Dukane is a global leader in designing and manufacturing high speed ultrasonic bonding & cutting equipment. Our rotary ultrasonic horns, rigid horns & blades, and automation ready ultrasonic generators offer clean, consistent and fast processing for joining and cutting nonwoven materials.
Our patented Rotary Ultrasonic bonding technology provides high-speed continuous or intermittent bonding of nonwoven materials. Manufacturers get the following benefits by using rotary ultrasonic bonding technology:
Higher productivity with high speed rotary technology (800 meters/minute) and lower process delay time
Reduces material weight by eliminating adhesive
Reduces equipment maintenance costs by eliminating adhesive delivery systems from the process
Energy savings by eliminating adhesive dispensing systems (heater and pump)
Suitable for many different applications including fin and lap sealing, tube forming, bonding, feature attachment, embossing, sheet lamination, cutting, and slitting.
Ultrasonic bonding or sealing technology offers unique solutions for a variety of applications in medical disposable, hygiene, and personal care industry.
•Face Mask Bonding:Intermittent or continuous bonding useful in the production of face masks can be achieved. This includes the ability to bond around rigid parts (e.g., metal nose bands) and bond non-thermoplastic components like cotton and elastic components into other face mask materials.
• Garment Seaming:The rotary bonding system can be used to make intricate seams on medical disposable garments where a continuous seam without holes is required.
• Elastic Attachment:Rotary ultrasonic horn provides a robust, high-speed process for creating elasticized materials and eliminates the need for costly and messy adhesives. Products can range from narrow containment flaps up to large side panels and can be constructed with lighter-weight materials without concern for adhesive bleed-through
• Ear Construction & Attachment: High-speed attachment of multiple components used in the construction of ears or intermittently placed ear attachments used on diapers and other hygiene/personal care articles without the need for adhesives.
• Leg Cuff Attachment & Construction:Provides high-speed and precise location of the attachment of leg cuff materials to the chassis of a product either in a continuous or intermittent manner and enables high-speed, continuous construction of leg cuff materials without the need to apply costly adhesives
