ULTRASONIC PLASTIC WELDING
Ultrasonic plastic welding uses high-frequency mechanical vibrations transmitted through thermoplastic parts to create frictional heat at a joint interface. The frictional heat generated causes the part interfaces to melt and fuse while pressure is applied. This technique is fast, efficient, non-contaminating and requires no consumables.
AMS will help you obtain repeatable ultrasonically welded results by working closely with you to create the best joint design for your application. We will also assist you in analyzing the welding characteristics of thermoplastics as well as an understanding of how polymer structure and other factors affect the weldability of various polymers (including polymer structure, melt temperature, melt index, modulus of elasticity, and chemical makeup). Our engineering team will ensure that you get the results you are looking for.
