ECOFLEX iSONIC – Compact welding cabin with exchangeable tool cassette

The new ultrasonic welding cabin, ECOFLEX iSONIC, is available as a completely revised concept. The highlight here is first and foremost the working area: Individually tailored to match the application in question, it is now integrated as an interchangeable tool cassette in the cabin. The replacement of the cassette can be performed both from the operating side and also from the rear side of the machine.

The tool cassette has a modular structure and is equipped with 20, 30 or 35 kHz ultrasonic technology for surface, piercing and rivet type joints. Also, small punching applications can be implemented. For this SONOTRONIC uses its own highly developed ultrasonic components. All ultrasonic components as well as the holding tools are developed and produced in our own production facilities based on the workpiece CAD data. Likewise, programming of the PLC control and remote maintenance is performed directly in-house.

The ECOFLEX iSONIC enables changing over of the working area, which is fitted by default as a tool cassette, from either the front or rear side. This means that multiple workpieces can be processed in individual working areas on one and the same machine. Alongside storage space in production, this is a primary saver of investment costs. With a tool change trolley and smooth-running ball bearings in the machine interior, the tool cassette can be changed quickly and ergonomically. The insertion or removal of the tool cassette can be performed via both the operating and rear side. To do so, both sides have wide opening areas, which is also helpful for maintenance.
