The 6 quick steps to a successful ultrasonic assembly

Do you have an application that you think could be ultrasonically assembled? Wondering how to get from a couple of pieces of plastic to an assembled part? This is how our sales engineers tackle an application. While we don’t expect our customers to perform each of these steps, it’s important they be involved in this… Continue Reading The 6 quick steps to a successful ultrasonic assembly

How Tight is Tight Enough?

It is important to assemble and tighten your ultrasonic tooling stack to a proper torque. Just assembling the tooling stack as tight as possible could be detrimental to the tooling stack components. For example: the threads on an aluminum booster or aluminum horn can be stripped out due to over-tightening. Conversely, not using enough torque… Continue Reading How Tight is Tight Enough?

Vibration Welding and Compatibility of Materials

Raymond M. Laflamme
Worldwide Automotive Marketing Manager

For most applications, you weld the same material to the same material, example (ABS to ABS). To bond two thermoplastic parts it is necessary that the materials be chemically compatible. Otherwise, even though both materials melt at the same temperature no molecular bond will occur. A good example of this is polypropylene and polyethylene. Both… Continue Reading Vibration Welding and Compatibility of Materials

Dukane black and gold helps the world be more “Green”

Dukane Ultrasonics is playing a key role in helping companies reduce their carbon foot print thereby reducing global warming. It is generally understood that ultrasonics is a far more energy efficient process for welding plastic materials than processes such as heat-staking or hot-air welding. However, in addition to these plastic welding applications, Dukane’s ultrasonic welding… Continue Reading Dukane black and gold helps the world be more “Green”

When should I consider using ultrasonics to cut my food product?

Ultrasonic food processing involves a vibrating knife producing a nearly frictionless surface to which food products do not stick nor deform. Here are some things to consider when deciding if ultrasonic cutting is the right process for your application. Is your product sticky and causing excessive downtime for blade cleaning? Does your current cutting process… Continue Reading When should I consider using ultrasonics to cut my food product?

Ultrasonic Welding Effects on Hearing

In air, sound is usually described as variations of pressure above and below atmospheric pressure. These fluctuations, commonly called sound pressure, develop when a vibrating surface forms areas of high and low pressure, which transmit from the source as sound. Although noise-induced hearing loss is one of the most common occupational illnesses, it is often… Continue Reading Ultrasonic Welding Effects on Hearing
