Laser Welder Brings New Capabilities to Toolbox

We recently added a unique tool to our growing toolbox! Toolbox’s president, John Zeis, explains the significance of our Leister Laser Welder:
“Laser welding has always had significant advantages over other bonding methods for microfluidic/diagnostic cartridges. It creates precise, particulate free, hermetic seals without adhesives that may impact assay stability. Recent advances in laser welding methods have reduced cycle times to seconds, making it a viable high volume automated manufacturing method. The problem is that there is a high initial investment to purchase this equipment, and most contract manufacturers do not have a system in house that can be used for development. By bringing this laser welding capability in house, Toolbox has solved this problem for our customers.”
We are excited that our capabilities continue to grow, and that we can offer more to our customers. If you have any laser welding needs for development and prototyping of microfludic cartridges, please contact us and we would be happy to speak with you.
