Sonics: New 30kHz Ultrasonic Hand Held Plastics Welding System
Handheld ultrasonic welding system.
Newtown, CT — Sonics and Materials, Inc. has added 30kHz model to its line of hand-held ultrasonic plastics welding systems. Like the 20 and 40kHz models, the 30kHz hand gun can be set to weld in digital time and/or constant energy modes, as well as continuous duty mode, for maximum control and versatility.

Digital time controls range from 0.1 to 9.9 seconds and digital energy controls range from 0 to 999,999 joules. Additional microprocessor-controlled features include autotune circuitry, frequency display, digital amplitude control, ultrasonic power load meter, and upper and lower weld limit settings.

Designed specifically for welding, staking, inserting and spot welding applications, these convenient and inexpensive systems are rugged and reliable yet compact and portable.

The new 30kHz handheld converter is supplied with a standard 1/2-in. (12.7 mm) diameter flat-faced welding tip that attaches to an integral titanium front driver. The front driver has a 1/4-28 threaded end to accept other standard or custom tips. Special carbide coated wear resistant, flat, knurled and custom faced tips, as well as a tip assortment kit, are also available.

Available optional accessories include a pistol grip designed for more ergonomic handling whereby the operator activates ultrasonics by pulling on the "trigger". Also available are a manual press which provides more controlled motion of the converter resulting in more consistent assemblies, and a plug-in foot pedal for "ultrasonics on" triggering.

Other standard features include overload protection circuitry, overload reset, DB9 PLC I/O connector, backlit LCD display, and quick-disconnect RF converter cable.
