Ultrasonic welding is one of the most widely used processes for bonding polymers, valued for its speed, flexibility, and low cost. Recently there has been a call for more controlled and consistent welding processes, especially in the medical field. Dukane has worked to meet this demand through the development of a new iQ series Servo-Driven Ultrasonic Welder with MeltMatch™ technology. Careful comparison, detailed here, has shown that the servo-driven welder can provide more consistent results than the standard pneumatic welder can. The newly developed welder also offers a number of user friendly ergonomic features, superior Graphic User Interface with Ethernet connectivity (iQ Explorer) as well as more accurate process control capabilities.
