Since cycle time, change over and downtime are three factors that affect manufacturing efficiency, the HiQ Dialog looks to optimize those factors.
The HiQ Dialog has a programmable stroke selection that can be adjusted for needed weld tasks and the sizes of the applications being welded. The SoftTouch mode reduces damage to sensitive joins by bringing a quick approach with a gentle touch to applications, according to the company. It also features a quick-change system and an optional hinged tool change cover that helps quickly mount the ultrasonic stack in less than a minute.
HiQ Dialog also features a DataRecorder that is used for recording and archiving all weld process values and process parameters. The software meets FDA 21CFR Part 11 criteria and allows for user authentication and a documented audit trail of activities.
Hermann Ultrasonics welding also uses 75% less energy than thermal joining processes. The ultrasonic vibrations are applied to joint areas for milliseconds during welding. The Ultraplast digital ultrasonic generator has a high degree of efficiency at over 80% when powered using up to 6,200 W.
Hermann Ultrasonics will be showcasing its HiQ Dialog at MD&M Minneapolis on Nov. 8 and Nov. 9 at booth #1646.
