Resonant systems for ultrasonic processing of plastics improve efficiency and quality 

For milling and cutting brittle lightweight materials, new solutions such as resonant systems from Weber Ultrasonics and Hufschmied Zerspanungswerkzeuge shorten processing times, extend tool life and improve accuracy by using significantly reduced process forces. With these systems, milling work done by industrial robots remains within tolerance ranges similar to those for machine tools. 

 

The use of lightweight materials such as fiber-reinforced plastics, composites and stacks with cores of foam or honeycomb structures demands frequently modified processing solutions. Ultrasonic systems for milling, cutting and sawing provide adaptable and efficient processes.

Non-resonant systems generally used today convert only about five percent of input energy into vibrations.  In contrast, the resonant ultrasonic systems jointly developed by Hufschmied Zerspanungssysteme GmbH and Weber Ultrasonics AG achieve an efficiency rate of 90 to 95 percent. Among other things, the systems use significantly reduced process forces. In the processing of glass fiber and carbon, for example, the material removal rate is higher, resulting in higher material throughput and reduced machine working time. In addition, the tool life is increased through decreased strain or deformity of the tools. Processes are thus made more efficient.

Greater processing accuracy also can be achieved in ultrasonic milling with the new resonant systems. Delicate workpieces, for instance, can be manufactured with gantry systems. Furthermore, it is possible to use industrial robots as economical and flexible alternatives for the implementation of an automated production process. The feasible production tolerances lie within the relative accuracy range of classic machine tools.

Hi there, I believe your site may be having internet browser compatibility problems.
Whenever I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in I.E., it’s
got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a
quick heads up! Other than that, excellent blog!

Hi! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I
came to give it a look. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m
book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers!

Wonderful blog and fantastic design.

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

The design look great though! Hope you get
the issue resolved soon. Cheers

I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up!
I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back later.
Many thanks

I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog.
Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year and am
concerned about switching to another platform. I have
heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress
content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

Usually I do not learn post on blogs, however I would like
to say that this write-up very pressured me to take a look
at and do it! Your writing style has been amazed me.
Thank you, very nice post.

I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

Hey are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my
own. Do you need any coding expertise to make your own blog?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

hey there and thank you for your information – I’ve certainly picked up anything
new from right here. I did however expertise some technical issues using this website, since I experienced to
reload the site lots of times previous to I could get it to load properly.

I had been wondering if your hosting is OK?
Not that I am complaining, but sluggish loading instances times will sometimes affect your
placement in google and could damage your quality score if advertising and marketing with Adwords.
Anyway I’m adding this RSS to my email and can look out for much more of your respective fascinating
content. Make sure you update this again very soon.

What i don’t realize is in fact how you’re not actually a lot more neatly-appreciated than you might be now. You are so intelligent. You understand therefore considerably in terms of this topic, made me individually believe it from so many varied angles. Its like women and men don’t seem to be interested unless it’s one thing to do with Girl gaga! Your individual stuffs outstanding. Always handle it up!

Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring on other sites?

I have a blog based on the same ideas you discuss and would
love to have you share some stories/information. I
know my viewers would value your work. If you are even remotely interested,
feel free to send me an e-mail.

Hi, i feel that i noticed you visited my website so i
came to return the prefer?.I’m trying to in finding things to improve
my website!I guess its adequate to use a few of your concepts!!
