Training Courses

The basic two-day course in High Power Ultrasonic Technology is aimed primarily at engineers and designer with little or no knowledge of ultrasonics. Each course is limited in numbers and is tailored to the requirements of the individual participants, be it day to day production or new product design.

Topics covered include an overview of the technology - practice and theory, common applications concentrating on plastic welding but also looking at cutting application, fluidsonics (industrial sonochemistry/cleaning) and the equipment involved in each) horn design, manufacture and tuning - both theory and practical, designing for ultrasonic welding, fault finding and diagnostics, health and safety aspects and industrial applications.

The course has a strong "hands on" element, looking at a variety of case studies and has a built in element for discussing delegates own applications and problems as appropriate. Specialised one or two day courses can be tailored to cater for the needs of more specialised groups ranging from practical considerations for shop floor operator to groups of R&D engineers with specialised requirements.

These courses have been run for some 20 years now, and have included some overseas venues including Singapore, Ireland, the USA and Australia.
