The Editorial staff selected Sonobond's custom-tooled SonoWeld 1600 as one of the top wire harness and cable connector products of the year.
The Company's ultrasonic assembly machinery is used for a wide variety of filtration applications in the automotive, airline, food, paper, pharmaceutical, air & water filtration, liquid absorption, agricultural, petroleum, and environmental fields. The equipment operates four times faster than sewing machines and ten times faster than adhesive machines, is easy to operate and requires minimal training.
Forty percent of the booms used by BP in the Gulf Oil Spill were manufactured by Supply Pro of Houston, Texas. The inner polypropylene socks of these booms are assembled using SeamMaster™ SM86 High Profile bonders. These ultrasonic sewing machines create reliable seams that are strong enough to support an eight- or ten-fold increase in weight due to oil absorption.
The ultrasonic process helps ensure quick production of capacitors, which conform to the highest standards of dependability. The company adds another Sonobond welder to help extend its range of weldable materials.
The Company is pleased by both the performance of Sonobond’s equipment to weld foils to capacitor posts and by its commitment to helping CD find customized welding solutions.
JL Filtration Makes Filter Bags with RingMasterTM and PlungBonderTM
This Canadian company has used Sonobond's ultrasonic machines since 2005 to produce single-layered filters utilized in its in-field inspection of oil pipelines. These filter bags ensure the testing water is properly cleaned before it is returned to the environment.
Sonobond has the Only Ultrasonic Welder Capable of One-Pulse Splicing of 100 mm² Wire Bundles.
The unique Dual Head SpliceRiteTM is another example of the company's ultrasonic metal welding innovations that has enabled it to maintain its leadership position since 1960.
The company's product line offers significant advantages over other brands of ultrasonic welding equipment. For example, Sonobond metal spot welders use the patented Wedge-Reed coupling system that combines high vibratory force with low amplitude ultrasonics. This enables them to weld most tinned and oxidized metals - in just one pulse and without precleaning. True metallurgical bonds are created in nonferrous materials for wire-to-terminal, wire-to-wire and thin sheet metal applications.
Lake Cable LLC manufactures wire and cable assemblies for the power generation, energy distribution, building automation and fire systems industries. Its new SonoWeld metal welder features a custom anvil slide assembly, as well as a modified frame, which accommodates materials up to 4.5 inches wide.
Demand is increasing for West Chester, PA-based Sonobond Ultrasonics’ textile bonding and converting equipment used in the filtration industry. Known as the SeamMasterTM series, these ultrasonic units have been reconfigured for specific applications in the assembly of industrial and commercial filtration devices.
Most wiring harness manufacturers, especially those in the automotive harness industry, have come to recognize the important advantages of ultrasonic welding in the assembly process.
The ultrasonic metal welding process is widely used in the automotive industry to assemble a variety of connectors used in wire harnesses, wire-to-wire, wire-to-terminal, and wire tipping applications.
Other joining methods may be cheaper to buy, but none is as cost-effective to use.
Ultrasonic welding is a proven method for assembling metal parts. Typical applications include wire harnesses, automotive parts, medical devices, rechargeable batteries, and copper tubing for heating, ventilating and cooling equipment.
Ultrasonic metal welding holds distinct advantages over mechanical assembly devices and soldering, according to engineers at Electro-Canada, Toronto, (www.electrocanada.com), a manufacturer of wire harnesses for automotive and off-highway industries.
The Axiom Group, based in Ontario, Canada, manufactures wire harnesses and plastic components for automotive door mechanisms, but the company’s usual methods for crimping and soldering splices on wire harnesses weren’t up to par. “We used mechanical crimping,” says John Cresnik, general manager of the Axiom Group, “so different terminals were needed for the various wire combinations. This slowed production and increased costs.”
