Material panels to be joined are positioned on the work table, positioned into the guiding device, and held in place with the stationary clamps at machine start position.
A moveable clamp is used to hold the material at end of seam position, and provide a slight tension on the material. After pressing the “start” button, the ultrasonic mechanism moves on a precision linear guide down the work table, gluing the panels together.
When the end of material is detected, the machine stops, releases the clamps, and returns to the starting position. The joined panels are then rolled up to position for the next seam.
As required, the guiding device can be exchanged to perform hemming operations.
