New iQ Series Ultrasonic Welding Systems

Dukane introduces a complete new line of Ultrasonic Press systems for plastic welding. The "iQ Series" Ultrasonic Assembly system utilizes Dukane's new patented iQ ultrasonic power supply/advanced controller. The iQ Series ultrasonic assembly systems have the fastest  data processing rate in the industry - 0.5ms update rate, due to Multi-Core processing architecture. This means these systems will process the weld data - Power, Energy, Distance, Force, Frequency, Time, twice as fast as older series equipment and a higher weld consistency and accuracy is delivered. The product line includes 30/40/50 kHz press systems that have a low-mass precision slide mechanism designed for delicate, tight tolerance, small applications. 15 and 20 kHz presses are also available with the Dukane Ultra ridged H-frame support for precision high force applications. The product line is truly modular and configurable to match users needs. Controls vary from basic Time only, to advanced (Time, Energy, Distance, Force, Peak Power) NIST traceable with calibration and validation for Medical applications. Dual pressure comes standard on the base unit. Advanced units have a force transducer and closed-loop electronic pressure regulator, which when coupled with Dukane's optional, exclusive, built- in hydraulic speed control, allows for precise melt velocity control.

The user interface is configurable to be either horizontal or vertical, allowing the power supply to be integrated directly on the press system. This new design saves space and is modular for easy repair and maintenance. All of the iQ Series ultrasonic power supplies have Dukane's exclusive flow through thermostatically controlled cooling tunnel, reducing the opportunity for contamination of internal components from dusty environments. Units incorporate patent pending UMMA, ultrasonic modular menu adapter. The LCD graphic display makes it clear, crisp and easy to view.

Dukane iQ explorer can be loaded onto users local area networks. This allows access to the weld data, machine controls and storage of machine setups on the local area network or via the Internet for remote locations. Troubleshooting of equipment and applications can now be performed from anywhere in the world. iQ - Intelligent Quality series ultrasonic welding system sets the standard for precision, repeatability, flexibility and ease of use.

Dukane offers a full range of ultrasonic, vibration, spin and hot plate welders, thermal presses, probes, tooling and software for both OEM and the commercial plastic assembly markets. Dukane is an ISO 9001:2000 certified manufacturer with 24/7 Service.
