Rinco Ultrasonics USA (rinco-usa.com), a leading manufacturer of ultrasonic welding equipment, will launch its new Electrical Motion ultrasonic welding machine at NPE2018 May 7-11 at the Orlando County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. (Booth #W5373). The new machine, available in 20 kHz and 35 kHz frequencies, represents a move away from traditional pneumatic type press systems to electrically driven machines, according to Gordon Hull, managing director of Rinco Ultrasonics.
“This is a high-value addition to our product line,” says Hull. “It helps push the limits of what our customers can achieve in weld quality and repeatability.”
The Electrical Motion welding system enables users to finely regulate the weld, using precise positioning of the horn, along with the applied welding force to the welding rate. This means considerably better results in welding, punching, cutting, and sealing of molded thermoplastic parts, nonwovens, and synthetic textiles. Another key feature of the Electrical Motion welding system is a high-performance, industry-type PC that can be easily operated via a 12-inch adjustable touchscreen, with the welding process triggered through an ergonomically designed two-hand operation.
The Electrical Motion Series is a next-generation product based on the company’s Dynamic 3000 ultrasonic welding machine (also with a working frequency of 20 kHz and 35 kHz) which was designed for technically demanding welding operations for medium to large-sized thermoplastic parts.
Unlike the compressed air-driven design, in which the feed for the horn returns after every weld cycle to the mechanical home position in the pneumatic cylinder, the starting position with the Electrical Motion can be selected freely to any programmed position. As a result, the weld cycle can often be shortened, depending on the welded object’s geometry.
