(July 6, 2010) — Ultrasound component and surface cleaning meets the challenges of removing film and contamination from miniaturized and delicate structures, and sensitive substrates. Weber Ultrasonics developed a 250kHz ultrasonic generator with a power output of 250 and 500W as well as transducers matched for these applications.
Ultrasound allows parts to be cleaned within short cleaning cycles and in line with demands in an economical, reproducible and environmentally friendly manner for coarse, fine and superfine cleaning. The frequency of the electrical signals emitted by the ultrasonic generator, which the transducer system transfers to a tank of liquid as waves of ultrasound, is the key factor for the cleaning effect. The lower the frequency of the electrical signals, the more energy is released by the ultrasonic waves.
When working with sensitive components and fine structures such as those commonly found in the optical and semiconductor industry, electronics, precision mechanics, microtechnology and photovoltaics today, a frequency that is too low can damage the parts or destroy the structures. Weber Ultrasonics GmbH has added a 250 kHz frequency module generator to its SONIC DIGITAL digital ultrasonic generator program. Frequency is generated and controlled digitally, stabilizing frequency, amplitude and power output. The power output can be set steplessly between 10% and 100% via power control. The device can be operated manually on the equipment itself or via remote control.
Standard SONIC DIGITAL series features include an intelligent cooling system and protection mechanisms against short-circuiting, no-load operation, overloading, and overheating.
Generators by Weber Ultrasonics can be operated with every compatible transducer system of the same power class. SONOSUB submersible transducers and SONOPLATE plate transducers with 250 and 500 Watt power output, the dimensions of which can be adapted according to customer requirements or the object to be cleaned, can be used with the 250kHz generator.
Weber Ultrasonics GmbH produces products for ultrasonic cleaning, ultrasonic welding and special applications. The ultrasonic component manufacturer is certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001:2000. Two new subsidiaries were founded in 2009: Weber Ultrasonics America and Weber Ultrasonics weld & cut GmbH.
