Ultrasonic knives have become a boon to the textile, food service and plastic industries. Their extreme precision and low-dust factor continue to make them ideal for surgical procedures, and ultrasonic knives are increasingly being used by the textile industry to cut corduroy and Napoleons in high volume.
For textile manufacturers, there are two modes of operation for an ultrasonic cutter: plunge and continuous. If you need to cut and seal fabric edges at the same time (for example, in creating a buttonhole), you will use the plunge mode, using the ultrasonic horn to seal the edges of the material as you cut. Using the continuous mode, the horn remains stationary under the fabric, and the ultrasonic blade allows you to make a clean cut without fraying.
Carolina Knife Co. manufactures a number of custom and specialty knives, including ultrasonic horns and blades.
Food preparers have been experimenting with ultrasonic knives since the 1970s, and demand has risen exponentially since then. The system uses an ultrasonic generator that sends sound vibrations to the knife at a range beyond human hearing, above 20 KHz. The high precision of ultrasonic knives manufactured by Carolina Knife Co. makes clean cuts with little waste through such delicate materials as cakes, gelatins and fine cheeses.
