SONOTRONIC at Fakuma 2015

In the ECOFLEX series SONOTRONIC is now also offering compact, welding booths that can be adapted to customer requirements needs for ultrasonically welding small and medium-size components, where several welding operations have to be prepared in parallel or in sequence. The ECOFLEX series fits into SONOTRONIC’s product portfolio between the ECO iSONIC standard ultrasonic machines and the special machines. The concept of the ECOFLEX series is based on a compact, standard basic machine with predefined electrical and mechanical components. Contract implementation merely requires the construction of an individual work room, thereby making short delivery times possible. Vertical lifting units or small horizontal sliding tables can be incorporated to improve accessibility. Optimal heating or infra-red elements are also available.

As a supplement to ultrasonic spot riveting, SONOTRONIC also exhibited, for the first time at Fakuma, the newly designed infra-red spot riveting unit. SONOTRONIC has already incorporated the infra-red riveting process in several customised installations in close co-operation with customers, both in hybrid machines with ultrasound and infra-red and in special infrared machines.

During live demonstrations at the stand, visitors can also see for themselves the welding results and the power of the ECO iSONIC standard ultrasonic machines, the ultrasonic roll-seam module and the ultrasonic punching unit. Our fair team was heavily committed, particular during the first three days, when visitor numbers were very high.

Next year Fakuma will take a break and the industry will get together from 19th to 26th October 2016 at the international trade fair for Plastics and Rubber, the K in Düsseldorf. SONONTRONIC will be there for you again. In the meantime, our Karlsbad site or our international branches and agents will be happy to advise you.
