Ultrasonic Metal Welders Provide Process Precision for Electrical Cable Termination and Battery Foil Tabbing
(August 4, 2010 – Newtown, CT) Sonics & Materials, Inc. will be showing their Ultrasonic Metal Welding systems, with precise, ergonomic controls and weld quality monitoring in time, energy and distance modes. Ideal for applications such as battery tabbing and wire termination, these systems can weld battery cables up to 100 square mm and can also weld up to 100 layers of copper and aluminum foils for large batteries.
Systems are available in both 15 and 20 kHz frequencies with color touch-screen power supplies providing microprocessor control and available power from 1200 to 6000 watts.
Engineered to provide maximum precision and safety, systems feature ultrasonic horn/stack frequency display; a convenient ground base with integrated safety switches; self-orienting horn and tips; a patented one-piece horn/booster with dual nodal mounts; an exclusive safety slide advance system; and indicator signal lights for weld status, part quality and faults.
Other standard features include ultrasonic power load meter, plus upper and lower weld limit settings. All models include soft-start overload protection circuitry, load regulation circuitry and digital wattage display. A large anvil stage with independent x-y adjustment facilitates part fixturing and precision down/up stops provide total motion control.
Sonics will also be demonstrating its line of ultrasonic plastics welding equipment, including hand held and bench model systems in 40, 20 and 15 kHz frequencies for welding, staking and inserting. Ultrasonic components, such as generator kits and converters, designed for integration into OEM special assembly systems will also be on display at the booth.
