Ultrasonic Textile Cutting
Ultrasonic Textile Cutting for synthetic fabrics is continuously on the rise even in fields unrelated to the textile industry. Some of them include: disposable items, filtering components, outdoors and medical fabrics.
This machine can be operated manually and it has been designed to perform precise linear cuts on synthetic fabrics. It is possible to connect it with any type of 40 kHz ultrasonic generator, plus it is equipped with a transducer with piezoelectric ceramics and a machete shaped ultrasonic sonotrode. Its structure is devised to be mounted on workbenches with the assistance of two wheels installed at its base, allowing for its free sliding along the supporting ring.
Cutting with ultrasound technology may be manual, semi or fully automated. They are usually tailored to meet each client’s needs and production standards. Ultrasonic sealing can be used on drapes made of just 25% synthetic fibers, such as polyester, viscose or rayon.
Ultrasonic cutting and weaving guarantees:
– No fraying and selvage
– No burns on fabrics and emissions of toxic fumes
– No warm up waiting time
– Shorter production times
– Less energy consumption
– No need for thread in seams
– Coupling together two fabrics or one with a film
– Simultaneously punching and sealing
– Cutting and sealing synthetic cloth at the same time.
The synthetic fabrics that work best with ultrasonic cutting machinery are those that contain thermoplastics with similar melting temperatures and compatible molecular structures. In order for the ultrasonic cutting to work properly, synthetic fabrics should all share the following characteristics:
– Wide melting range
– High friction coefficient
– Uniform thickness
– At least 25 % of thermoplastic contents
– Enough stiffness and thickness to take the energy on the material’s interface (0,32258 mm / 0,0127 mm minimum).
Polyester is considered to be the most suitable synthetic material to be subjected to ultrasonic applications. Moreover, ultrasounds can generate strong and long-lasting seams in synthetic elements like Nylon 6 and Nylon 6/6 as well. Most polyolefins (polypropylene and polyethylene), on the other hand, show excellent welding characteristics, plus they are very lightweight. This makes them to lend themselves to various industrial uses.
– Easy of use and steady production results
– It seal off drape borders immediately
– Avoiding any unwanted fraying
– Efficient space optimization
– Guarantees quick, clean solutions without emitting hazardous fumes.
