Ultrasonic welding remains one of the fastest and most cost effective techniques for welding smaller thermoplastic parts.  Using ultrasonic welding, one part is held stationary in a holding fixture while the other part is vibrated acoustically against it under pressure, creating frictional heat at their joining surfaces.  Forward Technology, a Crest Group Company, can design custom ultrasonic tooling for any application to install and operate in any type of Ultrasonic Welding Machine.

With over twenty-five years of experience in ultrasonic welding processes, our tooling engineers possess unmatched skill and experience to develop even the most complex ultrasonic tooling and part holding fixtures.

Ultrasonic Welding Systems

At our facility in Cokato, Minnesota, we have a wide array of ultrasonic welding machines in our lab for prototyping and demonstration of production ultrasonic tooling. We can adapt ultrasonic tooling to fit nearly any manufacturer’s welding equipment. We also design and build custom ultrasonic welding systems that incorporate Rinco or Mecasonic's ultrasonic components, providing a single source solution for your high volume assembly requirements.

In addition to frame based multi-head ultrasonic systems, we also offer robotic end-of-arm ultrasonic welding solutions. Incorporating ultrasonics with robotics are great for applications with contoured shapes that require the horn to be presented to the part in multiple angles, negating the benefit of a multi-head or gantry based system. Integration with a robot provides endless product options for future use, benefiting customer's for years to come as new products are developed and introduced to the market.

Rinco Ultrasonic Welding Systems

As part of the Crest Group, our partners include Rinco Ultrasonics-USA in Danbury, CT www.rinco-usa.com a world renowned Swiss manufacturer of ultrasonic welding machines.  Using Rinco Ultrasonic Welding technology, Forward Technology engineers can design stand-alone or automated custom ultrasonic welding systems to increase through put and perform secondary assembly functions like leak testing & park marking.

Mecasonic Ultrasonic Welding Systems

Another partner of Forward Technology is Mecasonic, a world renowned manufacturer of ultrasonic machines and components based in France. Similar to Rinco products, Forward’s knowledgeable and experienced team of engineers can incorporate these Mecasonic welders and components into anything from simple benchtop systems to fully automated continual welding systems. A full tooling department gives us the flexibility to design, build, and prototype all ultrasonic horns and part fixturing in our Cokato facility.
