Auxiliaries AT NPE: New Controls Link Auxiliaries
Industry 4.0—the internet of things—is bringing a new level of connectivity to auxiliary equipment. Here’s a rundown of developments there, along with other news in auxiliaries from the show.

AUXILIARIES AT NPE: More Control, Flexibility, And Efficiency
These are key trends in the many kinds of auxiliary equipment displayed at this month’s show. You’ll also see equipment designed to be virtually ‘foolproof.’

WELDING: Ultrasonic Stepper Motor Welder With Touch-Panel Technology
Debuting at NPE 2015 is the new Sonics & Materials ultrasonic stepper motor welder featuring a unified controller and power supply.

Auxiliaries at NPE: New Solutions from Material Preparation To Post-Mold Operations
There will be an extraordinary range of new auxiliary equipment on display at the show.

High-Precision Ultrasonic Welder
In May, we reported that Sonics & Materials Inc., Newtown, Conn., would introduce at NPE its new e-Press ultrasonic welder, designed to provide precise, repeatable welds to the exact final dimensions of a part.

Hand-Held Sonic Welder With Digital Control

Hand-Held Sonic Welder With Digital Control
Microprocessor controls on two new hand-held ultrasonic welders from Sonics & Materials Inc., Newtown, Conn., allow the devices to be set to weld with digital time and/or energy control.

Ultrasonic Welder Boasts Space-Saving Design
More details are available on the new X-Press 20-kHz integrated ultrasonic welder introduced at NPE 2006 by Sonics & Materials Inc., Newtown, Conn.

Isolated FEA

Solve Ultrasonic Horn Problems With Finite-Element Analysis
 Computer modeling with 3D finite-element analysis (FEA) is used in the plastics industry because it can identify stresses, predict performance, and analyze part failures that can often be missed by traditional 2D modeling methods.

What to See at NPE 2006: Welding, Bonding and Assembly
Systems integration and compact size will be central themes of welding exhibits at NPE, where a wide range of new products will be displayed.

Ultrasonic Generators Are More Powerful
The new GX series ultrasonic power supplies from Sonics & Materials Inc., Newtown, Conn., are said to offer advances in control, power, and ease of use.

Leister's Globo system

Plastics Welding: Laser and Infrared Systems Expand Capabilities
A breakthrough in laser welding of three-dimensional parts that eliminates traditional clamping systems was among several innovations in welding and joining highlighted at two recent shows—last month’s Plastics USA in Chicago and this month’s K 2004 in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Open Loop Weld By Time

How to Use Those Fancy Ultrasonic Welding Controls
You know how to set a timer, but newer ultrasonic welders also offer control by energy, collapse distance, and absolute distance. Do you know when and how to exploit these options to make better welds?

Welder Is Super-Rigid For Extra Precision
Model 2050 is a 20-kHz ultrasonic welder designed to minimize deflection for precise joining of sensitive parts.

NPE Assembled Plenty of News In Welding, Bonding & Fastening
Electric servo-drive technology, new controls, larger-part capability, and ability to handle lower viscosity resins were some of the themes echoed in the new group of welding, bonding, and joining devices exhibited last month at NPE 2000 in Chicago. Also shown were two new approaches to laser welding, a new adhesive that cures in UV or visible light, and new tape adhesives for gasketing or hard-to-bond applications. Two new mechanical devices, including an automated insert-setting device for plastics, were also shown.
