What is ultrasonic welding ?
Ultrasonic welding is a joining technique that uses high-frequency ultrasonic acoustic vibrations to create a solid-state bond between materials, typically plastics or other porous materials. The process involves applying a rapid oscillating motion at the point of contact between two parts, under pressure, to produce a seamless bond without the need for external adhesives, screws, or heat. The friction generated by the ultrasonic vibrations produces localized heat, causing the materials to soften and fuse together. This method is favored for its speed, energy efficiency, and ability to join materials without compromising their intrinsic properties.
How does ultrasonic welding differ from traditional fixation methods ?
WW technologies enable secure fastening in lightweight materials, even under extreme conditions, all within a minimal timeframe. Additionally, it offers unparalleled design flexibility and ensures a clean process. Say goodbye to screws or other messy adhesives.
What materials can be joined using ultrasonic welding ?
The process works on a variety of porous materials. The only requirements are that the substrate has a porous surface and can withstand a certain degree of pressure. Our pins are usually made of thermoplastic except for our Biowelding technology which uses bio-based or biodegradable materials.
How long does the ultrasonic welding process take ?
The total time required is between 1 to 5 seconds.
Are there any limitations or challenges associated with ultrasonic welding ?
Yes and it always depend on the specific use case.
In our non-medical fields, while ultrasonic welding offers numerous advantages, it is particularly optimized for automated industrial production and high-volume manufacturing. This is because there's an initial investment required for ultrasonic machines. Therefore, for smaller production volumes or manual operations, the upfront cost might be a consideration. However, in scenarios with large-scale production, the efficiency and speed of the process often justify the initial investment, leading to long-term benefits and cost savings.
