Part of an ultrasonic press performing a mechanical work, exploiting the compressed air energy.
Variable measure of the mechanical oscillation magnitude (vibration).
Amplitude is expressed in micrometers(µm).
Tool which is counterposed to the sonotrode. It can have different designs, according to the application.
Automatic productive line set by PLC.
Tool composed of piezoelectric ceramics, which receives the electrical energy from the generator.
Thanks to the ceramics, the electrical energy is converted into mechanical energy (vibrations).
Part of an ultrasonic machine. It is used to increase the amplitude of the vibration which, eventually, will reach the sonotrode.
High-Voltage and sine wave generator. The converter will transform this electrical/acoustical signal into mechanical movement.
Measure indicating how many vibrations per second the sonotrode can perform.
Technique which allows working on two different materials, like for example the insertion of metal screws inside a plastic product: thanks to the ultrasonic vibration, the plastic part is softer and flows through the interstices o the bush.
Ultrasonic metallic inserts grant a great anchoring in the plastic part, even under twisting and traction.
Communication board among one or more systems.
Special treatment for sonotrodes which are going to be used for materials difficult to process.
Tools of different shapes per manual ultrasonic cutting and welding.
Device for setting and checking the machines and the automatic implants.
It is expressed in Watt; in the physics field, it is described as the amount of energy transferred in a unit of time.
Method of separation, which consists in cutting the plane surface of a plastic part using a cutting tool, though pressure or percussion.
For ultrasonic punching applications, electric contacts are used to turn off the machine.
It is the ultrasonic tool in direct contact with the plastic part.
According to the characteristics of the sonotrode designed according to the applications, it is possible to cut or weld different kinds of products.
Joining two materials using a rivet.
In the ultrasonic riveting processes, the mechanical vibrations are transferred from the sonotrode to the rivet.
The sontrode is the riveting tool.
Ultrasonic machine composed of a generator, a pneumatic actuator with a protective shell and a plate.
It is possible to use it both in semi-automatic and automatic implants.
It allows welding the two plastic parts thanks to the pressure generated by the pneumatic actuator.
Mechanical sound waves. Ultrasonic frequencies, differently from the common acoustic phenomenon, are not detectable by the human ear.
Trigger: Start trigger.
Ultrasonic initiating system selectable according to the application.
- In the anticipated mode, ultrasounds are activated at the exact time when the pneumatic system starts its run.
In this way, the sonotrode will start vibrating before getting in contact with the material which has to be welded.
- In the delayed mode, ultrasounds are activated when the sonotrode gets in contact with the material, following a triggering value (in this case strength/pressure).
The group of elements composed of a converter, a booster, and a sonotrode.
In ultrasonic technology, the electrical energy is transferred into mechanical energy thanks to the converter, which again transfers the vibration to the sonotrode.
