We specialize in difficult and new power ultrasonics applications.

Sonotrode Ultrasonic Cavitation

  • Ultrasonic Liquid Processing:  High Power Ultrasonic processors can produce dense cavitation with strong acoustic streaming that will provide excellent shear and mechanical mixing for dispersion, emulsions, diffusion, and can make rapid chemical reactions.
  • Ultrasonic Extrusion / Ultrasonic Assisted Extrusion: Application of ultrasonic vibration energy on an extrusion die or mandrel can significantly change extrusion conditions including die pressure (e.g. 20% to 70% reduction) through a combination of friction reduction and modified material properties. In many cases when sufficient energy is applied additional benefits such as mixing and dispersion of additives and nanoparticles in the flowing materials can be achieved. Such changes can result in significantly improved production output, material properties and finish. For more information visit our web page dedicated to our Ultrasonic Extrusion applications and equipment.

    • Ultrasonic Glass Extrusion
    • Ultrasonic Food Extrusion
  • Ultrasonic Drawing / Ultrasonic Assisted Drawing: When Ultrasonic vibrations are applied to a drawing die or calibration die the drawing forces can be significantly reduced through a combination of friction reduction and to a lesser extent some plastic deformation. Benefits include improved production output, improved die life, and improved surface finish. For more information visit our web page dedicated to our Ultrasonic Drawing applications and equipment.
