Sonobond Ultrasonics Will Exhibit Its SpliceRite(TM) Ultrasonic Wire Splicer at the 2009 WHMA Annual Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona

The SpliceRite(TM) easily accommodates even tinned or heavily oxidized wires, making it ideal for wiring harness assembly. This reliable, easy-to-operate metal welder will be on display February 25-27 at the Chaparral Suites Resort.

WEST CHESTER, Pennsylvania, January 27, 2009-Sonobond Ultrasonics, a leader in ultrasonic technology for over 48 years, announced today that it will be exhibiting its SpliceRite(TM) Ultrasonic Wire Splicer at the Wiring Harness Manufacturer's Association (WHMA) 2009 Annual Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona. The unit will be on display February 25-27 at the Chaparral Suites Resort, Booth #1.

In looking forward to the company's participation in the WHMA Conference, Sonobond's vice president, Melissa Alleman, said, "Wiring harness assemblers will be very impressed when they see all that our SpliceRite(TM) Ultrasonic Wire Splicer has to offer. This state-of-the-art metal welding unit has significant advantages over other ultrasonic wire splicers. For example, it can easily accommodate tinned or heavily oxidized wires. The unit also splices wire bundles quickly while creating a true metallurgical bond. It's no wonder that SpliceRite(TM) is the technology of choice for so many assemblers in the automotive, aircraft, computer, and consumer electronics fields."

Outperforms Other Ultrasonic Wire Splicers
The Sonobond SpliceRite(TM) Ultrasonic Wire Splicer consumes minimal energy while creating perfect solid-state metallurgical bonds. Most significantly, the unit easily accommodates tinned or heavily oxidized wires. No other ultrasonic welder can do as well. The SpliceRite(TM) also splices wire bundles quickly-without melting wires and without producing arcs, sparks, or fumes. There is no longer any need for clipping, soldering, crimping, or dipping.

Another significant feature of this Sonobond unit is its microprocessor controller which is able to store and recall up to 250 jobs. It can do this while producing welds by height, by energy, or by time. The SpliceRite(TM) system is available with either 1500 or 2500 watts power capacity.

Patented Wedge-Reed System
Like all Sonobond ultrasonic metal welders, the SpliceRite(TM) Ultrasonic Wire Splicer features the patented Wedge-Reed system. This system combines high vibratory force with low amplitude coupling. High-frequency ultrasonic energy is directed via a welding tip to the surface between the metals to be welded. The resulting vibratory energy disperses the oxides and surface films between the work pieces. This creates a true metallurgical bond without melting the materials. Ultrasonic welding is environmentally friendly, produces no waste, and is economical to use

The SpliceRite(TM) Ultrasonic Wire Splicer, like all Sonobond metal welders, features heat-treated, tool steel taper lock tips. These tips can last for 100,000 welds or more and are designed to permit quick tooling changes and fail-proof placement. Sonobond units can also be operated easily with only minimal training.

Over 48 Years of Industry Leadership
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 more than 48 years since then, 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 and applications in the electrical, automotive, appliance, HVAC, aerospace, filtration, medical, and apparel industries.

Sonobond also places heavy emphasis on superior service and exceptional customer support. According to Vice President Alleman, "Sonobond is truly committed to providing the very finest in personal attention and technical back-up. We respond promptly to all inquiries and work conscientiously to develop practical, customized solutions to each customer's requirements.
