7.1
Converter
The converter is a sensitive instrument.
Please handle with great care!
The converter (K) is the core of every ultrasonic welder.
It belongs to the category of piezo-electric converters.
Piezoelectric converters consist of several ceramic disks that
change their size when an electric voltage is applied.
In the case of the ultrasonic welding converter, an alternating
voltage with the nominal frequency (e.g. 35 kHz) is applied. This
electric signal is converted by the piezoelectric elements into a
mechanical vibration of identical frequency.
A mechanical vibration in the axial direction is thus available at the
front end of the converter (K).
The efficiency of a piezoelectric converter is extremely high. The
small losses which occur during the conversion are noticeable in
a rise in temperature of the converter.
Residual heat is dissipated by natural convection thanks to the
special design of the converter.
Special applications require dissipation of heat by additional
ventilation (optional).
The converter must not be warmed up to more than
50°C at the contact point. Converter, horn and generator may be damaged by overheating.
The converter must be fastened with a tightening
torque of 15-25 Nm.
RL35HWV40/GB/NO7768/16279
7-1
Elements
7.3
Horn
Any changes to the metallic body of the horn will
affect its vibration characteristics and should not be
performed without consulting the manufacturer!
3
The horn (3) is the tool that transfers the ultrasonic energy
produced by the converter to the welding object in the form of an
intensive vibration.
Since workpieces come in a variety of forms, horns have to be
adapted to the specific requirements.
The horn is an acoustic body tuned to the resonance frequency.
This accounts for restricted shaping possibilities.
The geometrical form of the horn should be kept as simple as
possible.
Other important factors in addition to the geometrical shape of a
horn are:
1. The horn must be tuned to the resonance frequency of
35'000 Hz (±50 Hz) at 20°C. During operation a tolerance
of +150 Hz / -250 Hz is permitted.
2. For the horn to vibrate correctly it must be designed as far
as possible to move in an axial direction at its transmission
surface.
The aim is to produce pulses on the horn face that act as
far as possible in an axial direction and which can be
transmitted to the welding object.
3. The amplitude of the horn is determined by means of its
design. For the production of horns it is vital to have a
knowledge of the load capacity of various materials.
7.3.1 Horn materials
Horns are manufactured exclusively from specifically high-strength
materials; namely high-strength aluminium, titanium and steel
alloys.
The choice of material depends largely on the intended application.
Various factors are crucial for choosing the material:
1. The strength of the horn material in conjunction with the
amplitude to be attained.
2. The surface condition of the material and its related
surface finishing characteristics.
3. The ultrasonic transmission characteristics.
4. The heat conducting characteristics of the horn material.
Allowance must also be made for the fact that horns are subject
7-2
RL35HWV40/GB/NO7768/16279
Elements
to immense mechanical loads.
It is extremely important, therefore, to design the horn in such a
way as to enable the plastic part to be joined under optimal
conditions.
The horn surface may have a coating for abrasive plastics for
longer service life.
RINCO has a long record and a lot of experience in horn
manufacture.
Horns that are manufactured without the necessary theoretical
and practical experience are bound to lead to unsatisfactory and
poor welding results and hence to inferior product quality.
In some cases the vibration system and generator
may be damaged.
The horn must be fastened with a tightening torque of
15 - 25 Nm.

Detailed description of
functions from the program
selector switch
Ultrasonic devices are used in a wide range
of fields today, so that users have a variety of
different control requirements. A welding installation needs to be able to be connected to
the available peripheral devices.
For this reason, a number of programmes
have been created to suit the most common
peripheral requirements. These programmes
are permanently installed in an integrated
computer and can be preselected via rotary
switches.
The program selector switch is deliberately
located on the card module (see fig. 4a)
inside the housing in order to prevent unauthorised changes to the program.
2
8.2.1 Before changing a program
2
1. Disconnect the device from the power
supply.
2. Unscrew the 4 fastening screws (33).
3
3. Take out the generator module by
pulling the grips (26).

Ultra sound operates automatically according to the pre-set
time without holding "start 1".
Re-activating "start 1":
The ultra sound is stopped.
If the time has been set at ”00.0”
the ultra sound is maintained
with "start 1".

8.2.2 Afterpulse (shake-off impulse)

UGF
The afterpulse can be activated with a jumper
on the main circuit board. The afterimpulse
occurs 0.3 seconds after the holding time has
expired.
J4
”Hardware test program” jumper
(only for use by the manufacturer)
J5
P
”US afterpulse” jumper
Main circuit board
The standard setting of J4 and J5 is "OFF".
25 ms
75 ms
The time of the afterpulse can not
be changed.
8.2.3 Soft Start
The greatest strain on the transducer system
occurs when the oscillations are first stimulated. To avoid overloading and resultant damage, a soft-start device has been installed
in the RINCO generator, which can be continuously adjusted from 25ms to 75ms. Your
device is supplied with a setting of 50ms.
The adjustment potentiometer (P3) for the
soft-start device is located on the card module inside the housing in order to prevent
accidental alterations of the setting.
(Only UGF)
Important: Before switching on the
card module again, always make
sure that it is fully and correctly
reinserted (front panel flush).

Cleaning and maintenance
9.1
General maintenance jobs
Cleaning and maintenance jobs may only be carried
out by specially trained staff.
Before beginning maintenance jobs, make sure that
all energy sources such as the power and compressed air supply are disconnected.
Attention: Never clean the keypad or plastic sheeting
of the generator with caustic agents.

9.2
Hand held welding device
The hand held welding device requires no special maintenance.
However, regularly cleaning the
- converter (K),
- horn (3),

is essential for a long and trouble-free operation of the device
system.

Vibration system
Work may only be carried out on
the vibration system and converter

switched off! High voltage!
2
Avoid contact with the RF socket
of the converter.
2
Never connect any measuring instruments to the RF socket of the
converter!
The converter is electrically charged even after switching off the
generator.

Threaded coupling
3
The converter (K) and horn (3) are joined
together by threading couplings.
Tightening torque: 15 - 25 Nm
Black marks on the surface of the horn (3) are
easy to remove.
1. Lay out a polishing cloth on a level
surface.
2. Draw the blackened area over the
polishing cloth.
