AMADA MIYACHI AMERICA Announces its Sigma Stent and Tube Cutting System won a 2018 GOOD DESIGN® Award

Amada Miyachi America, Inc., a leading manufacturer of welding, marking, cutting, sealing, bonding, and micromachining technology, announces that it's Sigma Stent and Tube Cutting System recently won a prestigious 2018 GOOD DESIGN® Award. The award-winning product features precision fiber and femtosecond laser cutting and microprocessing capabilities for stents and medical tubes.

 

The Sigma Stent and Tube Cutting System is recognized for its increased accuracy in laser cutting of micrometal tubing, allowing for greater precision and smaller features in the production of stents and other medical devices. “The team was challenged to fit a new class of laser cutter into a smaller footprint, while offering best-in-class engineering performance, ease of use, and durability,” said David Fawcett, Amada Miyachi America's President & CEO. “The result is the new Amada Miyachi Sigma Stent and Tube Cutter, which provides an improved user experience and upgraded ergonomics by integrating industrial design and aesthetics into a holistic package.”GOOD DESIGN® is the world's most prestigious, recognized, and oldest Design Awards program, organized annually by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design, in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. The trademarked award program was founded in Chicago in 1950 by architects Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr. This year, the Museum received a record number of submissions from the world's leading manufacturers and industrial and graphic design firms, representing the most important and critical mass of influential corporations in the design industry from over 47 countries.The Sigma Stent and Tube Cutting System's high speed linear motors and its latest generation digital controller minimize tool path cycle time. Process-matched ultrashort pulse lasers enable fast, stable, and high quality laser microcutting capabilities with minimized post-processing requirements, and optional single mode fiber lasers offer thick metal cutting versatility in the same system platform.  An operator-oriented system design maximizes the ease of use, efficiency, and comfort.  As part of the system delivery, Amada Miyachi America application engineers will develop and optimize the process that is supplied at no extra cost.The Sigma Stent and Tube Cutting System can be configured to accommodate a wide variety of stent and tube cutting applications. For maximum production throughout, an automated tube loader is optionally available enabling a range of tube diameters and lengths to be fed continuously into the system. A large, all-in-one graphical user interface offers a full view of machine status and provides efficient, intuitive control over system functionality via touch panel operation.About Amada Miyachi America
