PATSONICS ULTRASONIC HORNS
Plastic Assembly Technologies (PATSONICS) manufactures ultrasonic horns at a multiple of frequencies, shapes and sizes for all brands of ultrasonic welders. The most common frequencies for ultrasonic welding are 15, 20, 30, 35 and 40 kHz.
Patsonics makes ultrasonic horns from different raw materials based upon acoustical and mechanical properties for your specific application needs. Titanium, aluminum, CPM and tool steels are the materials most commonly used for manufacturing ultrasonic horns. The material selected for your horn is based upon what works best for your application and your programs requirements. Titanium provides excellent tensile strength and is a good choice for high gain applications, but an expensive choice because the material is costly and takes significantly more time to machine. Titanium is often used for circular horns up to 3.5" in diameter and for standard rectangular sizes up to 2.5" x 10". The size of your part and the area to be welded will play a role in the type of horn material to be used for your application.
Patsonics manufactures a wide range of ultrasonic horns. Patsonics has used FEA (Finite Element Analysis) in the design of many of our standard ultrasonic horns. Standard ultrasonic types used are catenoidal round, exponential round, stepped round, circular solid, circular high gain, circular hollow, circular slotted, spool horns, rectangular with round corners, rectangular with square corners, rectangular slotted and rectangular block horns. Special functions like knurled faces, cavities, contour surfacing and spot welding tips can be added to these common ultrasonic horn types to make them "special" for a given application. At Patsonics, we work in standard types and styles to customize it for your specific application.
