Project Description

SONORUS EURECAT

A flexible, reliable and efficient solution in costs in order to produce functional micro functional parts with complex shapes. It reduces the energy use, enables savings in toll-related expenses and minimize the degradation risks of plastic.

SONO”R”US project develops and optimizes the first ultrasonic moulding machine ready for being sold on the market. The innovative concept of SONO “R” US offers major advantages for the moulding process, reducing the energy use by up to 90% in comparison with the conventional injection technologies. Because electric heaters are not used, the process is highly efficient, minimising the deterioration risks of the plastic. Moreover, it is a low-pressure process that enables savings of 25% to 35% in toll-related expenses.

In  2014, the SONO “R” US project was awarded as one of the best projects in the EU Framework Programme in the field of Industrial Technologies.
