Bear Power Supplies has has expanded its US-based power supply manufacturing capabilities with a new Branson 2000 ultrasonic welder, recently installed at its western New York design and manufacturing center.

The new welder is used to quickly join plastic parts with a strong, permanent bond. It is used to seal the cases of the company’s rugged, encapsulated Bear Power Supply products. It can also be used for the company’s custom power supplies.

“Ultrasonic welding creates plastic housings that are impervious to dust, moisture and other contaminants, with a seal that won’t fail over time or under abuse,” said Michael Allen, president of Bear Power Supplies. “This is the latest example of how we are continually investing in manufacturing capabilities for standard and custom power supplies that meet our customers’ needs.”
