The use of ultrasonic welding makes it possible to firmly bond numerous materials with each other. The two biggest categories of materials in this context, however, are plastics and metals. As a rule, thermoplastic materials are well suited for ultrasonic welding; with metals it is particularly aluminum materials as well as copper and its alloys that can be bonded very efficiently and with a high degree of quality. Other metals such as nickel, gold and silver can be ultrasonically bonded; however, these tend to be special applications which require a precise analysis prior to the selection of the ultrasonic process.
