Ultrasonic knifes have held wide indentation in the textile and food industries in recent years. Ultrasonic cutting systems can be used for the precise clipping of textiles, rubber, thermoplastic foil, woven and non-woven fabrics, as well as various kinds of food. There are both mobile handheld units and systems that can be integrated into automated machinery.
The advantages of ultrasonic vibrating blades are: very precise cuts, pressure-free cutting, whereby a deformation of the cutted material (e.g. cake) can be avoided, simultaneous welding of the cutting edge of certain materials, very high cutting speeds and significantly reduced cleaning costs.
