Process Validation for Medical Device Manufacturers

January 26, 2023

What is Process validation? According to Wikipedia, it is the analysis of data gathered throughout the design and manufacturing of a product to confirm that the process can reliably output products of a determined standard. As anyone who has gone through a validation process would tell you, the accuracy and repeatability of the equipment used in the manufacturing process of medical devices are critical to success.

Infinity™ Ultrasonic Welding: Leading the Way in a Post-pneumatic World

January 17, 2023

Infinity™ Ultrasonic Welding: Leading the Way in a Post-pneumatic World. Pneumatic press systems are so 1980s… well, actually more like the 17th Century, but that’s a different story. From the beginning, the prime mechanisms used to initiate the required force for a successful ultrasonic weld were a combination of pneumatic valves and cylinders.

What is the right material for making Ultrasonic Horns?

June 28, 2021

Ultrasonic horn stretches and shrinks in length during the plastic welding process like a spring. For example, a 20 kHz horn is typically a one-half wavelength long resonant bar, whose molecules are constantly expanding and contracting 20,000 times per second. Consequently, the horn is continually under compression or tension. That’s why, for manufacturing ultrasonic horns…
