Dukane’s patented Melt-Detect™ technology demonstrated.

Check out this video to learn about Dukane’s patented Melt-Detect™ technology for Servo driven Ultrasonic Welding process. This technology ensures complete initiation of melt in the contact area of plastic assembly, before prompting the press to initiate downward movement. This improves weld strength and reduces stress in the welded assembly.

Ultrasonic Welding from Dukane in regards to the Medical Field

A quick update on advancements in the field of ultrasonic welding from Dukane, who we represent locally.

Ultrasonic plastic welding is the joining or reforming of thermoplastics through the use of heat generated from high-frequency mechanical motion. During the process, high-frequency electrical energy is converted into high-frequency mechanical motion, which in conjunction with applied force, creates frictional heat at the plastic components’ mating surfaces (joint area) and melts to create a molecular bond between the parts. To see an illustration of the basic principle of ultrasonic welding, click below.


What you may not know, is that Dukane is leading the industry with its patented Servo Actuated ultrasonic systems. This technology is exclusive to Dukane and has resulted in very significant improvements in joint strength, flash control, part to part repeatability and consistency. Oh, and the price? It is comparable to our competitor’s “high end” pneumatic solutions, which have not appreciably changed in 20 years!

The Dukane iQ Servo Welder has helped hundreds of our customers improve their production yields, quality, and their bottom line.

We are sure that you will benefit from this technology and look forward to discussing it with you – call us (203 881 3013) for either a phone or in-plant consultation, or visit our resident expert Mark Iannantuoni at our showroom in Wallingford CT for an in-person demo.

Dukane Servo Ultrasonics in the Medical Industry

This video demonstrates single step process of cutting and sealing a thin membrane in a medical device component using Dukane’s iQ Servo Ultrasonic Welding system. The welding surface is 4.1 mm wide and 9.5 mm long. Constant or variable speed programming available in iQ Servo allows users to match the melt rate of the material as it becomes molted. This provides greater strength, significantly reduces variation and flash. Force is not only monitored it is controlled. As you watch the video, you will see other unique parameter settings only available with iQ Servo. With the most precise velocity and position control available in the industry, Dukane gives you the tools you need to improve your Ultrasonic Welding process. Whether you are looking to measurably improve the result of your process or virtually eliminate part-to-part variation iQ Servo is your answer.
