Dukane Corporation (stand W4691) will showcase its servo-drive series of ultrasonic welders, the iQ Series, to attendees at NPE 2015. The integrated all-electric servo technology eliminates the variability associated with pneumatic press components resulting in improved process repeatability and accuracy. This high repeatability reportedly results in fewer rejects for manufacturers. Dukane’s welding system addresses the need of an ‘out of box’ ‘plug and play’ servo-driven ultrasonic welder.
Since most components such as the generator/power supply are built-in, the welder has fewer cables, is very easy to install and provides a smaller footprint. In a smaller footprint the welder reportedly provides the efficiency and reliability of the digitally-controlled, Multi-Core iQ Series power supply with the precision of an advanced servo press. Further, Dukane’s Melt-Match technology precisely controls the collapse speed profile during the weld and precisely matches the collapse speed during the melt phase. Thus, the ultrasonic propagation penetrates deeper into the bond area and the affected heat zone is larger, resulting in superior bond strength. The Integrated Servo Welding system has the flexibility to connect with any computer that has Dukane’s iQ Explorer software.
