Place of Origin:
Ultrasonic vibrations produced by piezoelectric ceramic elements can be used to generate heat to weld or melt thermoplastics.Ultrasonic transducer to be used in a welding application the longitudinal vibrations on the end of the transducer need to be amplified and concentrated onto a small surface area. This is accomplished through the use of an amplitude transformer, or horn, manufactured from a titanium or aluminum alloy.
In ultrasonic welding, the horn is brought into contact with one piece of thermoplastic that is to be joined to another piece. Pressure is applied to the two pieces of thermoplastic and the ultrasonic vibrations pass through the first piece to the interface with the second piece. Frictional heat at this interface will melt the material and once the vibrations stop, the temperature drops, and the plastic solidifies the two pieces of plastic will have bonded together.Power ultrasound is used for industrial welding of plastics and bonding of minute wires in semiconductor chip manufacturing
Using ultrasonic transducers for welding is beneficial because it is:
– Fast and efficient
– Produces a strong bond
– Eliminates the use of solvents and adhesives
– and Heat generated is confined and thus rapidly dissipated
Ultrasonic Welding: Ultrasonic welding machines utilize 20 kHz transducers to generate high-frequency vibrations that create friction and heat at the interface of the materials being joined. This heat causes the materials to melt and fuse together, creating a strong bond.
Non-Destructive Testing: Ultrasonic transducers operating at 20 kHz are also used in non-destructive testing (NDT) applications. They emit ultrasonic waves into the material being inspected, and the reflections and echoes of these waves are analyzed to detect defects, measure thickness, or determine material properties.
Material Processing: In certain material processing applications, 20 kHz ultrasonic transducers can be used for tasks like cutting, drilling, and welding plastics, textiles, or other materials. The high-frequency vibrations provide precision and control in these processes.
Design and Construction: The design and construction of a 20 kHz ultrasonic transducer may vary depending on the specific application and requirements. It typically consists of a piezoelectric element, such as piezoceramic or piezopolymer, that converts electrical energy into mechanical vibrations. The transducer may also include backing materials, electrodes, and an acoustic matching layer to enhance performance.
