Dukane Corporation will be featuring ail its latest products at NPE2015. All these innovations are to give plastic part manufacturers more flexibility, efficient process control, and significant cost reduction.
On display will be New iQ Series i220 Integrated Servo Ultrasonic Welder with patented Melt-Match[R] technology. This is a self-contained unit that houses Dukane's patented iQ Series Generator and addresses the need of an "out of box" "plug and play" servo-driven Ultrasonic Welder. This machine provides the efficiency and reliability of a 100% digitally controlled, Multi-Core iQ Series power supply with the precision of an advanced servo press.
Dukane's patented Melt-Match[R] technology precisely controls the collapse speed profile during the weld and precisely matches the collapse speed during the melt phase. Thus, the ultrasonic propagation penetrates deeper into the bond area and the affected heat zone is larger, resulting in superior bond strength.
Other new products on display will include iQLinQ[TM], a proprietary communication protocol designed to give end users an array of options to interface Ultrasonic generators with automated systems, and iQLogiX[TM], an optional module to simplify the configuration of work cells.
Dukane is also presenting a paper at ANTEC[R] on "Round Energy Director Design for Ultrasonic Welding" processes. "Round ED" will provide plastic part manufacturers with a more robust design that eliminates variability associated with inconsistent shape, size, and melt characteristics of prevailing sharp ED design.
