AGM Pro Ultrasonic Generator
For Automated Welding Processes
Rinco Ultrasonics, Romanshorn, Switzerland, premieres the new AGM Pro ultrasonic generator at K 2016. This new ultrasonic generator is designed to be built into automation lines and special purpose machines for controlling components. The digital, Industry 4.0-capable AGM Pro is an upgraded version of the AGM ultrasonic generator and is particularly suitable for automotive applications.
Like its predecessor, this completely redeveloped ultrasonic generator is of narrow design but smaller in height and depth and almost 50% lighter. Due to its smaller size, the AGM Pro is ideally suited for installation in switchgear cabinets, where depth and height dimensions are most restricted. The digital inputs and outputs are clearly arranged and are easy to connect up using screw terminals.
The new ultrasonic generator primarily differs from its predecessor in terms of parameter input and process analysis and, unlike its predecessor, is capable of storing 16 parameter sets. Welding parameters can also be defined via the integrated 3.1" color touch-screen display and via a mobile terminal or PC using a specially developed AGM Pro web application. The ultrasonic generator is driven via an PLC.
Numerous Communications Protocols
The ultrasonic generator is equipped with a communications module for numerous industrial protocols. The ultrasonic generators were previously limited to the RS485 and CANopen protocols. The new communications module now additionally covers further protocols such as Ethernet/IP, Profibus, Profinet, EtherCAT, DeviceNet and others. Communication with the PLC is easy to configure and is possible for any equipment.
The AGM Pro has a soft start and soft stop function to ensure that complex sonotrodes can be gently ramped up and down. There are a total of six selectable welding modes: time, energy, time and/or energy, contact switch-off and continuous. The AGM Pro digitally acquires all parameters, including error messages, during operation, it being possible to break the errors down into "generator", "oscillator system" and "limits". For quality control, numerous limit values can be set which trigger a warning or stop the machine. Once the welding operation is complete, an operator can, using the web application, access, analyse and document all important results and welding parameters.
