Matchmaking is a unique skill, and in the world of assembly, few people do it better than equipment suppliers. Day after day, these experts use their extensive experience and knowledge to exactly match the right machine to a specific assembly application. When the project involves joining thermoplastic parts, often times the best machine is an ultrasonic welder.
“Manufacturers often come to us and say, ‘Here’s our thermoplastic part, what do you think: Is ultrasonics the best way to weld it?’” asks Jason Barton, director of business development at Dukane. “We tell them that if the required part production volume is very high, and the part is no larger than a shoebox, ultrasonic welding should definitely be considered.”
