Dukane Corporation (St Charles, IL) has introduced a servo-drive series of ultrasonic welders: the iQ Series. 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 built-in, the welder has fewer cables, is very easy to install and provides a smaller footprint.
