Branson: Hand-held ultrasonic welding systems

Designed for power applications of up to 550 watts, Branson’s new Low Power Unit (LPX) platform for ultrasonic welding systems has a number of new user interface/process control features designed to make set up, configuration and navigation easier, including: an icon-based user interface; digital parameter entry; the ability to save and recall up to 10 presets; and a 1 millisecond data sampling rate.

The LXP features multiple weld modes, power levels and frequencies. The standard weld modes are continuous, time, and energy. It also is available with an optional factory-installed ground detect weld mode. The units are available in three frequencies: 20 kHz at 150 and 550 Watts; 30 kHz at 550 Watts; and 40 kHz at 150 and 550 Watts.

The LPX series hand-held ultrasonic welders are compact, lightweight tools used to spot weld or stake large, complex parts and those with hard-to-reach joint areas. Two types of hand-held welders are available: pistol grip (PT) and barrel grip (HT).

The LPX units can be used with their appropriate hand-held welder or can be connected directly to a converter/booster/horn stack.  The units utilize Branson’s patented circuitry with closed loop amplitude control to provide maximum process control.
