3D Wire embedding technology

Highest accuracy, cost and time efficient wire embedding

Based on a single station concept with compact design and user-friendly handling, the WCEvario3D is ideal for wire laying on flat and uneven surfaces as well as for producing and processing prototypes and small batches. With a wide range of additional options that may be integrated, the system can be profoundly expanded. 

For safe and accurate handling of complex components, the workpiece is attached to a product-specific fixture. With constant pressure-force control, a flexible wire-laying unit is able to precisely follow convex and concave contours. Parameters such as size and shape can easily be adapted to the respective tasks.

Our comprehensive expertise in sonotrode technology for various substrate-wire combinations ensures the highest precision in wire embedding.

 

Different versions for different requirements

WCEvario3D basic wire embedding system

Basic System

With the basic version shown on the right, which uses ultrasonic wire-embedding technology, heatable wires can be embedded with the highest precision and unbeatable quality in both flat and uneven materials. The system can handle a wide range of materials and is ideally suited for producing prototypes or small batches.

WCEvario3D production system wire embedding

Production System

With optional system expansions, additional features such as thermo-compression bonding or soldering, resistance measurement, sealing, finishing and optical controls significantly increase the possibilities. This system can also handle a wide range of materials and is ideal for batch production.
