Basic structure of an ultrasonic welding machine
An ultrasonic welding machine consists of a large number of coordinated components. The most important ones include The ultrasonic generator, the welding unit, consisting of the ultrasonic converter, ultrasonic booster and sonotrode, the holding and feed mechanism for moving the welding unit and a programmable logic controller (PLC), which regulates and monitors the entire welding process.
Overview of different types of sonotrodes
Sonotrodes are one of the central components within ultrasonic technology. There are a variety of types and designations, each of which is adapted to the specific task. The selection of the right sonotrode design is crucial for optimum welding results and depends on the material, welding requirements and geometry, among other things.
