What material is best for making Ultrasonic Horns?

Ultrasonic horn stretches and shrinks in length during the welding process like a spring. For example, a 20 kHz horn is typically a one-half wavelength long resonant bar, whose molecules are constantly expanding and contracting 20,000 times per second. Consequently, the horn is continually under compression or tension. That’s why, for manufacturing ultrasonic horns –… Continue Reading What material is best for making Ultrasonic Horns?
