Piezoceramic Transducers Selection Method for High Power Ultrasonic Devices

Title variants
Languages of publication
A universal method for selecting piezoceramic transducers used in high power ultrasonic devices such as ultrasonic welding and cutting systems has been presented. The key element of such systems is a high power ultrasonic sandwich transducer consisting of a stack of piezoceramic transducers mounted between two masses. Because of relatively large dispersion of piezoceramic transducer parameters between production lots, they must be selected in order to obtain a high quality and long-life sandwich transducer. Presented selection method consists of three stages. First, the parametric identification of the Butterworth-Van Dyke equivalent circuit model is performed based on piezoceramic transducer electrical impedance measurements. Next, the electrical impedance frequency samples are estimated using the identified Butterworth-Van Dyke model. Finally, the k-means clustering algorithm is used to select the best fitted piezoceramic transducer sets.
