Christmas charity 2020
Herrmann Cares

This year has been challenging, but we are very grateful that we could contribute to the fight against COVID-19 with our ultrasonic technology for face masks and breathing ventilators. And it is in this sense of gratitude and hope that we once again decided to support worthy causes this Christmas

Save 75% plastics
New sustainable paper-based packaging concepts

Together with the packaging service provider Verdesoft, Herrmann Ultraschall has developed a cup and a tube that can be closed by ultrasonics. The packaging concepts have a comparable product protection as conventional plastic packaging and save up to 75% plastic.

Alumnus Thomas Herrmann
appointed to the university council

This is the famous Building M where CEO Thomas Herrmann studied mechanical engineering at the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences from 1984 to 1989. Now the university has appointed him to the university council as alumnus and head of a family-owned yet globally operating technolgy company.

Process control in ultrasonic welding for medical sector
Herrmann-Engineering software tools against Covid-19

In the fight against the corona virus, ventilators and corona tests have come to the fore. Herrmann Ultraschall supplies well-known manufacturers with the welding technology to assemble the necessary components such as mouth and nose contact pieces, floats, filters and housings. The two software tools FSC and SonicCalibrate developed by Herrmann play an important role for quality assurance in the ultrasonic welding process.

Fakuma 2020
Also no Fakuma participation

In light of the corona pandemic, Herrmann Ultraschalltechnik GmbH & Co.KG, Karlsbad, will also not be actively participating at the Fakuma in its usual form this year. Due to the necessary safety and hygiene measures, it wouldn’t be possible to provide an informative and relaxed trade show experience.

Ultrasonic sealing: Enabling Sustainability
Trend towards mono materials and paper

Mono-materials and paper composites for packaging are increasingly in demand and the number of inquiries regarding new recyclable materials is increasing at the ultrasonic laboratory of Herrmann Ultraschall. Many of the major food companies have set themselves high sustainability targets and are testing the new materials.

Nonwovens: soft material stays soft
Ultrasonic bonding for ATB

The use of softness-enhancing Air-Through Bonded materials (ATB) is increasing – typical hygiene applications are acquisition distribution layers (ADL), waist panels, and top sheets. Ultrasonic welding can offer process related and environmental advantages over glue and heat bonding. The nonwovens laboratory at Herrmann Ultraschall provides high-tech support for application solutions when it comes to bonding ATB.

Mask Task Force established
Focus on short transport distances

Herrmann Ultraschall supplies the ultrasonic welding technology for the production of different face masks. Inquiries accumulate. Focus on short transport distances.
