Infinity™ Ultrasonic Welding: Leading the Way in a Post-pneumatic World

James Jackstien, Regional Sales Manager & Plastic Welding Expert, Dukane

Pneumatic systems
were/are more than capable of producing the force required to achieve melt. However, the
inherent variability within the chained pneumatic system made it impossible to repeatedly
control the rate of down speed and, subsequently, the force applied to the workpiece during
the weld cycle. The inability to repeatedly Continue Reading Infinity™ Ultrasonic Welding: Leading the Way in a Post-pneumatic World

What is the right material for making Ultrasonic Horns?

Ultrasonic horn stretches and shrinks in length during the plastic 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 is the right material for making Ultrasonic Horns?

Which Applications are Best Suited for 2μm Laser Welding?

Josh Brown
Global Sales Manager, Laser Welding.
Dukane

While you will find 2μm lasers being used in a broad range of industries including automotive, general industrial, films, and packaging, the majority of 2μm welding demand is coming from the medical industry.  Typical laser welding applications include: microfluidic devices, tubing, bags, connectors, catheters, on-body devices, diagnostic cassettes, fluid chambers and tanks, filtration devices, and more.  Microfluidics, diagnostic cassettes, and assays often require components to be transmissive… Continue Reading Which Applications are Best Suited for 2μm Laser Welding?

Reduce Flash, Get Stronger Welds, & Lower Residual Stress with Dynamic Weld Velocity

Ken Holt & David Cermak

Assembling medical devices and other medical components are demanding.  Consistently producing good parts, in a validated process, while recording, storing, and analyzing data points is imperative.  Utilizing an ultrasonic welding process for assembly is widely accepted for medical devices and components because it is a fast, clean, easy to validate, repeatable assembling process. However, the… Continue Reading Reduce Flash, Get Stronger Welds, & Lower Residual Stress with Dynamic Weld Velocity
