Aurizon's rotary ultrasonic processing technology offers an alternative to compression, thermal, and adhesive bonding systems as well as other types of existing ultrasonic technologies used in many converting processes.
Our state-of-the-art rotary technology and precision manufacturing enables high-speed processing without contact, delivering bonding or cutting while virtually eliminating wear and tear on the equipment. By utilizing patented rigid mounted horn and anvil designs as well as a comprehensive systems approach, this technology delivers high amplitude radial expansion to create rapid compression of materials passing through an in-running nip. The cross-direction uniformity of this radial expansion ensures that the effect on the materials across the width of the processing region is consistent.
With four different rotary ultrasonic platforms to offer, each with different footprints and multiple configurations, Aurizon’s rotary technology can be integrated into a variety of end-use applications. These systems can be customized to integrate existing or newly developed processes.
Aurizon's rotary ultrasonic technology can impact and improve a variety of market and process applications, including:
- Personal care/hygiene converting
- Medical or healthcare product manufacturing
- Food or consumer product packaging
- Embossing or die cutting materials in a wide range of basis weights
- A variety of specialty textile and non-woven applications
- Substantial productivity increases due to higher speed
- Reduced raw material usage or eliminate process contamination (e.g., adhesives)
- Decreased equipment maintenance (e.g., non-contact system)
- Bonding non-conventional materials (e.g., polylactic acid films)
- Simultaneous processing (e.g., bonding and cutting)
Aurizon's rotary ultrasonic technology is capable of high-speed bonding or die cutting
of many diverse materials.
