Ultrasonic metal welding is a solid-state welding process that produces coalescence through the simultaneous application of localized high-frequency vibratory energy and moderate clamping forces. This article discusses the parameters to be considered when selecting a suitable welder for ultrasonic metal welding. It details the personnel requirements, advantages, limitations, and applications, namely, wire welds, spot welds, continuous seam welds, and microelectronic welds of ultrasonic metal welding.
