Rinco Ultrasonics USA Inc. of Danbury, Conn., launched its Electrical Motion ultrasonic welding machine at NPE2018.
The represents a move away from traditional pneumatic-type press systems to electrically driven welding machines, according to Gordon Hull, managing director of Rinco Ultasonics.
“This is a high-value addition to our product line,” Hull said. “It helps push the limits of what our customers can achieve in weld quality and repeatability.”
The Electric Motion welder enables users to finely regulate the weld, using precision positioning of the horn, along with the applied welding force to the welding rate.
Rinco said in the compressed air-driven design, in which the feed the for the horn returns after every weld cycle to the mechanical “home” position in the pneumatic cylinder. But the starting position for the Electric Motion can be selected freely to any programmed position, the company said.
As a result, the weld line can often be shortened, depending on the welded object's geometry.
