Dukane has been around since 1922, first as an audio-visual equipment pioneer and later using the new field of ultrasonics for NASA and airline industry (pingers for “black-boxes”) and in 1969 ultrasonics for the plastics industry.
Dukane has offered many “firsts” in the industry, but nothing compares to its introduction of the first standard, industry ready and available SERVO ULTRASONIC WELDER. After years of development, Dukane launched the servo welder in 2009. The response has been overwhelming. So much so, that nearly 50% of our sales of ultrasonic equipment is servo based.
We also still offer our traditional pneumatic power drive units, complete with advanced features including load cell triggers, weld by distance, energy or time, and medical configurations ready for validation.
Dukane offers a complete line of “Large Format Plastic” Assembly Equipment including hot plate and vibration welding.
Our application labs – both in Connecticut and Illinois – is an invaluable asset to assist you in development of your process or to help you troubleshoot in the field difficulties. We offer a 24 hour support system, including but not limited to loaner equipment, repair parts and services, and calibration services.
Our patented “Melt-Match” technology in the iQ Servo system has been an industry blockbuster. Independent studies have shown an improvement to 5.1% standard deviation for weld strength with the servo welder compared to 9.4% with a pneumatic welder. A study for standard deviation of a hermetic seal via weld shows the servo at 0.4%, while traditional pneumatic welder yield a standard deviation of 2.9%! That’s right – an almost 90% improvement! Can you imagine increasing your confidence in your process by almost 90%???
Dukane probe generators offer the option to monitor and weld by distance using an analog (LVDT) sensor. Integrating this feature support into our generator offers several advantages over competitive systems. They are as follows: Cost savings over PLC based distance systems PLC based systems require the purchasing of separate analog input modules. The Dukane distanceRead More

Since the introduction of the Dukane IQ ServoPress Ultrasonic Welding System in 2007, the benefit it has brought to their customer base cannot be overstated. Just ask Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. (SEL) – SEL is a world leader in the design and manufacturing of protection, monitoring, control, communications and metering products for power grids and powerRead More
Check out this video to learn about Dukane’s patented Melt-Detect™ technology for Servo driven Ultrasonic Welding process. This technology ensures complete initiation of melt in the contact area of plastic assembly, before prompting the press to initiate downward movement. This improves weld strength and reduces stress in the welded assembly.Read More
A quick update on advancements in the field of ultrasonic welding from Dukane, who we represent locally. Ultrasonic plastic welding is the joining or reforming of thermoplastics through the use of heat generated from high-frequency mechanical motion. During the process, high-frequency electrical energy is converted into high-frequency mechanical motion, which in conjunction with applied force,Read More
This video demonstrates single step process of cutting and sealing a thin membrane in a medical device component using Dukane’s iQ Servo Ultrasonic Welding system. The welding surface is 4.1 mm wide and 9.5 mm long. Constant or variable speed programming available in iQ Servo allows users to match the melt rate of the materialRead More
When you choose to purchase equipment from Production Components or one of our principals, you are purchasing our local support as well. Here’s an example… In an effort to provide the best customer service possible, Scott White recently went to a customer’s site to pull a Weber Screwdriving spindle off of a production line. It seems thatRead More
Medical devices are complex by nature and designed to assist in healing the human body. Therefore, these devices have the highest quality standards and are subject to stringent regulations. In addition, staying cost effective and employing sustainable manufacturing practices are emerging needs for Medical Device Manufacturers (MDM). Dukane, as a provider of assembly solutionsRead More
