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

Myths and Tricks to Successful Thermal Heat Staking

It is a known fact that applying a specific amount of heat to plastic resin using a heated tool will change the characteristics and shape of it, but did you also know that fine tuning the temperature and dwell time it takes to heat that resin can lead to stronger and more cosmetically appealing welded… Continue Reading Myths and Tricks to Successful Thermal Heat Staking

Tony and Paul pull an all-nighter

While it may not be obvious from the picture, this photo was taken at 3:30AM on a Saturday morning. It was a long day that started at 8:30 AM on Friday and would not end until about 8:30 AM on Saturday. This effort was the culmination of what had already been a week of long… Continue Reading Tony and Paul pull an all-nighter

Thermal Heat vs Ultrasonics

Thermal heat can provide solutions to many staking, swaging, inserting, and de-gating applications that ultrasonics cannot. Thermal heat should be considered when working with inserts or stakes that are of various diameters, and/or located on multiple planes and must be processed in a single cycle. Thermal heat is primarily used when limitations with ultrasonic horns… Continue Reading Thermal Heat vs Ultrasonics
