A new semi-automated ultrasonic welding station from Herrmann Ultrasonics is designed for easy welding of catheters for the medical market by a single operator.

The loading and unloading are accomplished at the operator station. The operator loads the parts to be assembled in a fixture. The introducer hub nests in the fixture with the rest of the part hanging down; the dial-plate rotates to the weld station where the cap is ultrasonically welded onto the hub. The optional subsequent station on the dial plate places a precisely measured amount of lubricant into the hub, and the finished assembly is rotated around to the operator for unloading.

The welding station includes a 1,000-watt, 35 kHz, Herrmann Ultrasonics Dialog digital control ultrasonic welder. Built into the 12-inch color touchscreen controller is an industrial computer, running Windows XP, to facilitate the welding process control. All welding processes are electronically controlled and programmed through the Dialog controller.

The machine’s footprint is 800mm by 900mm.
