System Overview
Your iQ Series Ultrasonic Hand Held System has two
basic components: an ultrasonic generator, and a hand
probe.
Generator
acoustic stack (horn, booster, transducer) and adjusts the generator output frequency to match it.
This is done for every weld cycle and eliminates
the need to manually tune the generator.
•
Line Voltage Regulation automatically maintains
constant amplitude regardless of line voltage deviation. The available output power is maintained
with any voltage input within the specified range.
This provides consistent system performance regardless of line voltage fluctuations. It also eliminates the need for bulky, external constant–voltage transformers.
•
Load Regulation provides constant amplitude
automatically regardless of power draw. The ultrasonic output amplitude level is held to within
±1% to provide weld process consistency and reduced weld cycle times.
•
Industrial Line–Power Source means that
standard systems will operate worldwide at all
industrial high line voltage levels, whether it is
200VAC @60Hz in Japan, 240VAC @50Hz in
Europe or 208VAC @60Hz in the United States.
There are no internal transformer taps to change
for worldwide operation. North American systems are optionally available to operate on the
120VAC line voltage level.
•
Multiple
Electronic
Overload
protection circuits prevent instantaneous component failure in the event of extreme output overload conditions, and rated overload
power limit is based on the actual true RMS
power output level.
•
Trigger by Power produces greater weld consistency by requiring that a sufficient amont of pressure/force is applied to the part before the actual
weld begins.
•
CE Certification means that the system meets
the required European standards to be sold and
used in Europe.
•
ISO 9001 Certification means that this system
has been manufactured to high quality standards
and assures you of manufacturing excellence.
The generator is specifically designed for ultrasonic applications using hand held probes. Using the available system
control inputs and outputs, the generator provides a versatile stand-alone workstation.
This product’s rugged internal circuitry ensures a continuous resonant frequency lock at the start of each weld.
Standard to this line of generators is time and energy control. The brightly lit display is easy to read. The menu
structure makes programming simple, and the one-touch
hot keys give the operator even more flexibility.
The generator’s compact size and its integrated hand grip
make it easy to carry.
It also includes an RFI line filter that passes strict CE test
specifications for global applications.
Hand Probes
The probes are perfect for manual spot welding, staking,
cutting and inserting applications. Both the HP and PG
(pistol grip) models include hangers so that when a probe
is not needed it can be hung on a counterbalanced hook.
Fittings for air-cooling are also standard on all probes.
Key Features
•
Compact Generator means this component is easy to
move, and there will be more space for other necessities
on the table or work bench.
•
Pulse Width Modulation incorporates patented
circuitry giving the power supply the ability to
efficiently change the output amplitude. This makes
it possible to start large horns with reduced power. It
also provides more power efficient switch-mode generator operation and increased reliability.
•
Linear Ramp Soft Start circuitry allows the acoustic stack to ramp up to operating amplitude smoothly,
minimizing the start-up surges and abnormal stress to
the stack and generator.
•
Digi-Trac Tuning tracks the resonant frequency of the

RFI Grounding
Proper grounding for the generator chassis is essential
for the effective suppression of electrical noise or
RFI (Radio Frequency Interference). Every ultrasonic
generator contains a RFI filter that blocks noise on the
AC power line from entering the system control circuitry.
This filter also prevents ultrasonic frequency noise from
being fed back into the AC power line. For the RFI filter
to operate effectively, it is necessary to correctly ground
the system.
Connect a grounding wire from the grounding stud
connection (see Figure 3-1) to the nearest grounded metal
pipe or equivalent earth ground.

HAND PROBE Connector
Ultrasound Output
The ultrasound output connector used with this generator
is integrated into a D-Sub style connector. This connector
provides superior shielding of electrical noise. The output
connector mates with a fully shielded ultrasound cable
that is secured to the generator with two simple, reliable
thumbscrews.
The ultrasonic output from this connector (that drives the
attached ultrasonic load) is a very high AC voltage. At
high power levels there is high current, and the cable must
be securely attached to the hand probe for safe operation.
Only use original equipment ultrasound cables for safe
and reliable system operation.

System Outputs
(Optional Connections)
The OUTPUTS connector is a four-position wire
receptacle-type terminal block. If needed, it can provide
the operator with basic system welding status. Everything
connected to the OUTPUTS connector is customersupplied. Typically indicator lights or sound modules are
powered by these output signals. (The lights or sound
modules can be mounted on widely available Stack Light
assemblies.) Each output signal is rated to operate on a
24VDC power source and can activate an attached load
up to a maximum of 500 mA.

Power Switch/Circuit Breaker
The power switch/circuit breaker has a rocker-style actuator switch that will activate or deactivate the AC power
to the system. The power ON position is marked with the
internationally recognized I symbol, the power OFF position is marked with the 0 symbol. This power switch also
integrates an appropriately sized over-current protection
circuit breaker function in the generator.
If an over-current condition trips the circuit breaker, it will
automatically switch to the OFF position. If the overload
current that caused the circuit breaker to trip is due to a
transient condition, the circuit breaker can be reset by
switching the actuator back to the ON position.

CAUTION
If when resetting the circuit
breaker afer it has tripped, it
immediately trips again, there
is likely an internal system
malfunction, and the generator
will need service. Do NOT repeatedly try to reset the circuit
breaker. If it trips, this will only
cause more damage to the
generator.

This section of the manual helps the reader become
familiar with the operating modes, and illustrates some
typical programming steps.
There are three welding modes available. These
correspond to the three ways in which the welder can be
used: Manual, Time, and Energy.
Select the Welding Mode
Manual - In MANUAL mode the operator controls
the weld cycle. The cycle starts when the operator presses
the hand probe’s trigger switch, and the ultrasonic signal
(U/S) activates. When the trigger switch is released,
the ultrasonic signal stops, and the cycle is complete.
(Manual mode is the default selection.)
Time - In TIME mode the operator sets a maximum
time (seconds) the ultrasonic signal will be active for
each weld cycle. The cycle starts when the hand probe’s
trigger switch is activated, and the U/S activates. The
U/S stops when the programmed time is reached. The
trigger switch must be held activated for the entire
welding cycle. Then it is released so that a new weld
cycle can begin.
Energy
- In ENERGY mode the operator sets a
maximum energy (Joules) the generator will reach
during the weld cycle. [A maximum weld time must be
set when welding by energy. If the energy level is not
reached, the preset for time will determine when the U/S
is deactivated.] When the preset energy level is reached,
the U/S will be deactivated. The cycle starts when
the hand probe’s trigger switch is pressed, and U/S is
activated. When the programmed energy is reached, U/S
stops. The trigger switch must be held activated for the
entire welding cycle. Then it is released so that a new
weld cycle can begin.
Dukane Manual Part No. 403-577-01
NOTE
With one exception, U/S is activated anytime the probe’s trigger
switch trigger is pressed regardless of operating mode, or what is
displayed on the LCD screen.
The EXCEPTION - When a fault
has occurred in Latching Fault
Mode. In that case ENTER must
be pressed to clear the fault before U/S can be activated.

Hold
HOLD is used more often with Time or Energy modes,
but it can be used with the Manual mode. It is a period of
time that can be set to follow release of the probe’s trigger
switch.
During HOLD the operator typically applies pressure to
the part being welded. Next, the operator hears an audible
alarm that serves as a reminder that HOLD has finished,
and the probe can be lifted.
NOTE
The generator’s end of HOLD signal
will only be heard if the audible alarm
is ON.
The Audible Alarm can be set ON or
OFF. See Hardware Settings on the
next page.
HOLD does not allow the operator to begin a new cycle
until HOLD is finished.
To set a HOLD period:
1. Select the weld mode (Manual, Time, Energy).
2.
Set the time and energy parameters as needed.
3.
Press the HOLD key. The screen will appear as it

Theory of Operation
Plastic welding is the most common application of
ultrasonic assembly. To perform ultrasonic plastic
welding, the vibrating tip is brought into contact with
one of the work pieces. Pressure is applied and ultrasonic
energy travels through the material generating frictional
heat at the contact point of the two parts. The frictional
heat melts a molded ridge of plastic on one of the pieces
and the molten material flows between the two surfaces.
When the vibration stops, the material solidifies forming a
permanent bond.

CAUTION
Never use the hand probe if
the cable insulating jacket is
cut or damaged in any way.
Probe Configuration
A basic ultrasonic probe package consists of:
1. A probe which houses the transducer to convert the electrical energy supplied by the generator into mechanical
vibrations.
2. A horn to transfer the mechanical vibrations from the
probe to the parts to be welded.
Optional components include special replaceable tips
which can be threaded on to the tip of the horn, and a
booster to amplify the mechanical vibrations of the horn.
A basic hand–held probe system is shown in Figure 6-2.
The hand probe is easily identified by its trigger actuator
and permanently attached cable. Normally a booster is not
used with a hand probe as this increases the length and
weight and reduces its versatility. The optional threaded
titanium tip can be used when the application calls for
a staking profile or a pointed spot weld. Replaceable
tips are not commonly used in high–volume production
environments.

Section 6 – Probes and Probe Stacks
Ultrasonic Horn
The horn transfers the ultrasonic mechanical vibrations
(originating at the transducer in the probe housing) to the
plastic parts through direct physical contact. The horn
is precision machined and designed to vibrate at either
20kHz, 30kHz, 40kHz, 50kHz or 70kHz. The tuning is
accomplished using electronic frequency measurement.
Inherent variations in material composition prevent tuning
by dimensional machining alone.
There are many different horn profile styles depending
upon the process requirements. Factors which affect
the horn design are the materials to be welded and the
method of assembly. Horns are usually constructed from
aluminum, hardened steel or titanium. As the frequency
increases, vibration amplitude typically decreases, but
internal stress in the horn increases. Higher frequencies
are used for delicate parts that cannot handle a lot of
amplitude. Some factors to keep in mind for high–
frequency (e.g. 40kHz) ultrasonic welding versus low–
frequency (e.g. 20kHz) ultrasonic welding are listed here.
1. Stress in the horn is higher at high frequencies.
Probe
Housing
2. Wear on the horn is greater at high frequencies.
3. Clean and flat mating surfaces between the horn, booster
and transducer are more critical at high frequencies.
Booster
The function of a booster is to alter the gain (i.e. output
amplitude) of the probe. A booster is amplifying if its gain
is greater than one and reducing if its gain is less than one. A
neutral or coupling booster is used to provide an additional
clamping location for added probe stack stability. A probe
designed to be mounted in a fixture along with a booster and
horn is shown in Figure 6–3. This is commonly referred to
as a stack. As indicated, the components are secured with
threaded studs.

Stack Assembly
Attaching a Replaceable
Tip to a Horn
1. Inspect all horn and tip surfaces for stress cracks,
chips, or gouges. Any of these irregularities will affect
operation and could lead to further equipment damage.
Contact the Dukane Ultrasonics Tooling Department
concerning damaged horn components.
2. Apply an extremely thin layer of a high temperature,
high pressure silicon grease to the back surface that
mates with the horn. The grease will allow both
surfaces to intimately mate and become acoustically
transparent which improves the energy transfer. Do
not apply any grease to the threads. We recommend
Dow–Corning #4 (or #111 as an alternate). A small
packet of Dow–Corning #4 is supplied with the system.
If you cannot use a silicon–based grease in your facility, a petroleum–based grease may be used. However, it
is likely to leave carbonaceous deposits on the surface,
and require more frequent joint maintenance. Failure
to follow these instructions, may result in the mating
surfaces bonding and difficulty removing the tip from
the horn.
3. Thread the tip into the horn and tighten to the torque
specifications below using an open end wrench of the
correct size to fit the wrench flats of the tip. This is
illustrated in Figure 6-4. If necessary, use a spanner
wrench (on horns with spanner wrench holes) or an
open end wrench (on horns with wrench flats) to keep
the horn from turning in your hand. A canvas strap
wrench is permissible if it does not gouge or scratch
the horn.
NOTE
Do not apply any grease to the threads
of the replaceable tip. This may cause
the tip to loosen from the horn resulting
in inconsistent operation.

CAUTION
NEVER clamp the horn
in a vise. The resulting
scratches or gouges in the

Attaching the Mounting
Stud to a Horn or a
Booster
1. Inspect the stud for cracks or damaged threads.
Replace the stud if it is cracked or otherwise damaged.
2. Remove any foreign matter from the threaded stud
and the mating hole.
NOTE
Do not apply any grease to the stud
threads or the tapped hole. This may
cause the stud to loosen. If the stud
wanders within the joint, it can vibrate, resulting in excessive heat. In some cases,
this can melt the tooling material.
3. Thread the mounting stud into the input* end of the
horn or the input* end of the booster and tighten to
the following torque specifications using an Allen
wrench in the socket head of the mounting stud.
Table 6-II lists the torque specifications in units
for both English and Metric systems of measurements.
DO NOT hold the booster by the mounting rings
when tightening stud. The mounting rings have a
shear pin which could snap under excessive torque.
Use a spanner wrench (on horns with spanner
wrench holes) or an open end wrench (on horns
with wrench flats) to keep the horn or booster from
turning in your hand.

Attaching The Horn to
a Booster, Booster to a
Probe, or Horn to a Probe
1. Inspect all surfaces to be joined for stress cracks,
chips, or gouges. Any of these irregularities will affect
operation and could lead to further equipment damage.
Contact the Dukane Ultrasonic Tooling Department
concerning a damaged booster.
2. Ensure that the mating surfaces of the two components
are clean and smooth. These surfaces must make intimate contact for the mechanical energy to pass from
one component to the next. Pitting or a buildup of old
grease and dirt on a mating surface will interfere with
the energy transfer and reduce the power delivered.
3. Make sure that the stud in the horn or booster is tight.
See the preceding mounting stud assembly instructions
for torque specifications.
NOTE
Always remove a probe stack from the
machine in which it is mounted before
attaching or removing a horn.

CAUTION
Never leave a horn or booster
assembly hand tight. Torque
it to the proper specifications
before proceeding. If the assembly is installed without
being properly torqued down,
the assembly may vibrate
severely, damaging the mating surfaces and causing
the generator to overload.
4. Remove any foreign matter from the threaded stud and
mating hole.
5. Apply an extremely thin layer of a high temperature,
high pressure silicon grease to the surface that mates
with the horn. The grease will allow both surfaces to
intimately mate and become acoustically transparent
which improves the energy transfer. We recommend
Dow–Corning #4 (or #111 as an alternate). A small
packet of Dow–Corning #4 is supplied with the system.
If you cannot use a silicon–based grease in your facility,
a petroleum–based grease may be used. However, it is
likely to leave carbonaceous deposits on the surface,
and require more frequent joint maintenance. Grease
may be omitted if mylar washers are preferred on systems that require frequent changes. Mylar is plastic and
will creep under compression, so mylar is not recommended for system that are not changed frequently.
Failure to follow these instructions, may result in the
mating surfaces bonding and difficulty removing the
horn from the booster or the booster from the probe.

Do not tighten the studs to these higher
ratings as it may induce unnecessary
stress in the assembly.

iQ Series, Ultrasonic Hand Held Systems User’s Manual
Stack Disassembly
Stack disassembly is required when changing the booster or
horn, or for a thorough inspection of all stack components.
In mounted systems, always remove the stack from its
mounting to disassemble the stack components.
To establish a maintenance schedule, inspect the mating
surfaces after the first 200–400 hours of operation. If they
require cleaning, halve the time between inspections. If
the surfaces do not require reconditioning, then double the
time between inspections. Each system is different due
to the large number of operational parameters and stress
factors.

CAUTION
Never hold a probe by the
housing when tightening or
loosening an adjoining component. The probe housing
has anti–rotation devices
to keep the transducer
aligned. These could shear
under excessive torque.
The assembly and disassembly procedures for a hand probe
are shown in Figure 6–6. It makes no difference whether
the horn is attached to the booster first, or the booster is
attached to the probe first.

Booster Notes
How to Tell the Booster
Input End from the Output
1.
The depth of the threaded hole on the output end is
always deeper than the threaded hole on the input
end.
2.
On an amplifying booster (gain > 1.0), the larger
diameter end is the input end. On a reducing booster
(gain < 1.0) the larger diameter end is the output end.
On a neutral acting booster the diameters are equal.
3.
The cap screws on the booster mounting rings are
always inserted from the output end toward the input
end.
How to Tell if the Booster
Is Amplifying or Reducing
Boosters have a die-stamped number on their surface that
indicates their gain or reduction. If the number is greater than
1.0 (e.g. 1.5), it is an amplifying booster. If the number is
less than 1.0 (e.g. 0.6), it is a reducing or reverse booster.
A neutral booster has no gain and has 1.0 stamped on it. A
neutral or coupling booster is used to provide another probe
stack clamping location for added stability.

CAUTION
NEVER install a booster
upside down to change
an amplifying system to
a reducing system. The
boosters are dimensionally
asymmetric. They are tuned
from input to output to act
like an acoustic lens. Reversing them will not give the
expected results and may
cause damage to the system.

Overload
When an overload occurs, it will automatically reset
when the next ultrasound activation signal begins. If the
condition persists:
Turn the generator OFF and:
1. Check the system. Change the hand probe to one that
is known to be good.
NOTE
The LCD screen displays a variety of pop-up status changes as
they occur. Check Tables 7-I and

- Pages 49- 50.
2. Turn the generator ON, and see if the fault condition
has been corrected.
Overtemperature
When the system overheats, and the generator’s internal
temperature exceeds 85° C (185° F) an overtemperature
fault condition will trip.
When the system cools, the system automatically resets
the overtemperature fault.

Welding Problems
Weak Welds
Weak welds, or underwelding, is caused by insufficient
energy being transmitted to the part. You can increase
the weld pressure, increase the weld duration (Time or
Energy) or change to a higher gain booster to increase
the amplitude to increase the energy delivered to the
weld.
NOTE
Primary factors in achieving consistent, quality welds - especially when
using hand held probes - are the skill
and training of the operator.
Inconsistent Welds
Variations in plastic due to filler materials and moisture
absorption may lead to inconsistent welds. Fillers can
be especially troublesome if they are not uniformly
distributed, the content is too high or it contains too
much or poor quality regrind or degraded plastic.
Try welding by energy. This eliminates many
inconsistencies.There should be no unusual or loud
noise from the acoustic stack. If there is, disassemble
the stack and reassemble.
Exchange the probe with another unit to see if the problem
disappears. If not, exchange the generator with another
unit to try and isolate the problem.
The horn amplitude may not be uniform if it has been
machined, altered or damaged. All of these will change
the resonant frequency of the horn. You can have the
horn analyzed.

Dukane ISO
ISO CERTIFICATION
Dukane chose to become ISO 9001:2000 certified in order to demonstrate to our customers
our continuing commitment to being a quality
vendor. By passing its audit, Dukane can assure
you that we have in place a well–defined and
systematic approach to quality design, manufacturing, delivery and service. This certificate
reinforces Dukane's status as a quality vendor
of technology and products.
To achieve ISO 9001:2000 certification, you
must prove to one of the quality system registrar groups that you meet three requirements:
1. Leadership
2. Involvement
3. Quality in Line Organizations and Quality
System Infrastructure.
The ISO 9001:2000 standard establishes a
minimum requirement for these requirements
and starts transitioning the company from a
traditional inspection–oriented quality system
to one based on partnership for continuous
improvement. This concept is key in that Dukane no longer focuses on inspection, but on
individual processes.
Dukane's quality management system is based
on the following three objectives:
1. Customer oriented quality. The aim is to
improve customer satisfaction.
2. Quality is determined by people. The aim
is to improve the internal organization and
cooperation between staff members.
3. Quality is a continuous improvement.
The aim is to continuously improve the
internal organization and the competitive
position.
