Medical device industry

For surgical devices, ultrasonic welding is often chosen as joining method – which is not without any problems, as the welding process can deform the material. Thus, riveting technology is increasingly used in the medical device industry, since this is the most gentle and absolutely reliable procedure. Depending on the material, holding fixture and quality requirement the specified process parameters may change.
