Ultrasonic Bonder

November 30, -0001

Sonobond Ultrasonics’ SeamMaster High Profile Ultrasonic Bonder has won praise for exceptional performance and cost-efficiency from Velcon Filters, a leading manufacturer of jet fuel filters. According to Sonobond’s president, Janet Devine, “Velcon reports that our Sonobond ultrasonic bonding equipment is making a major contribution to speeding the production, while lowering maintenance and labor costs. Velcon had us install our unit at its facility in Sylacauga, AL a few months ago. We are pleased that this is yet another example of how our ultrasonic bonding technology can make filtration assembly easier and more cost-efficient.”

According to Rob Perkins, manager of process engineering at Velcon’s Syla­cauga facility, the new Sonobond unit is used to bond two filtration components that are integral to commercial and military jet fuel handling. As a result of switching from sewing machines to Sono­bond’s ultrasonic technology, the company has seen very positive results. He explains, “The Sonobond unit replaced two industrial sewing machines. Those machines processed only about 20 feet of material per minute. But our Sonobond SeamMaster High Profile Ultrasonic Bonder runs approximately 30 or 40 feet per minute. That means our Sonobond bonder is definitely boosting efficiency, while reducing labor costs.”
