In Sonic-Mill equipment, ultrasonic power begins with a 1000-watt power supply that converts conventional line voltage to 20kHz electrical energy. This high-frequency electrical energy is provided to a piezo-electric converter, which changes it into a mechanical motion, ultrasonic motion. This motion from the converter is then amplified and transmitted to the horn and cutting tool, causing the tool face to vibrate perpendicularly thousands of times per second with no side-to-side motion.
We require a print or drawing of your application requirements that includes enough information to determine machining features, tolerances, material, and any other specifics. Typically, our customers provide the material to be machined.
Sinker: This method allows you to drill small holes (.015" diameter) in thin materials. There are also advantages of cutting shapes and designs , as well as multi-hole drilling (ability to drill multiple holes simultaneously in an array of 1" maximum diameter (1" horn size).
Rotary: This method allows you the ability to drill deep holes (deep hole drilling) up to 11" depths in most materials. This method is more accurate in hole positioning and movement (+/-.002").
Yes, we have a spindle exchange program in place. You can return your spindle for a core credit and we will exchange with a newly re-manufactured spindle. Please specify which type of spindle is to be returned; BSP spindle (Branson style), Kneemill or bedmill. Please call for pricing.
