Efficient tire cutting: new sonotrodes guarantee a longer service life
Until now, the use of ultrasonic cutting tools caused two major problems that led to long downtimes: The great wear of the sonotrodes as well as time-consuming cleaning work. With newly developed sonotrodes it was possible to increase the service life up to five times while also minimizing the high maintenance costs. This presentation will give insights into how the material properties and geometry of the cutting tools contribute to this improvement. In addition, ways to optimize the entire cutting process will be explained, making the use of ultrasonic technology more efficient than ever before.
