The complete cycle time through a production press can be 3 to 6 times shorter. In a traditional press, the dwell time while we wait for the glue to come off sufficiently can be between 20 and 60 seconds. The dwell time for the new Titusonic® dowel is about 2 seconds. The difference is due to the fact that the delivery and exit times from the press are not altered by this process.
Sonic Rivet is approximately 30% stronger than its traditional wooden dowel rival.
No more glue! This simplifies the machinery and eliminates the need for a clean down at the end of shift. It also eliminates the need to clean up the glue that otherwise often spreads on furniture.
Repeatable and Measurable
The new product is the result of an engineered process. The old product is wood and glue, which varies according to a number of factors. The new product is more reliable, repeatable, with performance that is more recordable, measurable and traceable for quality purposes.
