Thermoplastics/Composite materials

Thermoplastics/Composite materials

Plastics are roughly classified into “thermoplastic resin” and “thermosetting resin”. Both can be softened by being heated, but their states after iced and hardened are different. Thermoplastic resin can be softened again by being heated but thermosetting resin can never be changed its state again even by being heated. Composite material is a material made from multiple materials. Lately, composite material made from resin with other materials as glass fiber impregnated are cut. 

Common uses of Thermoplastics/Composite materials

  • Automotive parts (interior material / exterior material)
  • Oil jug
  • Electric parts housing
  • Public works / Building
  • Daily necessities / household goods

Examples of cut by ultrasonic cutter

Products for Thermoplastics/Composite materials

Oscillator

SH-3510

High-power Ultrasonic Cutter featuring Maximum Output of 500 W

The oscillator with a maximum power output of 500 W enabled powerful

cutting of difficult-to-cut and extra-tough work pieces. Abrasion resistant

carbide blade with 1 mm thickness can be used. Exchanging signals for

on/off, emergency stop, change of output level, and other features with

automated machinery or industrial robots is, of course, possible.

SF-3400 II

Oscillator

SF-3400 II

High-output cutter for manual operation: Assisting manual operations with clear cutting

This is a high-power ultrasonic cutter featuring the ultrasonic power

output of 220 W. The tool’s ultrasonic vibrations at a frequency of 22 kHz

(22,000 vibrations per second) drastically reduce the cutting resistance.

Varieties of materials can be cut even more rapidly and cleanly with a

lower processing pressure. A function to enable constant monitoring of

loads during cutting was added anew, thereby ensuring added safety and

user friendliness.

CE-compliant, versatile manual-type ultrasonic cutter

This is a manual type ultrasonic cutter, which daringly pursued nice Features

user-friendliness. It is provided with a portable handle and storage

rack for use at various jobsites. It is best fitted for a wide range of

applications including carbon prepregs, resins, rubber, and fabrics. For

safety measures, the activation of ultrasonic vibration is reported with

illumination and sound. The product complies with the CE Standard.
