“I wanted to challenge the students to increase their problem-solving abilities with an innovative [ultrasonic assembly] technology for fashion design.”
“I don’t have to worry about finishing my delicate jacket in the traditional way.”
“[My design] didn’t get bogged down by seam binding and heavy hems with this new [SeamMaster™ High Profile ultrasonic bonder].”
“I have so much more creativity than I realized just through using this new technology. I’m learning that I can stretch myself more but without abandoning my interest in graceful, elegant pieces.”

“The Sonobond unit replaced two industrial sewing machines. Those machines processed only about 20 feet of material per minute. But our Sonobond SeamMaster™ High Profile Ultrasonic Bonder runs approximately 30 or 40 feet per minute. That means our Sonobond bonder is definitely boosting efficiency, while reducing labor costs.
“Total maintenance fees for the sewing machines cost us about $2,000 a year. But thanks to Sonobond, we no longer have to worry about those fees or about losing valuable production time every week for routine maintenance.
“We got consistently good feedback about Sonobond from everyone we talked to. Sonobond personnel were also very responsive and a pleasure to deal with. I didn’t have to keep after them to get important information. Our experience has been so positive that I am keeping my eyes open for other applications where we may be able to use Sonobond ultrasonic bonding units in the future.”

“We had been using a 20-year-old Sonobond machine and were very pleased. We knew there were other assembly methods. But, unlike ultrasonics, these other methods were less efficient and used consumables. We didn’t want that. When we contacted Sonobond to replace a manual we’d lost, they recognized that a new, customized unit could help us improve our existing processes.
“We’ve gotten outstanding results from our customized SonoWeld® 1600. We were also very pleased with Sonobond’s personalized service and fast turnaround. All of our questions were answered, the training was excellent, and the requested spare-parts quote was sent out immediately. It just doesn’t get much better than that.”
