SM-8500A Parallel Seam Sealing System (formerly known as SM8500)

Packed with advanced features, the Windows®-based SM-8500A, reliably performs hermetic resistance welding, brazing, and soldering processes on a variety of metals, alloys, plated materials, and solder pre-forms. SM8500 can be operated as either a stand-alone unit or fully integrated into a glovebox enclosure for a complete closed-loop hermetic sealing process for applications that include optoelectronic packaging, semiconductor packaging, transistor outline package welding.

Key features SM-8500A Parallel Seam Sealing System

  • Utilizes the advanced HF-2500A 25 kHz closed-loop feedback weld power supply
  • Programmable electrode force enables user to optimize both force and energy
  • Indexed electrodes ensure extended, even wear providing superior results
  • Position-based weld pulses provide increased or decreased energy at part corners reducing corner leaks
  • Electrode roll-back feature facilitates electrode release from light weight parts
  • Circular mode seam sealing allows processing of round parts
