DPC™ II Plus and EZ Welder System – User’s Manual
DPC II Plus Overview
The DPC™ II Plus is the newest model in Dukane’s Dynamic Process Controller product family. This system will
accept a wide variety of optional modules and is designed
for use with ultrasonic presses or applications that require the use of hand probes or thruster systems.
The DPC II Plus provides basic system control inputs
and system monitor and status outputs. This makes the
DPC II Plus ideal for automated control systems. Signal
conditioning and electrical isolation are also provided.
Like other DPC models, the II Plus includes the same
internal ultrasonic generator circuitry and features. Optional modules are available to enhance the DPC’s ability to meet a wide variety of process requirements. The
most common combination includes the Timer board
and a Press control board. Other options include an
Remote Amplitude control, a Power Signal module for
Weld–by–Energy requirements and up to two Multi–
Probe controller modules (DPC II Plus only) for driving multiple probe systems. In most cases, DPC II Plus
systems in the field can be upgraded on-site if they already have the standard Timer board.
All DPC II Plus generators (except the highest power
models) and the EZ/EZ–X Model 1000 feature a universal power supply with dual line–voltage 1 input. In addition, the equipment is designed and tested to comply with
FCC and CE regulations that apply to this product.

See Tables 15—I and 15—II
EZ Welder™ Overview
The EZ Welder™ system combines the best features of
the DPC II Plus ultrasonic generator with a quality press
in a matched, low–cost welding system. The generator
and press are sold as a package and are not upgradable or
interchangeable with other Dukane generators.
The EZ and EZX Welders are both single–pressure systems. The EZX model adds an energy mode and features additional limit switches for pretrigger and end–
of–weld indication. The EZ Welder press has a
maximumstroke of 5–inches.

Health and Safety Tips
Please observe these health and safety recommendations for safe, efficient, and injury-free operation of your equipment. In this manual, the term
system refers to a complete group of components
associated with the welding of plastic or metal
parts, also known as an ultrasonic assembly system. A typical system consists of a generator and/
or ultrasonic process controller, start and stop
switches, power controls, connecting cables, and
the probe assembly which includes the transducer,
booster, horn and replaceable horn tip.
Proper Installation – Operate system components
only after they are properly installed and checked.
No Unauthorized Modifications – Do not modify
your system in any way unless authorized to do so
by Dukane Corporation. Unauthorized modifications may cause injury to the operator and/or equipment damage. In addition, unauthorized modifications will void the equipment warranty.
Keep the Cover On – Do not remove the equipment cover unless specifically directed to do so by
Dukane Corporation. The generator produces hazardous electrical voltages which could cause injury.
Grounded Electrical Power – Operate this equipment only with a properly grounded electrical connection. (See Electrical Safety Grounding Instructions on the next page.)

In addition to the safety considerations, proper
grounding at the generator power cord is essential for the effective suppression of RFI (Radio
Frequency Interference). Every DPC contains a
RFI filter which blocks noise on the AC power
line from entering the DPC control circuitry. This
filter also prevents ultrasonic RFI from being fed
back into the AC power line. In order for the RFI
filter to operate properly, it is necessary to adequately ground the DPC. Run an additional
grounding wire from the rear grounding connection (see Figure 2-4) to the nearest grounded metal
pipe or equivalent earth ground by means of a
ground clamp. Use at least an 14 AWG** wire
for the connection to the DPC chassis. Stranded
is more flexible and easier to work with than solid
wire. However if you use stranded wire, crimp
spade lugs on the end to ensure a good connection.
If you have a color choice, green is the commonly
accepted color for an electrical ground connection.

Contents of DPC II Plus Shipping Container
Carefully open the shipping container, and make
sure it contains the items shown in Table 3–I. Inspect the DPC for damage. Report any damage
immediately to Dukane Ultrasonics Support/Service.

DPC Placement
Placement of the DPC depends on whether it is a
benchtop or rack-mounted configuration
Benchtop
Place the DPC on a flat surface with its front panel
easily accessible. Make certain the placement and
cabling do not interfere with the assembly operation.
Allow 5 inches (13 cm) at the rear of the DPC for
cable clearance. Allow 2 inches (5 cm) of space
on either side of the DPC for air circulation. Refer to the illustration in Figure 3-1.
CAUTION
Allow space for air ventilation around the DPC II
Plus chassis, the air intake
and exhaust. The fan draws
in fresh air to cool the internal components, reduce
thermal gradients and
increase component life.
When viewed from the
front, the fresh air intake is
on the right and the hot air
exhaust is on the left side.
If excessive dust accumulates
in the slots, wipe or vacuum
them clean. Do not use compressed air as this may force
the dust inside the chassis.

Ground the System
The DPC II Plus includes an internal RFI filter.
The standard building AC ground connection is
normally not sufficient to completely suppress
the RFI. Attach a ground cable from the DPC
grounding lug (located next to the rear AC power
switch) to an earth ground. If you are using a
press or automated probe system, each piece of
equipment must also be solidly grounded. Refer
to Figure 2–5 and Figures 3–4 through 3–8 for
the proper grounding arrangement.

1. AC Power Section
The front-panel AC power section has a switch and
power indicator that is shown in Figure 4-2.
ON/OFF
The AC power switch connects AC
power to the generator. This breaker
switch is wired in series with the rear
panel power switch (Figure 3–9). It also
serves as a circuit breaker that provides
overload protection for the DPC. Both
switches must be turned on to supply
AC power to the generator.
Green LED
The green indicator above the switch
lights when the DC bus is up, after the
AC power has been switched on. At
this point the generator is capable of
producing an ultrasonic output signal.

ON LINE
OVERTEMP
OFF LINE
This indicator lights when out-of-tolerance voltage fluctuations occur that are
related to one of the following conditions.
1. AC Line Voltage
2. Internal DC Power Supply (+5 VDC,
+12 VDC, -12V DC or +24V DC.)
INPUT TEST This indicator normally flashes red dur-
ing a power-up test. If there is a problem, a steady red light appears. This
means that either the input AC line voltage is out of tolerance, or an internal
fault has occurred in the generator.
Figure 4–4 System Status Display
OVERLOAD This red indicator lights when either of
the following conditions occur.
1. An instantaneous overload caused
by a mismatch between the ultrasonic
signal and the resonant characteristics
of the acoustic stack (transducer,
booster and horn.)
2. Excessive power beyond the
generator’s rated output is being drawn.
ON LINE
The generator is capable of operation.
OVERTEMP One of the power modules has over-
heated and the generator has shut down.
This may be caused by excessive dust
in the cooling channel or a cooling fan
failure. The generator will automatically
reset when the module temperature
drops below the trip point which is 75°C
(167°F).
OFF LINE
The generator is in a standby mode. The
ultrasound output cannot be activated.

Eight green vertical bars indicating
10% to 80% power output are displayed during normal operation. Figure 4-5 shows the display indicating
80% output power.
Figure 4–5 Normal Operation
Yellow
Two yellow bars for 90% and 100%
power output warn that the generator is operating near its maximum
rated output.
Red
The last red bar indicates that the
generator is in an overload condition
delivering more than its rated output power. Figure 4-6 shows the red
overload and two yellow warning indicators. The red warning indicator
lights up just prior to an overload
condition. The ultrasonic signal is
shut down when an overload condition occurs.

This optional module enables remote control of
output amplitude of the DPC II Plus. The control
interface is a 4–20mA current loop. The current
loop connector and fault indicator are shown in
Figure 5–5. The output can be adjusted from 36%
to 100%. The scale factor is ∆16mA = ∆64%
which is ∆1mA = ∆4%. The graph of output as a
function of loop current is shown in Figure 5–6.
The input compliance is 10 volts minimum.
Failure to provide between 4mA and 20mA of loop
current is detected as a fault and will not produce
any output. The current loop fault indicator is a bi–
color LED. It is green when the current is between 4
and 20mA and red when the current is below this
value. The module contains an internal jumper block
(SH1) to select the current loop fault option. The
default setting (jumper JU1) disables ultrasonic
output if a loop fault occurs The setting can be
reversed with JU2 to enable the minimum level output
(36%) if a loop fault occurs. This is used primarily
for system testing when a current loop is unavailable.

Power Signal Output Module
Part No. 438–826
This optional module enables the DPC II Plus to
operate in the Weld–By–Energy mode. When
installed, the DPC II Plus automatically detects the
board and enables the energy options in the process
control menu. The module also permits the user to
monitor the True-RMS ultrasonic output power
from the DPC II Plus. The module is shown in
Figure 5–7. The output signal can be monitored
from three different connectors simultaneously. The
scale factor is the same on all three outputs. On the
20kHz, 30kHz and 40kHz models, it is 1mV = 1 Watt
and the maximum full scale output is 4,095 Watts.
On the 50kHz and 70kHz models, the scale factor is
10mV = 1 Watt with a maximum output of 409 Watts.
1. A miniature phone jack is provided on the
top of the rear panel.
2. A pair of test jacks on the rear panel allow a
hand-held multimeter to monitor the power.
3.
4.
The power output signal can also be
monitored by automation equipment using
the System Output connector by measuring
between pin 16 (Power Signal) and pin 13
(Monitor Ground Reference).
This module also features an offset
adjustment to set the output to zero. Only
adjust the offset after the DPC system has
been powered up for at least 15 minutes and
with the ultrasound ouput deactivated.

Section 5 – Rear Connectors
Table 5—V on the previous page lists the pinout
and signal description for J902 which is the Press
Base connection. Note that there is an automation
input on pin 8 which is electrically identical to
pin 8 on the System Input connector. This permits
you to use J902 to initiate operation without having
to run a separate connection to pin 8 of the System
Input connector. Figure 5–9 on the previous page,
identifies the pin numbers for both J902 and J901.
NOTE
J902 Press Base connector has multiple ground pins.
The DPC–2 Plus/EZ uses pins 5, 6 & 7 for Ground.
The DPC–3 uses pins 5 & 7 for Ground.
The DPC–4 uses pins 6 & 7 for Ground.
To keep your custom automation circuits compatible with DPC models, only use pin 7 for a
ground connection to the Press Base connector.
It should be pointed out however, that the DPC–3
does have an Automation Input on pin 8.

DPC™ II Plus and EZ Welder System – User’s Manual
Multi–Probe Master Module
Multi–Probe Slave Module
Part No. 110–3954
Part No. 110–3956
This optional module enables the DPC II Plus to
activate any one of four ultrasonic probes. Each
probe can have its own setup file which is selected
by the Setup ID# (pins 12, 13 & 14) of the HD–15
System Input connector. The functions are listed
in Table 5–I and 5–II. Rear panel bicolor LED
status indicators for each probe output illuminate
green when the probe channel is selected and red
when the U/S is active. Both a MPC Master and
Slave module are shown below in Figure 5–10.
Internal logic prevents more than one probe from
being activated at a time or probe switching signals
when the U/S is on. A ring-down circuit permits
switching only when U/S output is zero. Internal
fault logic senses any malfunction and deactivates
the MPC Ready output.
The Multi–Probe Controller cannot be used with
a press module. The master module has an extra
wide back panel to prevent it’s accidental use with
the press module.
This optional module adds four additional probe
selection channels to the DPC II Plus. This gives
a total of eight probe channels. The slave module
cannot be used alone. It must be used with the
master module. An internal connector supplies the
ultrasound signal from the Master module. As with
the Master module, each output channel has a
bicolor LED status indicator that illuminates green
when the probe channel is selected and red when
the U/S is active.
NOTE
The Ultrasound input on the MPC Master
must be connected to the DPC Ultrasound
output connector (J1) with a RG62B/U coax.
This is indicated as Cable 2 in Figure 3–6.

sub menus. The Press menu option is only present if a
Press Control Module is installed. The energy value
is only displayed if a Power Output module is installed.
The Process Control menu sets the welding parameters. Limit Definition menu sets the bounds for suspect parts and bad parts. Utilities menu enables you
to save, copy and erase setup files, count parts which
are out of limit and configure status outputs.
Process Control, Limit Definition or Utilities
menu. Press the ENTER key to activate the selected
menu. The Process Control Menu selects the trigger method, the welding mode and sets the values
for the welding parameters. This menu’s structure
is the most complex of the three. However, since
the DPC II Plus reconfigures the user interface to
be consistent with the installed modules, only the
relevant portion of the menu structure is displayed.
The flow chart for the Process Control menu is
shown in Figure 6–6. The menu structure builds
logically upon itself starting with the Hand Probe

Section 7 – Process Control Menu
Process Control Menu
The Process Control Menu has a dynamic structure. Its configuration is determined each time the
DPC II Plus is turned on. The processor scans for
installed modules and connected probes and configures the user interface to match the installed
hardware. This is another reason the AC power
must be turned off before any modules or probes
are installed or removed. If you are using a hand
probe, make sure you have the latest version of
the hand–probe adapter cable (P/N 200–1248).
This has pin 11 (Hand Probe Detect) of the male
HD–15 cable connector grounded.
Hand Probe
Make sure you have connected the hand probe as
indicated in Figure 3–4. When the DPC II Plus is
powered up, it displays the current version of the
firmware and then indicates the current configuration. This is shown in Figures 7–1 and 7–2. The
screen then displays the measured values from the
last weld cycle as shown in Figure 7–3. If a Power
Output module is installed, the menu will also
display the energy data as in Figure 7–4.

DEFINITION
Power is defined as Energy per unit of Time
(i.e. how fast energy is produced or consumed).
Energy is defined as the capacity to do Work .
The release of energy does work, and in doing work on something, adds energy to it.
Work and energy are equivalent concepts. The
Weld–By–Energy mode measures energy in
units of Joules. By definition, a Watt (power) is
one Joule (energy) per Second (time). Therefore
a Joule is equivalent to one Watt–Second.

Weld Method –
Ground Detect
The GROUND DETECT
welding method is
available in both MPC

conf igurations. In
ground detect mode,
the ultrasonic signal is
initiated when the operate input is triggered
and terminated when
the horn touches the
metal fixture during
the welding cycle. For
the ground detect fea70

a switch closure when it contacts

Section 7 – Process Control Menu
ture to function properly, the fixture must be electrically isolated from the horn support and base as
shown in Figure 7–19. The horn is grounded and
acts as a switch closure when it contacts the fixture. The ground detection is a current limited +5V
DC signal on pin 14 of J901 which is the Thruster
connector on the Press Control module. Ground
detect is normally used with a press system.
The MPC module cannot be used simultaneously
with a Press Control module. If the ground–detect function is needed with a MPC configuration,
connect the ground detect wire from the isolated
fixture to the Iso Auto Stop (pin 9) on the System
Input HD–15 connector. This is a current limited
+22V DC signal. Move the SH704 jumper block
to JU715 and refer to the discussion of the Auto
Stop option under Figure 7–13, since pin 9 is used
to stop the weld in both cases.
Max Weld Time
Maximum Weld Time is the value at which the welding process terminates regardless of whether the
ground detect signal or scrub process has been activated. The data entry screen for maximum weld
time looks the same as the screens shown in Figures 7–11 and 7–18. Set the maximum weld time
to a value greater than the time required to complete the welding cycle including the scrub time.
Dukane Manual Part No. 403–566–01
Scrub Time
Scrub Time is an extension of the welding cycle
which is generated when the ground detect signal
would normally end the weld cycle. This is typically used in cutting operations. Often the horn
cuts through the material at a single point. This
activates the ground detect to end the weld cycle.
But the cut may not be complete, and the additional scrub time keeps the ultrasound signal on
to complete the cut. The data entry screen for scrub
time is shown in Figure 7–20. The maximum allowable time value is 0.150 seconds.
SCRUB TIME

The word AUTO in the menu options is short

1. The HOLD TIME parameter (Thold) determines
the length of time the probe is held in contact
with the parts after the welding cycle has
stopped. Holding permits the material to solidify under pressure before the head retracts.
2. In some applications, the material being
welded can stick to the horn as it retracts. A
short burst of ultrasonic energy called
AFTERBURST prevents this. This operation is
defined by two values. The delay after the start
of the upstroke before the burst starts (Tdelay)
and the duration of the burst signal (Tburst).
The maximum value of both of these parameters is 0.999 second.

Untimed Auto Probe – Delay
The generator is triggered by external automation equipment. The automation control provides
the ultrasound start and stop signal. In certain
operations, a delay may be required to allow the
clamping head(s) to fully engage before starting
the ultrasound. The probe delay time menu for
untimed operation was shown previously in Figure 7–14. This parameter sets the post–trigger
delay. The maximum value which can be entered
is 30.000 seconds. The minimum value for the
Delay Time is 0.000 second which effectively disables any delay.

of SINGLE PRESSURE or DUAL PRESSURE mode.

3. If DISABLE was selected in the AUTO STOP
menu, the TRIGGER TYPE menu is displayed
next. This selects whether the trigger which
initiates the weld cycle is momentary or must
be maintained throughout the weld cycle.
4. The SINGLE PRESSURE mode follows the
same programming sequence as Weld Method
in the previous Timed Auto Probe. The DUAL
PRESSURE mode eliminates ground detect for
obvious reasons and allows welding by Time
or Energy at both pressure level settings.
NOTE
The word AUTO in the menu options is short
for Automation not automatic. Any menu that
contains the word AUTO means the DPC II Plus
will require an external signal(s) from custom
automation equipment for correct operation.
Initiate Mode
Trigger Type
When using a press, the usual choice is to select
MANUAL for the Initiate Mode. This permits the
dual palm switches to initiate the operate sequence.
If AUTO mode is selected, then an external initiate
signal must be supplied to either pins 3 and 4 (Iso
Oper In) or pin 8 (Sw Oper In) of the HD–15 System In connector. Refer back to Figure 5–2 and
Table 5—I for more information.
If DISABLE was selected in the AUTO STOP menu,
the TRIGGER TYPE menu is displayed next. Otherwise it follows the HEAD UP ON AUTO STOP menu.
If MOMENTARY is selected, the trigger switch
is ignored after the first contact closure. The
DPC external bus scan time is 1 msec so the
minimum signal duration is >1 msec. If the
trigger switch opens after the weld cycle is
initiated, the welding processes continues normally. Momentary is recommended for most
welding processes except hand probes.
If MAINTAINED is selected, the trigger must
be maintained during the entire portion of the
weld cycle. If the trigger signal is momentarily
lost while the ultrasonic signal is on, the weld
cycle is terminated. This mode is recommended for special applications. It has an advantage over momentary trigger in that it will
generate a TRIGGER LOST error message if you
suddenly lose trigger force (see Error Messages
in Section 12 – Troubleshooting). This may happen when welding soft plastic or small parts.
Auto Stop
The normal configuration when using a press is
to set Auto Stop to DISABLE. This permits the standard emergency OFF switch on the front of the
press base to halt the weld cycle. If Auto Stop is
set to ENABLE, then an external signal must be
supplied to pin 9 (Iso Auto Stop) of the HD–15
System In connector. Refer back to the discussion
under Figure 7–13 and also to Table 5—I for more
detailed information.
Head Up On Auto Stop
If DISABLE was selected in the AUTO STOP menu,
the HEAD UP ON AUTO STOP menu is bypassed. If
ENABLE was selected in AUTO STOP, the HEAD UP
menu is displayed. It offers two choices for head
position. If ENABLE is selected for the Head Up option, the head retracts when an Auto Stop signal is
detected. If the DISABLE option is selected, the press
head remains stationary after an Auto Stop signal.
Note that this option and Auto Stop are only available when the Initiate Mode has been set to Auto.
76
Single/Dual Pressure Mode
The SINGLE PRESSURE mode has the same programming sequence as Weld method in the previous Timed Auto Probe. The DUAL PRESSURE
mode eliminates ground detect and allows Time
or Energy target values to be used at both pressure trigger points. The modes can be mixed usDukane Manual Part No. 403–566–01
Section 7 – Process Control Menu
ing Energy for the first mode and Time for the
second mode or vice versa. Each of the blocks
labeled Pressure 1 and Pressure 2 are equivalent
to the Single Pressure Weld Method branch without Ground Detect. Note that the Auto Probe Trigger Method bypasses the Single/Dual Pressure
Weld Mode and jumps directly to Weld Method.

PRESS Mode Example
We will now go through programming a typical
press configuration with no automation and using dual pressure mode. We will assume that a
Power Output module is also installed. If your
configuration does not have this module, you can
still follow along and substitute Time anywhere
we have selected Energy.
We will start from an initial DPC power up, so cycle
the AC power switch off then back on. If you are
using a dual–pressure press, make sure the pressure select switch is in the WELD position. The
screen first displays the firmware revision and then
the hardware configuration as shown in Figures
7–1 and 7–2. The screen then displays the previous weld cycle data on the Operate screen. This is
shown in Figure 7–4 which is repeated here as Figure 7–31. If you do not have a Power Output module, your screen will look like Figure 7–3.

NOTE
If you have a Remote Amplitude Control module installed, its gain setting will override the front

Section 8 – Process Limits Menu
Process Limits Menu
The Process Limits Menu allows you to define
upper and lower bounds for suspect parts or for
bad parts. The limits are available in both units
of time and units of energy depending upon the
welding method chosen in Process Control setup.
In addition, if a dual–pressure welding method
is selected, total time and/or total energy limits
are also available for suspect or bad parts. The
same memory location is used for suspect and
bad part limits. The difference is that exceeding
a bad part limit terminates the weld cycle. Exceeding a suspect limit allows the weld cycle to
continue until it finishes normally or exceeds a
Total limit. There are 12 different limit settings
which are broken down as follows:
1a. There are two possible BAD PART UPPER TIME
LIMITS (one for each pressure level).
1b. There are two possible BAD PART UPPER ENERGY
LIMITS (one for each pressure level).
1c. There is one TOTAL BAD PART UPPER TIME LIMIT
and one TOTAL BAD PART UPPER ENERGY LIMIT.
This makes a total of six BAD PART UPPER
LIMITS.
2. There are six BAD PART LOWER LIMITS.
During a dual–pressure mode welding cycle however, only six of the limits (eight in mixed mode)
are applicable. In single pressure mode, this drops
to two usable limits at any one time since the
totals are available only in dual mode. For example, you can set both upper time and energy
limits, but only the upper time limit is recognized
in the weld by time mode.
Table 8—I summarizes the 8 limits recognized in
a dual–pressure, mixed–mode welding cycle.
Table 8—II summarizes the 6 limits recognized in
a dual–pressure, uniform–mode welding cycle.
Table 8—III lists the 2 limits recognized in a single–
pressure welding cycle.
A Bad Parts Counter is also available in the Utilities menu which is covered in the next section.
Dukane Manual Part No. 403–566–01
DEFINITION
A mixed mode is a dual–pressure weld cycle in
which one unit of measurement (e.g. time) is
used for Pressure 1 and the other unit of measurement (e.g. energy) is used for Pressure 2.
A uniform mode is a dual–pressure weld cycle in
which the same unit of measurement (e.g. time)
is used for both Pressure 1 and Pressure 2.

Select PROCESS LIMITS with the cursor and then
press ENTER. This displays the LIMIT DEFINITION
menu as shown in Figure 8–2. These steps are indicated at the top of Figure 8–4 which is the flow
chart for the Limit Definition. Both the suspect
Limits and Bad Limits share the same logical
structure, so no distinction is made between them
in this flow chart.
LIMIT DEFINITION
SUSPECT LIMITS
BAD LIMITS
LIMIT SELECTION
You normally select the alternate unit of measurement for bad and suspect limits. If you are
welding by time (Seconds), all the weld cycles
have the same weld time. There should be no
measurable deviation from the target time value.
There will however, be some variation in the
power drawn by each part. Since the time is constant, the power and thus the energy will vary
slightly between parts. The limit check therefore
should be in units of energy (Joules). Too low an
energy draw might result from a mechanical stop
interfering with travel. Too much energy drawn
may be caused by a misaligned part resulting in
a large mating surface area.
If you are using dual–pressure mixed mode, a
good limits check would set the companion limit
for each pressure plus the total time and energy limits. In a dual–pressure uniform mode,
only the alternate units for P1, P2 and TOTAL
will be meaningful.
LIMITS in the Limit Definition menu and press
ENTER. The value is now associated with a Bad
Limit and will now terminate the weld cycle if the
measured value fall outside the boundary limits.

Limit Definition Menu
Suspect & Bad Limits
You can select either a Suspect or Bad Part Limit.
A Suspect Limit allows the weld cycle to continue,
but causes an error indication in the display (> or
< for upper or lower limit). If a Bad Limit is
exceeded, the weld cycle is terminated, and an error
indication is displayed (>> or << for upper or lower
limit) until the next weld cycle is initiated. A bad
limit and suspect limit value share the same
memory location. To change a Suspect Limit value
to a Bad Limit value, move the cursor to BAD

Select either Suspect Limits or Bad Limits and press
the ENTER key. The choice can be easily changed
later. The Process Limits menu is then displayed.

Section 10 – Probes and Probe Stracks
The Ultrasonic Probe
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.
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 10–1. 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.
A mounted probe lacks the trigger actuator and
has a HV–BNC connector for attaching the high
voltage coaxial cable. A mounted probe may also
have a booster to change its output amplitude.

DPC™ II Plus and EZ Welder System – User’s Manual
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.

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 10–2. 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 10–
3. 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 surface are stress
risers which may result
in cracks.

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.
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.
2. Remove any foreign matter from the threaded
stud and the mating hole.
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 10—I lists the
torque specifications in units for both English
and Metric systems of measurements. Figure
10–5 is a handy conversion graph if you require
intermediate values not listed in the tables.
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.
NOTE
Always remove a probe stack from the machine in which it is mounted before attaching
or removing a horn.

3. Make sure that the stud in the horn or booster
is tight. See the preceding mounting stud assembly instructions for torque specifications.
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 reDukane Manual Part No. 403–566–01

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 (see Probe Maintenance in Section 13), 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.

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 (see Figure 10–7).
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.
114

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.
Dukane Manual Part No. 403–566–01
Section 10 – Probes and Probe Stracks
Mounting The Stack
A probe-horn assembly or probe-booster-horn assembly (stack) can be mounted into a customerprovided machine to ensure stability and proper
alignment during operation or for automated operation. A stack is secured in a machine by clamping the probe (and booster, when present) at designated locations. Clamping at these designated
locations provides stability to the stack and at the
same time does not interfere with the transmission of ultrasonic vibrations of the stack components. The following rules apply when mounting
a probe system stack.
1.
A probe may be clamped anywhere along its
body (except the 41S30). If it has a side
mounted BNC, then it may require a thin
mounting ring if it is to be clamped near the
top. It may also be clamped below the BNC
connector.
2.
Secure a probe-horn stack by clamping the
probe in two places.
3.
Secure a probe-booster-horn stack by
clamping the probe in one place and the
booster in one place.
4.
Never clamp the horn.
Dukane Manual Part No. 403–566–01
NOTE
Never hold a probe by the housing or booster
by the mounting rings when tightening or loosening from an adjoining component (see Figures
10–6 and 10–7 to identify these parts). Always
use the proper spanner wrenches when tightening or loosening the horn or booster.

OVERLOAD
If the generator OVERLOAD light comes on, it indicates excessive power is being drawn. This could
be caused by a mismatch between the ultrasonic
signal and the resonant characteristics of the acoustic stack. Improperly assembled probes may draw
excessive power if their components were not
properly torqued to specifications. Make sure you
have the correct probe and horn. A 40kHz probe
and a 20kHz DPC may result in an instantaneous
overload. The same is true for the reverse combination. Excessive power drawn by the load may
result in damage to the probe and horn.
NOTE
The OVERLOAD, OVERTEMP and FAULT indicators are triggered by independent sensors. It is
possible to get more than one error indicator.
The ultrasonic output is disabled on any one of
the errors.
OVERTEMP
If the OVERTEMP indicator comes on, it indicates
that one of the generator’s power modules has overheated. This may occur due to a cooling fan failure or excessive dust inside the cooling channel.
The module’s temperature sensor will automatically shut down the generator. The generator will
automatically reset and turn off the OVERTEMP
indicator when the module temperature drops below the 75°C (167°F) trip point.
FAULT
If the generator FAULT light comes on, it indicates
an out–of–tolerance voltage condition. This could
be related to one of two conditions.
1. AC line voltage out of tolerance. Refer to Table
15—I for the AC voltage specifications.
2. Internal DC power supply problems (+5VDC,
+12VDC, –12VDC or +24VDC).
If the AC line voltage is within tolerance, then
the DPC has an internal fault. Contact your
local Dukane representative.

Generator Errors
INPUT TEST Indicator
Steady Red
During power up, the INPUT TEST indicator
should flash red for 5–10 seconds. This indicates the power-up test is running. When the
test has successfully completed, the INPUT
TEST indicator goes out. If the INPUT TEST
indicator flashes and then remains in a steady
red state, there are two possible causes.
1. The AC line level may be out of the specified operating range. Check the AC power to
determine if it is within the limits specified in
Section 15.
2. If the AC power is within specifications,
the DPC has an internal circuit fault preventing normal operation. Contact your local Dukane representative.
Does Not Flash
If the INPUT TEST indicator does not flash during power up, check the AC line input. Both
the rear panel and front panel AC breaker
switches must be in the ON position, and the
DPC line cord must be properly connected to
a live AC outlet. The generator will not turn
on if the line voltage is below the rated minimum. The INPUT TEST indicator should light
up even without a probe connected.
TEST Control Key
The TEST key should cause the first green bar
on the power display to light even without a
probe (see System Test in Section 11 and Figure 11–2). If the TEST control key will not trigger the INPUT TEST light, check that pin 15
of the System Input is not grounded. A contact closure between this pin and ground (pin
2 or 7) will lock out the front panel TEST key.

Top Cover
Stack Inspection
Keep the cover on at all times. The chassis is robust enough to hold considerable weight. However, avoid placing excessively heavy objects on
top of the chassis which may bend or dent the top
cover resulting in damage to internal components.
Examine the mating surfaces of the horn and probe
(and booster if applicable). Look for a shiny, burnished area. This indicates where the surfaces have
been in contact. It will indicate whether the surfaces are flat and making good contact, or if they
are uneven and making poor contact.
Replaceable Parts
The DPC is self contained and has no parts that
are replaceable by the user. If a part needs replacement, contact your local Dukane representative.
See Section 14 for contact information.
Stack Surfaces
Stack Maintenance
It is essential that the mating surfaces of the acoustic stack components be flat and smooth. When
the components are joined together and tightened,
there must not be any air gap between the surfaces.
Mating Surfaces
To establish a maintenance schedule, inspect the
mating surfaces after the first 200–400 hours of
operation. If they require cleaning, halve the next
inspection time. If the surfaces do not require reconditioning, then double the next inspection time.
Surfaces with Even Contact
A flat surface will make even contact and its surface will be evenly burnished across the entire contact area. FigHole for
ure
13–3
Mounting
Stud
shows a surface that has
made
even
contact.
}
If there is any air gap , there will be a loss in power
and efficiency. Air has much higher transmission
losses than the metal horn. Whenever the wavefront
encounters an air gap, the propagation velocity is
significantly reduced and attenuated. This results
in considerable loss. In some cases, the union between the mating surfaces could be so poor as to
prevent the probe stack from operating. This could
result in excessive power drawn from the generator and may damage the mating surfaces. Figure
13–2 shows the mating surfaces on a typical probe
and booster assembly.
Inspection Schedule
Burnished
Area

Flat Surface With Even Contact
Surfaces with Uneven Contact
A surface that is not completely flat will make
uneven contact. Its surface will be burnished only
in the area where it has made contact. Figure 13–4
shows what such a surface would look like. The
inner and outer areas have no marks on it indicating there has
been no contact
in these areas.

Crowning
Corrosion
A surface which is burnished only in the inner ring
area around the stud, indicates the surface is convex or crowned. An example of this is shown in
figure 13–5. To get an idea of amount of deviation from a flat surface, place a straight edge along
the stack element. Since its surface is higher at
the center than at the edges, there will be a gap at
the outer edge of the element.
Corrosion is a factor to consider when determining the overall system performance. Over time,
corrosion can build up on the mating surfaces of
the acoustic stack. This build up interferes with
the efficient transfer of ultrasonic energy to the
parts to be welded. It may contribute to a loss in
performance. Evidence of corrosion build up includes discolored mating surfaces or surfaces encrusted with hard deposits. To extend equipment
life and maintain performance levels, minimize
the system's exposure to corrosive sources.

A surface which is burnished only in the outer ring

from a flat surface, place a straight edge along the
stack element. Since its surface is higher at the edge
than at the center, there will be a visible gap near
the center indicating the depth of the depression.

Reconditioning
Overview
Stack components require reconditioning when the
mating surfaces become uneven or corroded.
These conditions cause poor contact between the
mating surfaces which wastes power. It also makes
tuning the stack difficult, can cause heat damage
to the transducer, and can contribute to a higher
system noise level.
NOTE
Before deciding to recondition the mating surfaces yourself, consider calling Dukane
Corporation's Tooling Support team to discuss
the situation. This is especially important if the
mating surfaces are uneven, because machining of the component(s) may be required.
Factory personnel can offer their skills and experience to help you determine the options
for your particular needs.
See Section 14 for a list of Dukane contacts.
Machining the Mating Surfaces
Instructions on how to properly machine the stack
components is beyond the scope of this manual.
Please call Dukane's Tooling Support Team for machining information. A list of Dukane contacts is
provided in Section 14.
Manual Resurfacing
To manually resurface the stack component mating surfaces, follow the steps given here.
1. Disassemble the acoustic stack and wipe all
the mating surfaces clean. Use a clean cloth
or a paper towel.
2. Examine all the surfaces. If any are corroded,
discolored or coated with hard deposits, they
should be reconditioned.
3. If the surfaces appear to be in good condition,
proceed to step 11.
4. Remove the mounting stud(s) if any are installed.
5. Tape a clean sheet of #400 grit (or finer) emery cloth grit side up to a clean, flat surface
such as a piece of plate glass.
6. Hold the stack component with one hand near
the bottom as shown in Figure 13–7. This view
shows the thumb covering one of the three
spanner wrench holes.
Without applying any downward pressure,
carefully stroke the part in one direction
across the emery cloth. The component's
weight alone is enough pressure as the part is


CAUTION
An improperly altered
horn can cause destructive stress to the
transducer, booster, generator and horn. The
horn should only be
modified by Dukane's
Horn Department.

moved across the emery cloth. Complete a
second stroke across the cloth just like the first.
7. Keep the element's surface flat against the
emery cloth and turn it 120° (one–third of a
complete rotation) so the thumb covers the next
spanner wrench hole. Again move the part
twice across the emery cloth as covered in the
previous step.
8. Give the part a final one–third turn and repeat
the two strokes described in Step 6.
9. Reexamine the mating surfaces. Repeat Steps
6 through 8 until the corrosion has been removed.
10. Clean any grit from the resurfaced element and
the stud mounting threads using a clean cloth
or paper towel.
11. If you had to remove the mounting studs, they
need to be reinserted. Before they are reinserted, it is necessary to ensure proper thread
engagement.
a. Inspect and clean the stud.
b. Clean the threaded hole with a clean cloth.
c. Thread the stud into the hole. Tighten the
stud to the torque specifications given in
Table 10—II.
12. Reassemble the stack and install it using the
procedure in Section 10 using Figures 10–6
and 10–7 as guides.
13. Complete the Operational Test in Section 11.
Dukane Manual Part No. 403–566–01
CAUTION
Use extreme care to keep
the part level when moving
it across the emery cloth. Be
careful not to tilt the part.
An uneven mating surface
could leave the mating surface inoperative.
CAUTION
It is important to perform
only two strokes each
time the component is rotated. Performing more
than two strokes affects
whether the surface remains flat. It is important for the mating surface to maintain its
perpendicularity in relationship to the
component's centering axis. If this relation between the surface and the
axis is altered, the welding system
may become inoperative.

NOTE
If the studs are overtightened, the threads may
deform. Removing a stud that has been overtightened could damage the threads in the
horn/booster. If this should happen, retap the
horn/booster threads and replace the stud with
a new one.

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.
