Applications of Ultrasonic Horn


Plastics,consumer products, automotive components, medical devices and most all industries utilize Ultrasonics. Metal inserts may be secured in plastic and dissimilar materials can often be bonded with proper tooling design. Ultrasonic horns come in a variety of shapes and designs, but all must be tuned to a specific operating frequency; the most common being 15 kHz, 20 kHz, and 40 kHz.

Ultrasonic welding utilizes high frequency, vertical motion to produce heat and the flow of thermoplastic material at the interface of mated parts. Pressure is maintained after the delivery of energy is stopped to allow re-solidification of interwoven plastic at the joint, securing the parts with a homogeneous or mechanical bond. This process offers an environmentally friendly means of assembly as opposed to conventional adhesives or mechanical fasteners.
