The Net Value of the Ultrasonic Metal Welding Process

There are many factors to consider when deciding on a metal joining method including its tangible and intangible features. Depending on the application, the investment will vary based on joining design, materials to be welded, geometrical shapes, dimensions and sizes, environmental effects, and the mechanical and electrical integrity that the given product demands. It’s not possible to address all joining applications within a single article, so we’ll highlight the automotive wiring harness industry and products to clarify the differences in crimping, soldering, ultrasonic, laser, and resistance welding.

In some cases, ultrasonic welding is the only solution or may not be feasible at all. However, no matter how many variables are being considered in the selection of the joining method, ultrasonic welding seems to offer a better long-term return on investment than all other viable processes.
