Special and standard machines for the processing of plastics
With the expertise gained from more than 2,200 realized projects for the automotive industry, SONOTRONIC operates at the forefront of the market. We develop and manufacture customer-specific special machines for joining and punching thermoplastics for individual parts in automotive interiors and exteriors.
As an internationally active company, we are the market leader in the automotive industry in the field of plastics processing with ultrasonic. From standard machines for the production of small batches, to special machines for high-cycle series production, to fully automated flexible production lines, we offer individual solutions for welding and punching tasks tailored to our customers.
Reliable joining technologies
For the processing of thermoplastic materials such as PP, PC, PA, ABS, PMMA or ASA as well as blends of PP-EPDM, PC/ABS, PC/PBT or composite materials, for example, textile/PUR, slush/PUR/ABS, we rely on innovative ultrasonic technology. For special tasks, infrared, hot plate and hot air technology are also used.
Ultrasonic technology is characterized by excellent properties such as short process times, low energy consumption and high reproducibility of welding and punching results. In addition, ultrasonic can also be used to efficiently and extremely gently process particularly high-quality plastics, such as those frequently found in the automotive industry.
Ultrasonic punching - can be combined with other processes
After ultrasonic welding machines have proven themselves for various applications in the automotive industry, SONOTRONIC has projected the advantages of ultrasonic to punching as well, thus creating new paths. With simultaneous flexibility, the highest possible punching quality is achieved with the patented process using ultrasonic technology.
Depending on the requirements, we combine processes such as punching, riveting, embossing, gluing, and screwing in one system or develop flexible production lines for fully comprehensive assembly, which are freely configurable due to their modular design.
Worldwide service and sales
In the automotive industry in particular, a global service and sales network is of crucial importance. SONOTRONIC is represented worldwide, ensuring fast and flexible response times.
