The AGM Pro ultrasonic generator series for welding machines has passed the CANopen conformance test. CiA has tested it successfully.
The ultrasonic generator is designed for installation in automation lines and special machines. “When developing it, we focused particularly on ensuring simple integration and easy operation,” stated the manufacturer on its website. Due to its slim design, it can be incorporated into small spaces in electrical cabinets, where a cooling system ensures that a low-operating temperature is maintained. The manufacturer of the generator, headquartered in Switzerland, is a member of the Crest Group since 1997. It is represented in over 40 countries.
The AGM Pro can be integrated into the existing system via the CANopen interface. It can be operated via the touch display or the Proconnect web application, which can be accessed via the Ethernet port. This enables you to parameterize the generator, save up to eight parameter data sets, transfer data to other generators, configure system settings, and check the generator status as well as welding process values in real-time. Additionally, the welding data can be recorded.
The ultrasonic generator provides welding results, which are reproducible. There are six welding modes supported, in order to optimize the welding process. The amplitude regulation function allows adjustments between 15 % and 100 % in 1-% increments.
The AGM Pro builds on the technical principles of the AGM ultrasonic generator and has been specially designed for automated ultrasonic welding of thermoplastic materials and molded parts and for ultrasonic stamping of bumpers. It is also suited for ultrasonic cutting of non-woven and technical textiles or foods such as cheese, wraps, and cakes.
The generators are controlled via the system’s own PLC (programmable logic controller). In addition to the Proconnect web application and the PLC, the 3,5-inch touch display can be used to operate the ultrasonic generators. The start window shows the latest values and the status of the device.
