What is ultrasonic welding?
Ultrasonic welding uses high-frequency vibration to melt and weld plastic. A tool vibrates at ultrasonic frequencies and causes concentrated molecular vibration in the weld joint. The friction between the molecules heats and melts the plastic. Once the vibration is stopped, the tool maintains a holding pressure on the joint to create a bond.

What is the difference between vibration and ultrasonic welding?
Occasionally people will confuse vibration welding and ultrasonic welding because both processes use vibratory energy to weld plastic assemblies. However, both processes are very different from each other. Let’s look at the differences between the two processes and how you can use them to your advantage.
