Sonics & Materials, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of their free mobile App featuring easy-to-use interactive tools for plastics assembly and welding applications. The App is available in both Android and Apple platforms and can be found on Google Play and iTunes at these links:
The interactive tools enable the user to quickly match a large range of thermoplastic materials to the most suitable assembly process; to see the compatibility of a wide spectrum of thermoplastic materials; and to find hand held welding tip specifications for spot welding, staking and insertion processes. For example, to identify the optimal weld process for a specific material, the user simply selects whether the material is amorphous or crystalline and then clicks on the material, such as “ABS/Polycarbonate,” to view whether the processes of spot welding, conventional welding, staking/swaging and/or inserting are excellent, good, fair, poor or not suitable for that material. Likewise, to find the compatibility of thermoplastic materials, the user selects a material from the menu, such as “Acrylic Multi-Polymer,” to view the other materials with which it is compatible. To find hand held welding tips for staking, for instance, the user selects a Post type and a Boss diameter and can then view the recommended high and low profile tip sizes. In addition to the interactive tools, the app also provides overviews as well as more detailed information on welding processes, applications and equipment, plus a handy reference for OEM systems’ integrators and special machinery builders. There are also videos and a search feature. User-friendly navigation and simple menus make it easy to find information on particular plastics joining applications, from the best welding process to the most compatible materials. Sonics & Materials, Inc. is a worldwide leader in ultrasonic technology and has been manufacturing assembly equipment for over 45 years in the USA. Company president Robert Soloff holds the patent for the discovery of the ultrasonic method for welding rigid thermoplastic parts and the company produces a full line of plastics assembly equipment including ultrasonic welding presses, spin welders, hand held welders and heat staking/inserting machines.
Since 1969, Sonics & Materials, Inc. has been a world leader in the field of ultrasonic welding technology, manufacturing the industry’s most advanced welding systems, including large-part linear vibration welders and spin welding machines. The company, which is ISO 9001 certified, designs and builds a complete line of hand-held, bench-top and semi-automated welding systems, and offers OEM components, in-house application assistance, materials testing laboratory service, global sales and distribution network and on-site field service.
