Fabric and film ultrasonic processing is a specialized field and Dukane has the experience and technology to assist you with these applications. Standard Dukane ultrasonic products are commonly integrated into turnkey systems for bonding, slitting and splicing fabrics and films. We have the flexibility to accommodate your required feed rates, material thicknesses, widths and handling requirements. Dukane can supply the ultrasonic systems and tooling that meet your needs.
When designing and building fabric & film processing systems we specify the same 15kHz, 20kHz , 30kHz and 40 kHz ultrasonic thrusters, generators, and process controllers from our iQ product lines that are used for ultrasonic plastics assembly. Typical fabric & film installations are multiheaded systems, which take full advantage of our narrow profile thrusters’ close center-to-center positioning.
Dukane UFF-1 slitters are drop in modules to integrate into new or existing automated systems. For those low volume applications that benefit from ultrasonic slitting and sealing Dukane’s UFF-2 hand held slitter is an economic solution. The UFF units slit and seal wovens, nonwovens and knitted fabrics containing at least 65% thermoplastic (synthetic) material.
