Ultrasonic welding can easily damage electronic components if not done properly. Part of the challenge was to create a joint design to achieve a waterproof seal without harming the electronic circuitry during welding. Simply adding more force, amplitude or time to the welding process had the potential to do more harm than good. Comar’s expertise helped achieve this delicate balance.
Similarly, Comar also made design-for-manufacturing improvements by modifying the insert molded electrical contacts on the underside of the recorder and the overmolded activation button on top.
“It was critical that our supply chain was not adversely affected during the implementation of these improvements,” said Lynda Cole. “Our market growth plans could not tolerate any delays. I was very impressed with Comar Medical’s ability to execute.”
