Robotic Ultrasonic Welding

Ultrasonic welding is a rapid and economical technique for joining plastic parts. It is an excellent technique for assembly of mass produced, high quality products in plastic materials

Automation processes continuously are looking for faster cycle times, tighter tolerances of the process and increased reliability. Robotic ultrasonic welding units are another step to push the limits even further

Inner and Outer Components are placed into CNC machined nests that simulate the final assembly dimensional requirements. An Ultrasonic welding head is mounted on the robot arm and melts the two plastic components together after they are clamped in position. A second robot will then dispense a hot melt material to seal the interface between the two components.
