When dealing with plastics, numerous factors can impact your weld, from ultrasonic tooling to the frequency used. To get the best weld, you need to make sure you have a thorough grasp of the following factors.
Typically, ultrasonic welding is done with a frequency of 15 to 40 kHz. However, many parameters can be used to determine the best frequency for the product you have, and adhering to these will make your welding experience much easier.
Obviously, thermoplastics are the best type of materials for ultrasonic welding because they melt. Using thermosetting materials is never a good idea because they will degrade when exposed to heat and make this process more complex.
3. Joint Design
One of the most critical aspects of welding is the joint design. It should be considered as early as the design stage for the product. Despite the advances in ultrasonic welding
