Model HSIW+ Hydrosnubber for Branson 900 or 2000 Series IW+ Welders.
Patsonics Hydrosnubbers are used to decelerate the ultrasonic actuator descent at the point of horn to part contact, resulting in controlled velocity during the ultrasonic operation. The benefit of using controlled part contact has been proven for many ultrasonic applications. The ability to precisely control the actuator descent during ultrasonic welding, staking, swaging or insertion applications has resulted in improved appearance, consistent results and better performance. Slowed control of the actuator descent results in a "soft touch" that is required for many applications. The Patsonics Hydrosnubbers can also be used to increase the actuator down speed prior to contacting the part, which results in an improved cycle rate. No drilling or tapping is required to install the HSIW+ Hydrosnubber on the Branson 900 or 2000 series integrated welders. The HSIW+ Hydrosnubber is designed to work with the Branson IW+ ultrasonic welders designed to weld to a distance.
