Benatav has developed a thermo compression process allowing us to connect ultra-fine wires to others of similar or vastly different diameters and/or metal types. Traditionally, two similar or dissimilar wires were joined by welding or soldering. Our micro soldering, thermo compression process enables us to join ultra-fine wires as small as 9 microns, which is 5–10 times thinner than a human hair.
With increasing demand for miniaturized and microscopic components like sensors and transducers, the need to join ultra-fine wires is escalating. Yet, this task is challenging due to constraints imposed by the size, shape, and environmental factors of the final component, along with ultra-strict tolerance requirements. Traditional methods are no longer adequate for joining ultra-fine wires.
Thermo-pressure bonding can connect:
The molecular connections formed by this thermo-pressure bonding technology provide highly reliable, corrosion-free, and strain-free joins. The process is also more economical than traditional soldering or welding, which lowers manufacturing costs. We have tested thermo-pressure bonding extensively in a wide variety of customer environments and implemented in several production processes. This has proven its readiness for integration into mass-production processes, while meeting exceptionally high standards, such as those required by medical applications. The process has also proven suitable for both disposable and long-life products, for example, permanent implants.
Advantages of micro compression bonding include:
The following are some of the traditional methods for joining wires:
All of these methods either cannot be used at all due to physics constraints, or they introduce other issues, such as:
The ultimate answer to all these connectivity challenges was found in the form of an innovative thermo-pressure bonding technology recently developed by Benatav.
The following is a list of some applications that benefit from micro coil and ultra-fine wire connectivity technology:
Innovative ultra-fine wire technologies open a limitless range of possibilities for designers of miniaturized medical equipment and other industries. With the increasing need to access high-density body regions while minimizing interference with the body’s regular functioning, miniaturization in medical devices is vital.
For instance, a miniature coil manufactured by Benatav can serve as a navigation component in a cardiovascular catheter used for cardiac ablation. This component is a typical example of the benefits gained using Benatav’s thermo-pressure technology to mass produce high-quality, miniature components at a reasonable cost. As awareness of micro soldering grows, we anticipate that the use of these advanced technologies will become increasingly widespread.
