Shielded coax are found in a great number of medical device interconnects. A classic example is that of the ultra-sound cable. High density, high frequency signals have to be transmitted with the most flexible cabling possible – dictating very small conductor sizes in high density micro-coax ribbons.

See our discussion on micro-coax ribbon stripping in our Type of Wires section.

Precision Window Stripping

The development of novel interconnects in the medical device market continues apace. In the pursuit of the most compact and efficient fine wire connections, developers are starting to capitalize on Laser Wire Solutions’ unique capabilities in producing precision windows in miniature ribbon cable assemblies.

Combining the latest developments in precision optical beam delivery and real-time vision systems, we are able to offer unrivalled capabilities in producing small windows in ribbon cables. Manufacturing windows in a ribbon cable is advantageous for the manufacturing process, as the pitch of the wires are fixed for termination, greatly simplifying and speeding up the process of connectorizing the cable.

Please read more about our Odyssey range of laser wire strippers for such applications.

In addition to window ablation in ribbons, it is often desirable to cut the individual wires at different lengths to improve the connector design. We can incorporate laser cutting as part of the system to give perfect results every time.
