an innovative solution ideally suited for automated manufacturing processes requiring rapid adhesive curing and localized heating."

The iCure AS200 is an inline fiber optic system that provides heat by Infrared radiation in a portable unit, delivering pinpoint and accurate control for temperature sensitive substrates and complex devices. Using infrared light to generate heat, the iCure thermal spot curing system combines the advantages of thermal curing with the practicality of spot curing.

Applications include Spot curing of thermal epoxies, bonding and fixing of plastic and glass components, fixing of lenses, temporary fixing of miniature components, precision assembly and bonding of semiconductor components, focused energy for micro soldering, and localized heat welding of thermoplastics.

IRphotonics designs and manufactures infrared fibers and systems used for the transmission of infrared light, and for assembly operations requiring high intensity infrared heat. For more information, visit http://www.icure-irphotonics.com
