CMS Laser’s wire stripping systems for coated wires was designed to remove coatings, such as polyimide and formvar, from magnet wires. These coated copper and aluminum wires require stripping before being soldered into place. The traditional method involves highly toxic and dangers acids to dissolve these coatings. Lasers can vaporize this thin material, leaving the wire in perfect shape in just a few seconds. Systems can be configured for reel-to-reel stripping, window stripping, and end stripping processes.
The laser source is chosen by CMS Laser’s applications lab through a free in-house sample testing study to determine the best laser and optics for the given material. CMS Laser’s engineers will work with you to develop the process and decide on additional components needed.
