PA&E utilizes the latest state-of-the-art laser welding systems to permanently join materials using the radiation from a focused, energy-dense, beam of infrared light. This non-contact laser welding process minimizes thermal and mechanical stresses, and provides an extremely small heat-affected zone, ensuring components or electronic packaging are exposed to the least-hostile welding environment possible.
Precise, Reworkable Hermetic Seals
PA&E’s laser welding systems are computer
controlled, including all laser parameters and motion systems axes. This, in combination with an extensive document control system, assures you consistency and repeatable results from the first component today through the last component years down the road. Housings with laser welded connectors are also reworkable. If a connector pin, for example, is broken in the late stages of population, that entire connector can easily be replaced without raising the temperature of that populated package and endangering sensitive electronics. Laser welding creates an extremely small heat afffected zone.
PA&E’s experienced engineers are consistently developing the latest material combinations to offer customers all the advantages of laser welding a connector or an electronic package design. Further, PA&E also provides welds that produce hermetic seals as small as .009″ nominal spot size for your micro requirements or up to .047″ nominal for the largest requirements designers may have.
