Problem: A manufacturer of medical endoscopes needed metalized
sapphire windows with extremely smooth optically polished
faces to allow for hermetic sealing into a Nickel 200 tube that
was brazed to the sapphire.
Solution: Insaco recommended a unique manufacturing process at Insaco
which would improve the overall quality of the sapphire
window while allowing for improved hermetic sealing in order
to autoclave the endoscope.
Result: The manufacturing changes in the orientation of the sapphire window allowed for creating
a strong hermetic seal which further enhanced the ability to autoclave the endoscope
resulting in a 35% increase in overall yield on the final brazed sub-assembly.
