Mansfield, MA – May 1, 2015 – Proven Process Medical Devices, Inc., a global leader in the design, development, validation, and manufacture of Class II and Class III medical devices, today published a new whitepaper, “Obtaining Robust Ultrasonic Welds for Medical Device Assemblies.” The paper, authored by Proven Process engineers Jeffrey Thumm, Barbara Donohue, Charles Aubin and Benjamin Piecuch, focuses on advanced techniques for ultrasonic welding.

Ultrasonic welding is particularly suited for bonding medical devices because it uses the device material itself to form a bond and does not introduce glues or adhesives into the device. A fast, clean, efficient and repeatable process, ultrasonic welding is ideal for joining just about any set of plastic parts for many applications. The Proven Process whitepaper provides guidance for readers looking to obtain these advantages, such as selecting a readily weldable material, designing and developing the joint, fixtures, welding process and process controls.

Proven Process provides comprehensive, integrated contract manufacturing services for finished Class II and III therapeutic and diagnostic medical devices. The company focuses on quality and service to produce medical devices that meet the demands of today's global market. In addition, Proven Process has the manufacturing capabilities necessary to ensure quality, speed and a smooth transition into the marketplace, including pilot manufacturing, product testing, failure analysis and many other services, in addition to ultrasonic welding.
