Model HS2000 Hydrosnubber for Branson 900AE/AES or 2000AE/AES Ultrasonic 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. Instructions are provided for mounting the HS2000 Hydrosnubber to the Branson actuator. The HS2000 Hydrosnubber is designed to work with the Branson 900 or 2000 series AE/AES ultrasonic welders.
