Ultrasonic plastic welding is a straightforward process that can take on many unique forms. Regardless of the specific application, the fundamentals of ultrasonic welding are the same. By using ultra high frequency sound waves, plastic is heated locally via friction, and deformed to meet specifications.
This process is extremely precise, and can be applied to many kinds of plastic. The materials are bonded without adhesives or the application of heat. While there is a very small amount of heat generated by the process, the equipment relies on sound waves, not direct heating, to create the weld.
