AMI Coffee-Conference: “Single serve” innovations
Tight capsules and delicious crema by ultrasonic

Thomas Schmid from STIR magazine has summarized all the important results and innovations, from the recycling of the aluminum capsule to the "Coffee Sphere" and the advantages of ultrasonic welding for coffee pods.

Joining und processing of non-woven materials
Ultrasonic technology for filter media

Many applications in mechanical and installation engineering as well as in vehicle construction are increasingly requiring the utilisation of filters for the protection of the environment from pollutants and for the protection of the machines, installations and internal combustion engines from particles and foreign bodies.

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.

US headquarters expansion near Chicago
Planned growth in North America

After nearly 30 years in the US market, we are expanding the area of our Bartlett, Illinois, facility to 2,800 m². The expansion should support the planned growth of Herrmann Ultrasonics in the new decade, create additional production space and enable stronger employee growth.

Christmas donation for school associations
“Herrmann Cares” supports educational projects

This year's Christmas donation in the context of our charity initiative “Herrmann Cares” is intended for education and goes to two schools in Karlsbad, Germany, to make subject-related project days affordable for all students.

Ultrasonic welding of non-ferrous metals
Visualization for a stable process

Herrmann Ultraschall has been a specialist in ultrasonic welding for decades and is presenting its new HiS VARIO welding system for metal welding such as copper and aluminum at Productronica. The system can be used as a manual workstation or automatically integrated into production lines.

K2019: The welding workplace of the future
New dimension of communication and ergonomics

Optimal working conditions with regard to human-machine interaction and the workplace are, in addition to digitization, an important focus of the new machine generation HiQ G2 from Herrmann Ultraschall.

Ultrasonic welding of bio-based plastics
Ready for the age without oil?

As of now there are few inquiries for the welding of recycled materials, ie plastics that already have been processed once or more before. The weldability must be determined empirically in the test laboratory.

K2019: Configuration instead of programming
Save time with the digital twin

With the new machine generation HiQ G2 for K 2019, Herrmann Ultraschall has emphasized the subject of digitization and visualization in ultrasonic welding.

Sophisticated geometry - and hermetically tight
Welding instead of gluing for sophisticated medical engineering function components

The cleanroom production of a biochip system made of semi-crystalline plastic presented a great challenge for the manufacturer. The upper part with test chamber must be assambled with the support layer in an absolutely tight manner. After all gluing trials had failed, the methodical approach in the weld process saved the project.
