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…
