Ultrasonic Plastic Welding Process - What You Need To Know

Ultrasonic Plastic Welding Process - What You Need To Know
11/12/2017

Ultrasonic plastic welding is a straightforward process that can take on many unique forms. Regardless of the specific application, the fundamentals of ultrasonic welding are the same. By using ultra high frequency sound waves, plastic is heated locally via friction, and deformed to meet specifications.

This process is extremely precise, and can be applied to many kinds of plastic. The materials are bonded without adhesives or the application of heat. While there is a very small amount of heat generated by the process, the equipment relies on sound waves, not direct heating, to create the weld. The advantages that ultrasonic welding can offer you are enormous. By using this process you can achieve a high rate of production, with consistent results. Unlike an adhesive, the bonding mechanism is computer controlled. This allows a high degree of integration into an automated system, with ease of quality control.

Ultrasonic welding equipment is also the most cost effective method of welding. In most cases a standard bench mounted machine in 20 kHz is suitable and in order to weld different jobs the only aspect the needs to be changed is the tooling.
