The Technique used in Winding Micro Coils
During the process of winding micro coils, the size of the wires is the most important aspect. The wires used are very thin since many of these micro coils are used in medical fields. The wires, including the insulation used need to be 0.8mm in diameter, for insertion into veins during medical implantation. Micro coil winding requires specialized equipment. The equipment used in the winding process is not readily available in the market. This requires manufacturers to customize their machinery. The customized machinery needed for winding micro coils makes manufacturing of this product a niche market.
Leaders in the business of winding micro coils in the global market, ensure that they produce the thinnest micro coils in the market. A manufacturer can only join the leading pack after producing micro coils that are thinner than 8 microns. Manufacturing coils that are over 8 microns thin is dependent on possessing unique and highly specialized equipment. Employing experienced, innovative people that are competent in design is crucial in the establishing of great techniques in the winding process.
The procedure used in the winding of micro coils
The first step is employing qualified and specialized engineers who can design a state-of-the art advanced machinery that is unique and innovative. This process is crucial since the machinery used in the production of micro coils needs to be built in-house by the manufacturer. Coil winding machinery can’t be outsourced and is always custom built. This is followed by acquiring stay with the necessary technical know-how in the coil winding process. One very important aspect of the coil winding process is ensuring that the coils do not rub against each other. The first step in the process is isolating the wires and applying a layer of coat. This process is then followed by winding the coated wires around a core. Wires that are wound using copper require a layer of insulation to protect them from erosion due to the high voltage that passes through the wire. Wires made from other materials are resistant to breakdown from high voltage.
What are the significant differences in the micro coils used in the winding process?
The size of the wires used in the winding process is the most significant difference. The wire size contributes to the difference in the value of the electrical charge that flows in the wires. Another noticeable physical difference is the shape the wires are wound to, such as circular, rectangular, and elliptical. The shape of the wires may vary, however, the most crucial aspect of the wires is the dimension of the innermost and outermost coil.
