Ultrasonic Welding

We have been providing ultrasonic welding services for over 12 years and have built up a lot of experience with the process. This is a great process which creates strong and very neat weld seams without the use of solvents, adhesives or external heat.

Ultrasonic welding uses high-frequency sound waves and pressure to bond plastics together to create a fully assembled product. Ultrasonic assembly is widely accepted and is used in the automotive, medical, electrical and electronic, communications, appliance, consumer products, toys, textile and packaging industries. It is an economical process that can significantly increase production and lower assembly costs.

Our welding facilities include 4 ultrasonic welding machines. Three of our machines have a 1500-Watt capacity and our newest ultrasonic welding machine has a capacity to 4000 Watts which allows us to weld large areas requiring high power.

 

Ultrasonic Welding Advantages

There are many advantages to using ultrasonic welding for your product assembly. It is a fast, clean, efficient and repeatable process that produces strong, integral bonds between parts whilst consuming very little energy. Other advantages include:

 

  • No solvents, adhesives, mechanical fasteners or external heat is required.
  • The finished welded assembly is very strong and clean.
  • Great for assembling difficult materials.
  • Part assemblies are cycled quickly because the energy transferred to the joint and released as heat occurs very rapidly and is confined to the immediate joint area. The rapid dissipation of heat makes this process considerably faster than other methods of assembly.
  • An ultrasonic assembly system’s tooling and/or application can be quickly changed offering flexibility and versatility not found in many other assembly processes.
  • The relatively low-cost investment in ultrasonic equipment vs. its high reliability, long life, and consistent, repeatable performance, makes ultrasonic welding the preferred method of assembly.
