Original Press Release:
Sonics Introduces an Ultrasonic 40 kHz Hand Held Welder, Model H-540
Sonics & Materials, Inc. now offers a 40 kHz, 500 watt hand held welder, Model H-540, for the thermoplastics industry. This system is ideally suited for smaller applications requiring lower amplitude than the 20 kHz. It is an excellent choice for applications with a class "A" surface since the lower amplitude of the 40 kHz system reduces the possibility of marking the surface.
The compact unit is rugged, reliable, and easy to operate. The hand held welder is designed specifically for staking, inserting, and spot welding applications and is suited for manual operations with low volume production or for assembling parts with difficult to reach weld areas.
The 40 kHz, 1.5 lbs. hand gun converter is designed to accept a wide variety of 40 kHz horns. These horns can be designed to accept standard replaceable tips or can be supplied with a custom face configuration to meet specific customer applications requirements.
The Model H540 power supply features autotune circuitry which eliminates the need for tuning the system when changing horns for different applications. This newly designed power supply circuitry provides constant amplitude to the part being assembled resulting in consistent welds.
The hand held welder features a microprocessor based programmable timer for weld times from 0.1 to 9.9 seconds. A DB9 I/O connector is provided to interface with automated machines via a PC or PLC and allows the user to control or monitor functions such as amplitude, ultrasonics on/off, and overload reset. The Model H540 features overload protection circuitry for both the power supply and hand gun.
Optional accessories available for the Model H-540 ultrasonic hand held welder include a Manual Arbor Press which provides better ergonomic movement and control of the final welded part and a Pistol Grip accessory designed to provide better handling of the handpiece for certain applications. The Pistol Grip is a lightweight device that simply slips onto the standard model hand gun and allows the operator to actuate the ultrasonics by pulling on the "trigger".
Sonics & Materials, Inc. is a world leader in the field of ultrasonic technology and other plastics joining methods. The company, which is ISO 9001 certified, designs and builds a complete line of hand-held, bench-top, and semi-automated plastics assembly systems, which include microprocessor controlled ultrasonic welders, vibration welders, and spin welders. Sonics offers in-house application assistance, materials testing laboratory service, global sales and distribution network, on-site field service, and the industry's most advanced welding systems. Automotive, industrial, medical, packaging, toy, appliance, consumer, and synthetic textile manufacturers around the world use Sonics' standard or customized equipment to weld the full spectrum of commodity and engineering polymers.
