SONOTRONIC GmbH. Linked with success.
With innovative strength and quality awareness, SONOTRONIC develop and produce special machines, standard machines, assemblies and components for the processing of plastics. Our experience in joining plastics makes us your specialist for ultrasonic welding, but also punching, riveting, embossing and cutting with ultrasonic – and this since 1974. Alternatively and also as a hybrid solution, the processes hot plate, infrared or hot air are used.
Specialist in the construction of special machines for ultrasonic welding
We are market leader in mechanical engineering for special machines in the automotive industry. Our machines are used worldwide for joining and punching plastic parts in automotive exteriors and interiors at well-known OEMs. We realize concepts for one-man operation up to automated production lines. In addition, we develop and produce for all plastic processing industries, the packaging industry, the food industry, for the textile industry and the environmental industry.
Dürkopp Adler Group has announced the acquisition of SONOTRONIC Nagel GmbH, a leading company in automated ultrasonic welding technology. The purchase agreement was signed on April 28th, 2023, with the transfer of the company set to take place on July 1st, 2023.
Joining technology is of particular importance for plastics processing. For joining injection molded parts and extruded plastic parts, we use ultrasonic, hot plate or hot air technology, depending on the application. We receive tasks from all areas of the plastics processing industries.
Our industry solutions
For automotive manufacturers and suppliers, we design and produce equipment for the processing of particularly high-quality plastics, such as those frequently found in the automotive industry. Did you know that? The best result when placing and welding holders for sensors in the inside of painted bumpers is achieved with ultrasonic. The paint is not damaged in the process.

With our machines and automated production lines, almost all series of automotive interior equipment can be produced. Combined with tool change concepts, parts with similar shapes can be produced cost-effectively. Our production lines with robots and linear conveyor systems are particularly economical, as various processing steps are realized in one cycle. Click here for more information!
Wherever injection molded parts and extruded plastic parts are used, the innovative ultrasonic technology, also combined with our alternative joining techniques, offers absolute process reliability. To ensure that the requirements for tightness and strength can be met in the series production process, we focus our attention on the design of the parts as well as the design of the joining zone.
