Medical Device Assembly Solutions

Smarter joining technology for assembling devices that meet the exacting demands of the medical and healthcare industries.  

Meeting Rigorous Requirements for Medical Devices

When it comes to medical device welding, manufacturers trust Branson expertise and quality. Our process-neutral approach lets us customize the appropriate technology to meet your unique device challenges, from prototype to finished product. Branson welding products and solutions are FDA Title 21 CFR Part 11 capable.

Medical Device Assembly Applications

Consumables and Filters

Branson ultrasonic welding is used in manufacturing medical textiles and filters for syringes, pharmaceuticals, dialysis and blood products processing. It is also used in wound care dressings, as well as disposable garments such as surgical masks and hospital gowns. Creating strong, pliable bonds that won’t tear makes this technology an ideal method to join thermoplastic parts along flat seams. There is no need for needle and thread or glue to adhere surfaces. 

Drug Delivery

Laser welding technology helps manufacture drug delivery or dosing products, such as insulin pens, pumps, patches, and inhalation and intravenous devices, ensuring that they are free of particles. Laser plastic welding can be used in microfluidics for wearable, continuous glucose monitoring devices, genetic analysis, drug and disease screening devices. With its ability to achieve precise results on a minute scale, laser welding can create micro-welds with seams as small as two millimeters. 

Analytical Devices

Analytical devices perform tests on biological samples to diagnose a medical condition or infection, prevent disease or monitor pharmaceutical treatment. Other applications include in-vitro diagnostics, DNA and PCR-polymerase chain reaction testing and other lab-on-a-chip devices. Facing extremely stringent regulatory requirements, manufacturers of these devices rely on Branson laser welding technology to meet these challenges without fear of contamination or damaging delicate electronics. 

Surgical Instruments

Ultrasonic welding technology helps produce robotic and general surgical instruments such as the trocar, an instrument with a sharp pointed tip that acts as a passageway into the body for other instruments and typically contains a hollow cannula tube. Sophisticated, precise welding technology allows these instruments to perform laparoscopy and other minimally invasive procedures, as well as more traditional surgery. 

Patient Aids and Monitors

Life science professionals and patients are increasingly using wearable technology to monitor for symptoms of diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, asthma, epilepsy and more. These monitors provide a direct source of data and feedback. Branson laser welding technology allows manufacturers the precision and sensitivity to produce sensors that read information from the body remotely and transmit it.
