Ultrasonic Welding - Hicks Plastics Company, Inc.

Ultrasonic Welding:

Ultrasonic Welding has many advantages over other plastic-joining processes:

  1. Lower cost
  2. Repeatability - welding usually occurs in less than a second
  3. Cleaner process - no consumables required, less risk of contamination

Ultrasonic welding is one of the most common welding processes used today:

     • Fast and efficient
     • Produces weld that are free of flash
     • Suitable for high volume production
     • Uses no caustic chemicals and produces few fumes

Hicks Plastics implements the most innovative technologies in Ultrasonic Welding techniques:

Ultrasonic welding uses the potential energy within the plastic itself, converting it to heat and sound:

     • Continued motion heats and softens the plastics
     • Vibrations weld plastic surfaces together
     • Tongue and groove joint design and location is very important in ultrasonic welding

Rapid development of the ultrasonic welding machine has occurred in the last ten years. Basic functions
are computer controlled for greater accuracy and reliablity, such as:

     • Weld Energy
     • Trigger force
     • Pressure
