Ultrasonics for PPE Applications

As many people now know (but possibly weren’t aware of a few months ago), PPE stands for Personal Protective Equipment and is pretty much all over the news these days, as we all adapt to the new normal brought on by COVID-19. What many people may not know, though, is that ultrasonic welding and sealing systems can be used in the assembly and manufacture of PPE, such as face masks, protective face shields, surgical gowns and many other… View More


Stepper vs Servo – which motor is better for my application?

The short answer is, it depends on the application. For instance, typical ultrasonic assembly applications require an extremely slow and precise joining velocity, making them ideally suited for a stepper motor system, where the motor moves with absolute mathematical precision. More torque is available from a stepper motor in these ultrasonic applications that require slow, precise movement, enabling higher weld forces if needed. A stepper’s… View More
