Excellent for Processing Lofty Webs or Materials
Enables bonding through lofty nonwoven structures that contain SAP (superabsorbent polymers) and other non-thermoplastic elements, thereby minimizing or eliminating the need for costly, messy and performance-inhibiting adhesives.
Faster Processing Speeds
Enables faster bonding capability due to rotary components. Rotary ultrasonic bonding is capable of more than 800 meters per minute in some applications.
Increased Operational Efficiency
When the cost of operating and maintaining the adhesive applicator equipment is eliminated, labor and utility costs will decrease.
Product Design Flexibility
Embossing can be done during the lamination process or separately. Anvils are often customized with intricate patterns such as logos and other designs.
Material Cost Savings
Ultrasonic technology provides cost savings by providing the option of purchasing less expensive, lighter weight nonwoven materials and elastics. This is because there is no bleed-through due to the adhesive.
Improved Product Comfort
Eliminating adhesive allows the finished product to be softer, odor-free, and offer more breathability. It also enables the use of lighter weight fabrics so the final product is thinner and has reduced visibility when wearing.
Ultrasonic bonding consumes less energy because it replaces hot melt delivery and application systems with a highly efficient ultrasonic energy source. Furthermore, there are fewer toxins in the landfill after the product is used.
