The trendsetting cutting technology
In many industries intelligent ultrasonic cutting established itself as the preferred method for clean and fast separation without any waste. Scoring or cutting of food items like dough, cheese and meat, or separating of materials like fleece, carpet, foam, rubber, light-weight materials, foil, or textiles without fraying or unraveling, the Industry 4.0-ready ultrasonic technology is the right tool for you. This process provides another advantage: The combination of cutting and welding seals the edges in the same process step.
Broad range of applications
Process safety, reproducible results, and time savings gained by the speed of the process are only some of the advantages you can gain by employing ultrasonic technology. Depending on your individual requirements we offer vertical or horizontal cutting solutions which can be realized as continuous cut or in a cycle mode.

The application possibilities of composite materials are growing rapidly. However, their production poses a lot of challenges for manufacturers. Together with our customers, our R&D department and the application specialists, we develop innovative ultrasonic solutions for complex cuts and materials.
Efficient and globally successful: Our Industry Solutions
With more than 2000 projects in over 60 countries Weber Ultrasonics advanced to one of the premier suppliers to system manufacturers of the most diverse industries. 50 years of experience and our detailed understanding for specific requirements of different industries enable us to develop tailored, innovative and, first and foremost, intelligent ultrasonic solutions.
The right blade to make the cut – Cutting Sonotrodes
We always manufacture our Sonotrodes specifically for each customer and product employing FEM in the design process. Even complex shapes and punches can be designed this way. Based on the individual requirements, high-end materials like Titanium, Aluminum alloys and sintered steel will be used. Speer tips, sickle blades, punches or cross Sonotrodes – we manufacture the blade with the right shape for each application. All of our Sonotrodes shine with their outstanding cutting depth giving you the right tool to cut towering cakes, bread or cheese wheels as well as other voluminous materials in one pass.
Cross-Sonotrode for piercing
We developed the Cross-Sonotrode to achieve cross cuts in one process step resulting in faster cycle times and higher precision.
The Lambda1 cutting Sonotrode with reduced node point allows the cutting of tall products. All Sonotrodes for food processing conform to EG Regulation EG1935/2004.
Speer tips and sickle blades are being used for the continuous cutting or scoring of foils and dough.

Production & Documentation
Defined border – better edges
Rubber, plastics or butter cream – almost any material can be separated efficiently with ultrasonics. Ultrasonic cutting already offers a solution for most tasks. This technology can be used in many different applications and can be separated into different application fields.
Process safety and reproducible results are extremely important for cyclic cutting. Innovative ultrasonic technology meets these requirements and provides convincing results with especially precise material separation and high process speeds.
Continuous ultrasonic cutting, e.g. with a Roll-Sonotrode is ideal for the border cutting of long fabric tolls. The simultaneous bonding of seams or the sealing of edges makes this process especially efficient. Further, ultrasonics offer the required reliability and process safety for endless operation.
This process allows to focus the energy on defined areas which leads to precise perforating without introducing heat to large areas of material. This provides a positive effect on the borders of the perforation and avoids hardening of soft materials and welding strings.
Combined Cutting and Welding
Ultrasonic technology shows its strength when cutting and welding simultaneously. It produces not only high-strength seams with minimal overlap but also allows for the cutting of edges and sealing of borders in the same process to prevent fraying.
Ultrasonic stamping is similar to ultrasonic cutting. Stamping edges are being plastified as well. However, while there is no fixed and predefined outline in cutting, for ultrasonic stamping the shape is defined by the tool.
