Ultrasplice 40
Metal Welding
40 kHz Portable
Ultrasonic Wire Splicer
The Branson Ultrasplice-40 joins wires
quickly and reliably while providing
maximum maneuverability. It splices
up to 4 #16 AWG or a total of 6mm sq
wires in-line, or in a pig tail configuration.
Splicing ultrasonically results in a superior
electrical connection over crimping,
soldering, or resistance welding, and
offers savings in power consumption,
elimination of consumables, and longer
tool life.
The Ultrasplice 40's convenient design
enables the operator to feed wires easily
into the splicing nest. A gathering
mechanism positions wires accurately
and catches frayed wires to ensure a
high quality weld. Typically, a weld is
completed in less than one half second.
Since ultrasonics does not generate
appreciable heat, wires can be handled
immediately after splicing.
The Ultrasplice 40 can be readily used for
wire tipping (the solidification of the ends
of strands of wires to keep them from
splaying). This process is especially useful
to prevent unravelling when wires must
be plugged into a connector. The wire
is placed into the large nest area and the
Ultrasplice 40 is activated to collect the
strands and weld them into a precise
The Ultrasplice 40 is easily mounted into
an automated wire preparation machine
for total automation of the tipping
process. Production rates in the automated mode can be as high as 60 parts
per minute. The rugged construction
of this system and long tool life makes
the Ultrasplice 40 the perfect method for
wire tipping.
Tool life usually exceeds 100,000 welds.
Electrical power consumption with
ultrasonics averages only 1/30 of the
amount used by resistance welding, and
ultrasonic welding eliminates the need
for costly clips, solder, and flux.

Metal Welding
Every Branson product is backed by
our technical staff, who provide our
customers with training in operation
and maintenance.
The Branson Touch Screen
controller monitors and displays all
ultrasonic metal weld parameters to
maintain the highest standards in
weld quality. It features an advanced
microprocessor control that monitors
the weld cycle through a power
feedback signal. The power in watts
applied to the weld is integrated over
the weld time to determine the total
energy applied. This automatically
adjusts the weld cycle to produce
perfect quality welds, regardless of
part variations.

Control limits on the Touch Screen
controller can be pre-set for weld time
and power. If any weld falls outside the
preset limits, a signal alerts the operator
