Ultrasonic welders from MS Plastic Welders, Fowlerville, Mich., utilize a new quick-tool-change device for assembly of automotive door panels, consoles, and other assemblies. The MS Cartridge is interchangeable and allows tool changeovers in less than 5 min. This is said to be particularly effective for short runs, and it can replace several plastic welders dedicated to specific assemblies. MS Plastic Welders, a supplier of ultrasonic staking and spot-welding units and hot-plate welders, will open a new facility in Fowlerville in early 2009. (517) 223-1059 • www.msplastic welders.com
