Ultrasonic Welding & Staking

What is Ultrasonic Welding?

Ultrasonic welding is the joining or reforming of thermoplastics. Heat generated using high-frequency sound waves and pressure bonds materials together. Mechanical motion, along with applied force, creates frictional heat. Therefore this allows melting of material and forms a bond. Ultrasonic technology requires less energy than conventional welding and offers many advantages.

Advantages

Ultrasonic welding and staking offers many advantages in various industries such as electrical, computer, automotive, medical and packing. These advantages offer process reliability and repeatability, performance speed and flexibility, energy, material, and labor savings.

Reliability and Repeatability

The ultrasonic welding process is primarily automated and only requires the welder to pull a lever or push a button to produce the ultrasonic weld. Since there are no visible seams which could detract the finished product, these welds are visually appealing.  Proper staking design strengthens the product and appearance with minimal or no flash. Ideally, this welding process creates reliable bonds without introducing any impurities or distortion to the components being welded. In other words, this repeatable process provides consistent results.

Performance speed and Flexibly

Despite higher initial investment, ultrasonic welding offers high processing speed and as a result, makes it very appealing for mass production. Ultrasonic welding typically has short cycle times of less than one second that can be achieved depending on the required welds.

Energy, Material, and Labor Savings

Ultrasonic welding requires no connective bolts or soldering materials to bind multiple pieces together. This saves on manufacturing and production costs. Ultrasonic staking eliminates consumable materials such as screws, rivets, bolts, nails or adhesives and provides the ability to perform multiple stakes with one horn.

Auto Film Cut-Off

  • Available on all 2000 series wrappers with powered pre-stretch (20″ film carriage only)
  • Automatically cuts the film at the end of wrap cycle
  • Decrease wrap time by 20 seconds per load
  • ROI at 25 loads per day = $520.00 annual savings ( 25 loads per day x $.083 per load x 250 working days per year)

 

Laser Marking Systems

Laser Marking Systems

Laser marking systems

Laser marking offers a broad range of processing abilities and takes place completely without contacting the part. These high-precision laser marking systems use a beam of light energy to create a mark on a part that can be of an image, text, logos, barcodes, UID codes, or QR codes. Various materials may be laser marked or labeled such as plastics, acrylics, foam, wood, leather, glass, rubber, cloth or metals. This fast, clean technology offers many advantages unlike traditional part marking systems. It eliminates the need to purchase and replace ink cartridges or ribbons as well as the use of tool bits which come in contact of your surfaces and wear out.

Fast

The time it takes to mark a part using a laser is incredible! Marking can take place in less than a second even while the marked part is in motion. Most applications have a stationary part or set of parts to be marked placed in front of the laser head, it is possible to mark moving parts on the fly.

Easy

No ink reservoirs to fill, no labels or ribbons to replace, and no machine cleanup due to overspray or spills. Just turn on the power and you are ready to start marking parts.

Need to make a change to your marking parameters? No problem, the PC-based software makes program setup and changes straight-forward and simple to do. Just make your changes, save the file to the laser head and you are ready to go.

Versatile

Marking can be done on a wide range and variety of materials. The most common materials marked are plastics and metals, laser marking can also be done on wood and glass

Artwork

Part marking does not consist of just text and barcodes. You can also use laser marking as a way to add flair to your product. Images and designs can be incorporated into your marking file. Not only that, but based on your material and laser settings, you can alter the color of the marks, too!

Data Codes

One of the most valuable features of laser making is the ability to add permanent data codes to your products. This provides reliable traceability throughout the manufacturing process and any data acquisition that you wish to accomplish. Since the mark is permanent, there is no risk of a label falling off or smeared ink. Once a part has been marked, it's forever.

Common data codes consist of 1D barcodes as well as 2D barcodes such as Data Matrix and QR codes.

Berran has experience with integration of laser systems from the following companies; Keyence, Datalogic, and Tykma Electrox.

Oversized Loads Wrapping

Oversized Loads Wrapping

oversized loads wrappingEagle extended base stretch wrappers are designed to handle oversized loads wrapping such as furniture, cabinets, large foam pieces, display signs, etc... Even though the extended base stretch wrappers are designed for larger than usual loads, they can handle normal loads, too. The extended base models feature all the same functionality as our standard base models.

Extended Frame Base
Oversized 78.5" Turnable
Up to 170" Load Diameter
Up to 250% Film Pre-Stretch
Standard Operational Features

The Eagle extended base stretch wrappers can handle skids/loads of up to 170" in diagonal measurement with its 78.5" diameter turntable. Additionally, they feature a powered pre-stretch film carriage which applies up to 250% of pre-stretch to the film prior to application.


Eagle 2000EB

 

The Eagle 2000EB stretch wrapper comes equipped with an extended base as a standard feature. For more information on the Eagle 2000EB, click the link below.

Integrated Weight Scale

Integrated Weight Scale

Nearly all Eagle stretch wrappers are capable of having an optional integrated weight scale system installed. The stretch wrapper scale system makes it possible to obtain load weight at the same time that load wrapping takes places. Thereby reducing processing time and increasing productivity.

Real-Time Weight Monitoring
Load Label Generation
Accurate Shipping Weight
Decrease Processing Time
Increased Productivity
integrated weight scale load cell

At the heart of the system are the load cells. Located at multiple locations under the turntable and mast base, the load cells continuously collect weight data samples. The weight data is then averaged out with help from the load cell junction panel. The weight data is then transmitted to the display panel where it can be easily read by the machine operator.

Zebra printer

The panel can be connected to a variety of label printers via the RS232 serial connection. Any printer that supports ZPL script can be used to print the load label data generated by the panel.

By attaching a load label to your wrapped skid(s), carrier weight errors can be eliminated. Any additional costs or fees that may occur due to differences in estimated versus actual load weights can be reduced.


Stretch wrappers with integrated weight scale

While the weight scale system can be integrated into nearly any Eagle stretch wrapper, there are several stretch wrapper models that come with an integrated scale system built-in from the factory. For more information, take a look at the Eagle 2000BWS product link below
