NAI was presented with a particularly challenging medical cable, requiring a multi-conductor ribbon cable less than 0.5 mm wide to be cut and stripped with a complex pattern within tolerances of 10 microns. Several laser stripping machine manufacturers reviewed this project and either could not process this cable or could not propose a cost effective solution. The team at LWS was able to design and develop a custom solution that met our design requirements and cost expectations. This was not an easy project and the team at LWS worked through every challenge, delivering and supporting a machine that exceeded our process capability and throughput expectations.
