A201.0, 20 kHz Aluminum Rigid Mount Ultrasonic Booster
An ultrasonic booster is used to modify the amplitude level to the ultrasonic horn for a given plastic assembly application. PATSONICS offers aluminum rigid mount ultrasonic boosters without spanner wrench holes. Boosters without spanner wrench holes result in a reduction of stress and provide for aluminum boosters that are less prone to fail. The boosters are specified by the amount of gain they increase the motion that is produced at by the ultrasonic converter. The A201.0 aluminum booster ratio is 1.0:1, resulting in no gain, but still an important element to couple the converter to the booster. The rigid mount design reduces deflection during the ultrasonic welding process providing for less potential variation during welding. The boosters are designed to fit in Branson or Dukane ultrasonic welders using 3.250″ diameter ring mounts.
