High Pressure Silicone Ultrasonic Stack Grease

$1.95

The function of grease in the joint is to:

1. Fill the microscopic valleys in the surface of the tooling to improve acoustic transfer from one component to the next.

2. Remain in the joint so the metal of the two pieces of tooling do not become “clad” together by the action of the ultrasound and thus impossible to disassemble.

Never use grease and a polymer washer in the same joint.

Description

The function of grease in the joint is to:

1. Fill the microscopic valleys in the surface of the tooling to improve acoustic transfer from one component to the next.

2. Remain in the joint so the metal of the two pieces of tooling do not become “clad” together by the action of the ultrasound and thus impossible to disassemble.

The correct amount of grease to apply is that which completely coats both surfaces and not any more. Attempting to wipe off the grease from the tool with a grease-coated finger generally leaves about the right amount on the surfaces. Grease is never applied to the stud. Never use both grease and a polymer washer in the same joint.

This high pressure silicone grease is recommended over other types of grease, especially polymer or petroleum greases, because of its resistance to high temperatures which may be present in some ultrasonic stack assemblies.

This grease is packaged by the original manufacturer, Dow Corning, in a handy size packet (ampoule). We invite you to compare the size of this packet against the penny in the picture (not included) and against the packets supplied by others and then consider the value offered.

20KHz Stack Vise for Ultrasonic Tooling
This stainless steel stack vise is designed specifically to clamp 20KHz converter front slugs and booster spanner "collars" during assembly or disassembly to reduce damage to expensive ultrasonic stack components. The vise features two clamping chambers, one for tooling 1.5" (25.4 mm) dia. and one for tooling 1.8" (45.7 mm) dia. The two-pin hinge design allows the upper jaw to "float" and seek the best clamp position on the tool for maximum contact. The securing bolt has a long lever handle that can be re-positioned out of the way once secured. The securing bolt can be completely removed so the upper vise jaw can be fully opened. The steel spanner-hole pins are set in stepped holes such that they can be driven out from the bottom of the vise should they ever need replacement.

Polymer (Mylar) Washers for Stack Joints (35 pack)
These washers made of heat-resistant Mylar(TM) can be used instead of high pressure silicone grease in ultrasonic stack joints. IMPORTANT: Use a new washer each time the tooling is reassembled. Do not use both grease and a washer in the same joint. Washers come 35 to a pack. Order the number of packs you want, not the number of washers.
