Ultrasonic Metal Welding
Delivering expertise for efficient and reliable ultrasonic metal welding needs in the automotive, electronics, HVAC industries and more.
Ultrasonic welding is a solid state process that creates metallurgic bonds through friction for ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Ultrasonic metal welding systems and machines are ideal for welding nonferrous metals and meet the production demands of consumer brands and OEMs in the automotive, HVAC and electronics industries. The energy efficient-processes eliminate the need for added materials or contaminants such as flux agents, solder, solvents or crimp connectors, reducing materials costs.
With extensive materials testing and a global network of labs, our ultrasonic metal welding uses the latest technology to generate stable bonds that can withstand harsh conditions.
Ultrasonic energy has been used to join metal materials for decades. In ultrasonic metal welding, dissimilar materials are joined together without the use of applied heat or electric current passing through components.
Ultrasonic energy can weld through contaminates to create a clean seal while providing increased quality and control. To achieve a high-quality seal, one part is held stationary while the second part is compressed beneath a vibrating horn. The material reaches a plastic state where molecules mix between the two parts, bonding the materials.
The ultrasonic welding process converts electrical energy into mechanical vibrations causing the metals to join. In the ultrasonic stack, the converter transmits the energy through the booster causing the horn to vibrate. The converter is made up of piezoelectric ceramic disks that expand and contract at the same frequency of applied electrical energy. The booster increases or decreases the amplitude of the vibrations to provide the optimum amplitude for the material, size and type of assembly.
