Remote Palm Buttons for Branson Welders

Plastic Assembly Technologies has a line of remote palm buttons for Branson 900 and 2000 series ultrasonic welders.  PAT’s Remote Palm Buttons are used to initiate the start of your Branson 900 & 2000 series welding equipment.  These ERGO friendly palm buttons are easy to install and mount on most tables.  The palm buttons are often used to allow removal of the welder from an automation line and cycle the welder independent of the automation.

Aluminum & Titanium Ultrasonic Boosters

Plastic Assembly Technologies has introduced a new line of aluminum and titanium rigid mount ultrasonic boosters without spanner wrench holes. Ultrasonic boosters without spanner wrench holes result in a reduction of stress location points on the booster and provide for boosters that are less prone to fail. Additionally, these boosters are all of the same length, allowing the user to change the amplitude of the converter, booster and horn assembly without affecting the length of the assembly. Therefore, the amplitude can be mechanically changed without requiring significant adjustment in the welder setup. The rigid mount design reduces deflection during the ultrasonic welding process providing for less potential variation during welding. The boosters are priced to reflect the cost of conventional boosters, but provide a host of additional benefits. The ratios of gain changes available are 1:1, 1.5:1, 2.0:1 and 2.5:1. The boosters are designed to fit in Branson or Dukane ultrasonic welders using 3.250″ diameter ring mounts. Plastic Assembly Technologies has developed a stack vise to ease the changeover.
