Sonobond Ultrasonics' Foil Splicer(TM) Now Features a New, Improved Power Supply for Faster, More Efficient Production

Increasing numbers of manufacturers rely on this ultrasonic welder for the production of the photovoltaic solar cells used in solar panels

WEST CHESTER, Pennsylvania, July 31, 2008-Sonobond Ultrasonics announced today that its MS-5010B Foil Splicer(TM) Modular System can provide a faster, more efficient weld than ever before. This is the result of a new, improved solid-state power supply that features automatic frequency control, eliminating the need to manually adjust the frequency. Manufacturers can now also specify a 220-volt power supply, as well as the standard 110-volt system.

In addition to the new, improved solid-state power unit, the Foil Splicer(TM) features a rotating head with a circular welding disk. These modular units can be easily integrated into suitable production systems.

Popular Among Solar Panel Manufacturers
Concerns about global warming and higher energy costs continue to generate increased demand for alternative energy sources. As a result, the popularity of the Sonobond Foil Splicer(TM) continues to grow among manufacturers of solar panels. Ultrasonic welding offers numerous advantages in the production of the photovoltaic (PV) solar cells used to make up solar panels. For example, the bonds have essentially the same strength and structure as their base metals. The welding process is also neat, clean, and economical. Ultrasonic bonding does not require excessive heat, fluxes, filler metals, tapes, or other consumables.

Solar panel manufacturers use the Foil Splicer(TM) to weld aluminum strips to the thin conductive metal layer deposited onto the photovoltaic modules. The Sonobond unit creates an ultra-reliable, solid-state metallurgical bond without cracking the glass panels in the photovoltaic cells. The resulting interconnects between the cells produce an array that has sufficient voltage and current to produce a practical source of electrical power.

The Sonobond MS-5010B Foil Splicer(TM) can also be used for fast, clean splicing of aluminum and copper foils. A rack and spline with drive system are available for this application and are also suitable for operation in a laboratory setting.

The Advantages of Ultrasonic Welding
In ultrasonic welding, high frequency ultrasonic energy is directed via a welding tip to the surfaces of the metals to be welded. The energy disperses the oxides and surface films between the work pieces in order to create a true metallurgical bond without melting the materials. Ultrasonic welding is environmentally friendly, produces no waste, and is economical to use.

A Leader in Ultrasonic Welding Technology
Sonobond is a worldwide leader in the application of ultrasonic welding and bonding technology. In 1960, Sonobond-then known as Aeroprojects-received the first patent ever awarded for ultrasonic metal welding. During the intervening 48 years, Sonobond has earned an outstanding reputation for its pioneering work and quality-engineered products. Today Sonobond manufactures a complete line of ultrasonic bonding and welding equipment for a wide variety of customers in the automotive, appliance, electrical, HVAC, aerospace, filtration, medical, and apparel industries.
