About Our Programs

Dukane’s educational programs are structured around a general core seminar, supplemented by several related, but more specialized, workshops.

The Introduction to Ultrasonic Plastics Assembly seminar is a comprehensive two-day technical forum designed to provide a general understanding of ultrasonic plastics assembly and its capabilities. Participants will learn practical theory, principles, and benefits of ultrasonic assembly and how to incorporate ultrasonics into their manufacturing processes.

The workshops are designed to be very interactive and participatory. To achieve the maximum value, we highly recommend that participants bring their specific questions, concerns, and applications for discussion and analysis. Professional casual attire is appropriate during all our educational programs.
