Delivering high value process solutions for material bonding, package sealing, and a variety of specialty applications...

Rotary Processing

Bonding

Ultrasonic bonding is the process of using high-frequency compression/relaxation of materials against specially designed anvil patterns that cause them to heat at the molecular level and melt. This process enables the materials to flow around the shapes of the anvil and adhere to each other and to other materials that are in the web matrix.
 
Features/Benefits include:

  • Enables bonding/sealing of materials without the use of heat or costly adhesives
  • Highly energy efficient
  • Capable of sealing through non-thermoplastic materials

Cutting

Ultrasonic cutting is accomplished by using high-frequency vibration against an anvil with a specially designed continuous edge that causes materials to melt away and separate from each other.

 

Features/Benefits include:

  • High-precision process control enables effective cutting of very lightweight nonwoven webs and films
  • Horns made from durable materials can enable long cutting life and process durability
  • Complex shapes, angles, and cross sectional cuts can be effectively achieved on a variety of materials

Elastic Entrapment

Elastic strands are sandwiched between layers of materials while they are elongated so that the extended fibers are thinned and fall within specially designed anvil channels as the materials are bonded around them.

 

Features/Benefits include:

  • Capable of entrapping broad range of elastics at very high speeds (>1500 fpm)
  • Effectively secures the elastics into structures without the need for costly adhesives
  • Virtually eliminates elastic creep in the finished product
  • Robust process design continuously captures elastic strands even if they break

Embossing

Similar to bonding, embossing is achieved by manipulating the anvil pattern to melt materials in a way that imparts a pattern into the surface of the materials.

 

Features/Benefits include:

  • Capable of achieving high speeds (>1500 fpm) on a variety of materials
  • Intricate patterns are possible
  • Able to effectively emboss through lofty materials in continuous and/or intermittent processes

Laminating

Similar to bonding, laminating is achieved by using a low-density anvil pattern to tack materials together while leaving the majority of the web open for other functional attributes (e.g. absorbency.)

 

Features/Benefits include:

  • Excellent for high-speed laminating narrow webs (<2”) together

Scoring

Ultrasonic scoring is similar to cutting with the exception that the depth the anvil penetrates into the material is purposely limited so as to not exceed the thickness of the material. Scoring can either be achieved on thermoplastic materials where the score is set with a partial melt of the surface of the material or in a non-thermoplastic material where the scoring is due to a high-frequency mechanical severing of material (e.g. fibers) at the surface.

 

Features/Benefits include:

  • Highly precise and controllable
  • Enables scoring without the use of heat
  • Energy efficient

Sealing

Ultrasonic sealing is the process of using high-frequency compression/relaxation of materials against specially designed anvil patterns that cause them to heat at the molecular level and melt. This process enables the materials to flow around the shapes of the anvil and adhere to each other and to other materials in the web matrix.

Custom Applications

Our rotary ultrasonic systems can be configured in a variety of ways to provide unique capabilities and enable processes that may not currently exist. Some of these include:

  • Split-head systems for spanning across wide webs
  • Multi-head systems for processing multiple lanes and/or cross sectional patterns on webs
  • Intermittent- and continuous-motion cross sealing
