Parallel Gap Welder, SMAPRO100 DISCONTINUED, limited support
The Original Parallel Gap Welder, SMAPRO100 is the machine that started it all. Proven in laboratories and manufacturing facilities around the world, the SMAPRO100 is the foundation on which our technology is built. As a parallel gap welder, the welding process is created by the resistance (Ohmic) spot welding principle. This innovative welding technology used in combination with our patented pulse wave generation allows the SMAPRO100 to be used effectively for One Step Enameled Wire welding, metal wire/ribbon welding, and gold wire/ribbon welding. It seems every day we find another application for this robust and felxiable little welder!
The basic settings are user defined and can go low and fine enough to bond very delicate, fine gold wire, yet is also powerful enough to power through 28 gauge enameled wire! The key to the flexibility is our specially developed power and pulse algorithms. The parameters are user set and then automatically refined through a dedicated on-board processor using our tired and tested algorithms. This patented algorithm brings the full weight of our R&D team to your side when developing and perfecting process. In addition to enameled wire welding, the Parallel Gap Welders can also be used to weld metal wires and metal ribbon to a wide variety of surfaces. We have achieved superior bonding performance over other bonding methods with Gold Wire and Gold Ribbon applications. Everything from printed circuit board traces to thin and thick film materials; copper, stainless steel, zinc, gold, and more. Our machines provide the best quality, highest strength, most reliable, consistent, and cost effective welding joints for a wide variety of electronic and mechanical applications.
A distinct advantage of the PG welding process is that it is naturally RoHS Compliant as no toxic soldering materials involved.
The SMAPRO100 is available with several different optical options to fit your needs, including the Stereo Microscope shown in the image above. A few of our most popular optical kits are detailed below.

Our standard machine mount Stereo Microscope Kit, Model SW-SMA-5PG is a valuable optical tool in microelectronics manufacturing where performance and reliability rank as job one.
The SW-SMA-5PG package adds a stereo microscope body, an adjustable intensity 60 LED microscope ring light, a 4-way adjustable E arm, 0.5x objective, and a pair of 10x eye pieces that specifically meet the standard requirements of the PG Welder, SMAPRO100 shown above and create a complete welding setup.
Different eye pieces and objective lens sizes for specialized application and work heights are available upon request.
The SW-DMA-58N kit shown here consists of a digital monocular microscope, a high resolution CCD, an adjustable intensity 40 LED microscope ring light, and a 4-way adjustable E arm. The standard objective lens for this model is 0.5x but can easily be swapped out to accommodate to specialized magnification, work height, and application needs. The SW-DMA-58N camera utilizes a NTSC video interface. A monitor is not included in this kit but is available upon request.
For applications that require both standard and digital optics, we are proud to offer our Trinocular Microscope Kit, SW-TMA-52N. Integrating the features of a stereo and a digital microscope in one product, allowing the operator to view stereo and digital images of the objects simultaneously. This feature is great for operator training and situations where the operation is digitally recorded for record keeping.
