Composite Horn – Ultrasonic Welding

Shivani Singh

Ideally, in ultrasonic welding the area where the horn contacts the part should be as close to the part joint as possible. However, at times, odd-shaped and sized parts prevent a half-wave horn from contacting the part where needed or developing sufficient amplitude to weld the application. In these situations, the answer is to use… Continue Reading Composite Horn – Ultrasonic Welding
