Using ultrasonic technology to laminate textiles offers numerous distinct advantages.
Multiple layers of textiles, ranging from 2 layers to 7 layers or more, can be bonded in a single pass and at high speed, making ultrasonic laminating very cost effective.
Very different materials with very different characteristics, such as physical strength, permeability of liquids or gases, and melt temperatures can be precisely bonded to form high performance composites.
Highly uniform and consistent textile composites can be manufactured without the degradation of the individual materials due to excess heat, pressure or chemical attack.
The point bonding of Ultrasonic Lamination only closes permeable materials at those specific weld points. Most of the area of the material retains its original performance.
Precision bonding can be defined to meet exact customer needs in terms of location, frequency, or pattern.
Ultrasonic Lamination is A Truly Green Process!
No adhesives or other chemicals are used in ultrasonic lamination. Only the original raw materials are present in the textile composite allowing for recycling in most cases. The process is ideal for health care, filtration and other applications where potential contamination is a concern.
The technical team at Beckmann Converting has a stellar track record of engineering solutions for implementing ultrasonic technology to laminate material combinations that have long been considered to be "unbondable". By reviewing raw materials, gaining an understanding of the end use of the laminate, and making hand samples, optimal production processes can be designed.
