Try Spin Welding!

Find out how spin welding could help your production requirements today.

The concept of spin or rotional welding is very simple: the base component is kept static whilst the upper moulding is rotated and forced together. This action creates frictional heat that, when cooled and under carefully maintained pressure, creates a hermetic seal of exceptional strength. This occurs in only a few seconds.

How To Ultrasonically Weld Plastic In 3 Simple Steps

Posted by Andrzej Adamek on May 29, 2018 4:17:08 PM

Plastic welding is the process of making a molecular bond between two thermoplastics that are compatible, which when cooled return to a solid form.

One straight forward process for doing this is ultrasonic plastic welding. Whatever the specifics of a particular application, ultrasonic welding's fundamentals always remain the same, employing sound waves that are ultra-high in frequency, plastic can be heated with the ensuing friction, creating a strong bond.
