PowerWheel® uses a new kind of sonotrode oscillating behaviour that is stimulated by a torsional resonator. The welding movement takes place in a rocking, rolling movement directly into the welding. This ensures the maximum amplitude is always in the centre of the welding surface and the power can be applied precisely. For example, with wire strand connections, the PowerWheel® technology allows the welding splices to be welded higher and up to 30% narrower, without losing strength in the process. The PowerWheel® technology permits savings in material, installation area and costs.
Applications and industries
The robust MPX HD ultrasonic welding press is used for applications of all sizes. With a pressing force of 4.5 kN and a welding power of 6.5 kW, the entire range in strand terminal welding is covered perfectly. This machine is particularly suited for high-voltage applications with copper and aluminium wires as well as for battery applications with up to 85 mm2 aluminium and 60 mm2 copper wires. The MPX HD press is best suited for series production in the automotive industry.
