Rinco Ultrasonics Debuting New Ultrasonic Generator, Welding Machine at NPE 2018
Rinco Ultrasonics USA will launch its new AGM Pro ultrasonic generator at NPE 2018, May 7-11 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida (Booth #W5373).
The new ultrasonic generator is designed to be built into automation lines and special-purpose machines for controlling ultrasonic components. The digital, Industry 4.0-capable AGM Pro, is an upgraded version of Rinco’s current AGM ultrasonic generator and is perfectly suited for semi-automated and automated applications mostly for the automotive, packaging and food cutting industries.
“We took our most popular generator that originated as a culmination of our top customers’ requests and did it once again,” says Gordon Hull, U.S. managing director of Rinco Ultrasonics. “This time we took years of collected data and built a new version of the AGM from the ground up that will revolutionize the way the industry integrates ultrasonics into their assembly machinery.”
Like its predecessor, this completely redeveloped ultrasonic generator boasts a narrow design, has smaller dimensions and is almost 50 percent lighter. Due to its smaller size, the AGM Pro installs perfectly in electrical cabinets, where depth and height dimensions are most restricted. The digital inputs and outputs are clearly arranged and are easy to connect. It primarily differs from its predecessor in terms of parameter input and process analysis and, unlike its predecessor, is capable of storing up to 16 parameter sets. Welding parameters can also be defined using the integrated 3.1-in color touch-screen display as well as through a mobile terminal or PC using a specially developed AGM Pro web application. The AGM Pro generator is typically driven via PLC but can also be used as a stand-alone pre-programmed unit. .
The company will also launch its new Electrical Motion ultrasonic welding machine at NPE. The new machine, available in 20 kHz and 35 kHz frequencies, represents a move away from traditional pneumatic type press systems to electrically driven machines, according to Hull, managing director of Rinco Ultrasonics.
“This is a high-value addition to our product line,” he says. “It helps push the limits of what our customers can achieve in weld quality and repeatability.”
The Electrical Motion welding system enables users to finely regulate the weld, using precise positioning of the horn, along with the applied welding force to the welding rate. This means considerably better results in welding, punching, cutting, and sealing of molded thermoplastic parts, non-wovens, and synthetic textiles.
