Title (EN) ULTRASOUND WELDING APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE SOUDAGE A ULTRASONS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An ultrasound welding component (118) is disclosed. One embodiment of the component includes a weld region about which an ultrasound weldable material (140) may be wrapped into a loop. The weld region has an elliptical cross-section and includes a weld zone consisting of recesses positioned on opposing sides of a weld area. The configuration of the weld region causes the loop of weldable material to develop a more circular shape than the elliptical cross-section of the weld region.
(FR)L'invention concerne un composant de soudage à ultrasons (118). Un mode de réalisation du composant comprend une zone de soudage autour de laquelle un matériau soudable à ultrasons (140) peut être enveloppé dans une boucle. La région de soudage présente une section transversale elliptique et une zone de soudure comportant des évidements situés sur les côtés opposés de la zone de soudure. La configuration de la région de soudure permet à la boucle de matériau soudable de développer une forme plus circulaire que la section transversale elliptique de la région de soudure.
