Ultrasonic Welding

Technology suitable for both serial and small quantity production

Ultrasonic welding is a solid-state welding process in which consolidation of joining partners is achieved by pressure and friction energy. The components to be welded are clamped between the support bases and tip (sonotrode). The sonotrode is vibrated at a frequency in the ultrasonic range and induce oscillatory stress in the interface between components that disrupt the surface oxides and supply energy for bonding.
