Benefits of Composite Horns Ultrasonic Welding

August 30, 2019

Ideally, in ultrasonic welding the area where the horn contacts the part should be as close to the part joint as possible. However, at times, odd-shaped and sized parts prevent a half-wave horn from contacting the part where needed or developing sufficient amplitude to weld the application. In these situations, the answer is to use…

Reconditioning the Ultrasonic "Stack" Quick Reference Guide

October 2, 2018

The ultrasonic “stack” is made up of three components: the transducer, booster and ultrasonic horn. The quality of the mating surfaces between these three units will have a major impact on the operating efficiency of your ultrasonic welding equipment. If they are not flat, if they become corroded or they make poor contact, they become…
