Herrmann Ultrasonics Inc. of Schaumburg, Ill., said its Ultra-robot is a flexible cell for ultrasonic welding of plastic components — using a six-axis robot.
The robot can be supplied by any robot maker, as long as the end-of-arm load and welding forces are taken into consideration when picking the robot.
Herrmann Ultrasonics has developed an end-of-arm weld head that uses two different weld horns to accommodate different welding applications without the need for a tool change.
The company's Windows-based controller, Dialog, touch-controls all welding and interfaces with the robot, without the need for a programmable logic controller.
Herrmann Ultrasonics also started offering its Ultracell mobile workstation to the North American market.
The self-contained unit integrates any of Herrmann's ultrasonic plastic welders. A Dialog touch controller or MPC generator may be mounted on the outside of the Ultracell, eliminating the need to make manual adjustments of welding parameters inside the enclosure.
The company introduced the Ultracell in January at the Medical Design & Manufacturing West show in Anaheim, Calif.
The company also introduced the HSG hand-held welder in North America. Two different grip options allow the operator to pick the most comfortable angle.
This year, Herrmann Ultrasonics is celebrating its 15th anniversary in the United States. It is a unit of Herrmann Ultraschalltechnik GmbH & Co. KG in Karlsbad, Germany.
