The SPC Kits are the first complete packages that will
help you obtain the utmost quality from any 15 kHz or 20 kHz ultrasonic
welder. Each SPC Kit contains three components: an Amplitude Gage, an
Amplitude Test Horn and a Hydraulic Load Gage. The kit also includes a
hardwood carrying case. With proper use, the kit's components allow you
to determine exactly how each welder is performing and to precisely duplicate
welding parameters from unit to unit.

Consistent and correct amplitude is one of the most important factors in achieving a high-quality ultrasonic weld. The Amplitude Gage makes measuring and setting that amplitude easy. Simply bring the gage into contact with the ultrasonic horn and read the total amplitude, in microns, on the gage dial. Use the gage to determine a variance in amplitude from welder to welder, to indicate bad or unbalanced horns, or to check for horn overstressing which, found early, will save many horns from cracking. The gage features rack and pinion adjustments for ease of operation and a total amplitude reading in microns, eliminating the need for conversion.
Amplitude Test Horn
This test horn in conjunction with the Amplitude Gage to measure the exact amount of amplitude being generated by the convertor and booster. The Amplitude Test Horn has no built-in gain, so the reading at its face is the actual amplitude being generated by the convertor and booster.
Hydraulic Load Gage
This gage measures the actual force that the welder is applying to the part being welded. It's a must for insuring consistent weld pressure between machines. Because different welders have different size press cylinders, the same reading on the pressure gage of each machine does not mean the actual down force at the horn is the same. The Hydrauic Load Gage removes the guesswork. Simply bring the horn down on the load gage. Then, adjust the machine's pressure until you have the desired down-pressure reading on the load gage. Do this on each machine to duplicate welding paramenters. At half the price of a load cell, the load gage will soon pay for itself in reduced scrap parts.
