Why Ultrasonic Welding for Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) Devices?

Ultrasonic welding is a commonly used method in the manufacturing of medical devices, including Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) systems. Our technology utilizes high-frequency ultrasonic vibrations to create friction and generate heat, causing the materials to fuse together.

As a CGM device manufacturer, we offer you several advantages with our ultrasonic welding technology:

  • Hermetic Sealing: Ultrasonic welding can create strong, hermetic seals that are essential for protecting sensitive components within CGM systems from environmental factors.
  • Clean Process: Ultrasonic welding doesn't involve glues, solvents, or other contaminants. This makes the medical devices more comfortable to wear and avoids skin irritation, which is often caused by chemical adhesives.
  • Reduced Mechanical Stress: The welding process is gentle, leading to reduced mechanical stress on delicate components of CGM systems.
  • Minimal Heat Generation: Ultrasonic welding generates heat primarily at the bond line, minimizing the risk of heat affecting sensitive components or materials in CGM systems.
  • Cost Savings: Unlike other assembly methods that require additional materials like adhesives, ultrasonic welding eliminates the need for consumables. This can simplify the manufacturing process and reduce associated costs.

Real-Time Feedback and Quality Assurance: Perfecting the Welding Process

Get an unprecedented overview of your production processes! Our Ultrasonic Welding technology allows for real-time feedback on bond integrity, enabling instant adjustments to maintain superior quality.

To ensure process safety and traceability, our integrated FSC software module records changes to system parameters and user actions in electronic audit trails. At the same time, the DataRecorder software module allows the permanent storage of process results on a PC directly from the ultrasonic generator. This way, both welds and user actions can be recorded completely in the interest of a holistic production logbook.

Benefit from a more reliable and safe production:

  • Process Monitoring: Tracks welding parameters in real-time, essential for process optimization.
  • Quality Assurance: Our smart controller system identifies any deviations, ensuring every device meets the required standards.
  • Precision: Ultrasonic welding offers precise control over the welding process. This accuracy is crucial for CGM systems, where components need to be precisely aligned to ensure sensor accuracy and reliable performance.

With minimal welding times and real-time quality control, ultrasonic welding is perfect for integration into existing or new high-speed manufacturing processes. We will consult with you on the integration of our modules so that you can benefit from the advantages of our technology as quickly as possible. 

  • Automation: Ultrasonic welding can be easily integrated into automated manufacturing processes, streamlining production and minimizing human intervention.
  • Fast Cycle Times: Fast, reliable bonding of plastic housings ensures your production line operates at peak efficiency. Rapid assembly and seamless integration mean quicker deliveries to meet market demands, giving you a competitive advantage.
  • Consistent Results: The controlled and automated nature of ultrasonic welding helps ensure consistent results across CGM devices even at highest production speeds, reducing variations in quality.

While ultrasonic welding offers numerous advantages, it's important to note that its suitability depends on the specific design and materials of the CGM system components. Our experienced experts will therefore not only consult you on the development of an ultrasonic welding process. They can also advise you on the development of your application so that you can benefit from the numerous advantages of ultrasonic welding.
