Strand Welding

Stranded wire welding is ideally suited for stranded tinned wires. It applies an even, intense and massive compression. When compared to ultrasonic compacting, the surface of a resistance welding wire is even and not curled.         

Typical applications are sensors in the electronics industry, Y connectors in the solar and automotive industries and enamelled wires for motor and high frequency.

Amada Miyachi Europe has acquired extensive knowledge in strand welding and can offer a wide range of applications. We can provide solutions for your specific applications to join cables with large dimensions, mostly found in the automotive industry.

This two-step process consists of compacting and brazing. One proven application is a so-called intelligent battery sensor which allows battery power management. The result is a robust and very strong joint that has a perfect electrical connection over the lifetime of the product. The cable is contacted directly to the sensor tab without any additional parts.

Typical Strand Welding Applications

Benefits of Strand Welding:

  • Evenly compacted compression, no individual strands in compacted area
     
  • Wire surface remains even and does not curl
     
  • Perfectly and repeatedly meets the specific welding requirements for sensors, Y connectors and enameled wires
