Ultrasonic Cutting

SONOTRONIC offers standard machines, customized special machines, systems and components for ultrasonic cutting.

The ultrasonic cutting machines from SONOTRONIC are very versatile because of the specially adapted ultrasonic tools. Ultrasonic technology improves cutting quality and performance. Moreover it is possible to seal the material simultaneously by ultrasound during cutting, which results in neat trim edges. The direct mode of action of ultrasound means that no heating or cooling down periods are needed when starting and stopping the machine or when changing tools.

Depending on application, cutting can be performed vertically, horizontally or continuously (roll seam sonotrodes) with the appropriate sonotrode design. Sonotrodes used as cutting tools suffer comparatively low wear. Because they are cold, as in the case of ultrasonic welding and punching, a wide variety of materials can be efficiently processed.

SONOTRONIC uses the technology in special machines for various sectors, for example, for separating non-woven or fabrics in the automotive industry. For the textile industries, we supply mainly ultrasonic systems and assemblies for incorporation in existing machine concepts.

In the textile sector, ultrasonic cutting is distinguished by the fact that the cut edges of the non-woven or fabric do not fray. Instead, they are sealed or fused by ultrasonic technology. Besides which, during cutting desirable material embossing occurs along the cut edges, making the material thinner. In addition, SONOTRONIC offers machines for hot blade cutting. Particularly neat welded edges are obtained during hot blade cutting by compressing the cut edges.

Our Products

SONOTRONIC offers standard machines, customized special machines, systems and components for ultrasonic punching.

The patented ultrasonic punching from SONOTRONIC makes it possible to introduce precisely defined openings of very high quality in plastic parts or textiles. In the automotive industry, ultrasonic punching is ideal for materials, such as PP, PP-EPDM, PC/ABS, PC/PBT or composite materials, such as textile /PUR, Slush/PUR/ABS.

Automotive

As the developer of ultrasonic punching and the worldwide market leader in this area, we deploy the technology in special machines for various different applications. The automotive industry, in particular, benefits from this innovation. For example, the apertures for parking sensors or headlamp washing systems when punched with radial embossing, can be introduced directly into the already painted bumpers.

As a result of a special sonotrode design, the radius can be embossed directly following cutting. The plastic, which is heated by ultrasound, is reformed for the purpose at the separating edge. The result is radial embossing of visually outstanding quality. The punched edges of the workpieces are already welded or sealed during ultrasonic punching, in a quality that is visually clean and exceptional.

Characteristics and advantages

Process benefits resemble those of ultrasonic welding
Reduced punching force as a result of using an ultrasound-assisted punch
No stress whitening or fluff creation on the punched surface
Edges welded during punching
Decoupled, constant radial embossing irrespective of material thickness
Visually clean punching of painted and unpainted plastics
No subsequent change in punched openings as a result of punching already painted plastics

Packaging

Combining ultrasonic punching and welding opens up new possibilities in the packaging industry. Packaging can be sealed and separated by ultrasound in one process – even through liquids or wet contents. In addition, other sectors, such as the textile industry, domestic appliances, electronics and electro-technical industries, or medical engineering also avail themselves of the benefits of ultrasonic punching for appropriate applications.

Ultrasonic Welding Machines

SONOTRONIC offers standard machines, customized special machines, systems and components for ultrasonic welding.

Our high-performance ultrasonic welding machines are versatile and their build quality tried and tested. The high quality of our products speaks for itself – our products are designed and produced with maximum precision at our production site. We also attach particular importance to finding the optimum solution to your application with our special machines standard machines, systems and components.

Ultrasonic welding can be found everywhere where thermoplastics, polymer-compatible plastics are used and where strict demands are made of the joining system. Depending on their polymer compatibility, thermoplastic materials, such as PP, PVC, PE, PET, ABS, composite materials, fabrics, fleeces or films are suitable for welding with ultrasound.

Compared with other welding processes, ultrasonic welding is ideal if rapid process times and good process reliability are demanded. Moreover, ultrasonic welding is characterised by the quality, strength and precise reproducibility of the welds.

Ultrasonic riveting is ideal for producing a positive connection between thermoplastics or with non-plastics. Whilst the cycle times of ultrasonic riveting are greater than for flat welding, several rivets can be simultaneously applied with one sonotrode. Just like ultrasonic welding, riveting with ultrasound is also very efficient and at the same time saves energy. The technology is used mainly where fusion joins are not possible, where metal parts are to be inserted in a plastic housing or where the join is subsequently invisible.

Applications

Exterior:

Welding of headlamp lenses, wheelhouse or underfloor panelling
Welding of supports, e.g. for parking sensors, headlamp washing systems, side marker lamps, trailer couplings

Interior:

Welding of textile inserts, rear parcel shelves, suspension rails in door panelling
Welding or riveting of instrument clusters, airbag covers or door panelling

Properties and advantages

Very fast process times
Excellent process control and reliability by monitoring the welding parameters
Selective supply of energy through digital control of the welding process
Consistent welding quality with visually perfect and strong, as well as reproducible welds
Visually appealing weld design through individual sonotrode structure or anvil impression / embossing
Environmentally friendly technology
Cold welding tools: no machine warm-up times, no damage to work pieces when the machine stops, rapid and simple changing of welding tools

Ultrasonic standard machine ECO iSONIC

The ECO iSONIC standard machine gives ultrasonic welding a new dimension: it combines high-performance ultrasonic components with sturdy construction and up-to-date control solutions.

A persuasive argument in favour of the ECO iSONIC is its intuitive operation and user prompting. Even without expert knowledge and in-depth training, the user will be able to achieve top-quality welding results across a wide range of different components.

In the ECO iSONIC, SONOTRONIC is offering a brilliant all-round solution from amongst pneumatic welding machines. It guarantees extremely good production reliability and quality and pays for itself within a short period of time.

Applications

Ultrasonic welding, cutting, stamping, riveting and embossing of thermoplastics
Possible uses in all industries
