Assembly Demands Grow for Medical Plastics

A study done at Value Plastics, a molder of precision molded couplers for medical applications, shows that a servo welder produces hermetic welds with a standard deviation of 0.4% compared to 2.9% when using a pneumatic welder. Those results were reported last month at ANTEC in Cincinnati, OH by three officials at Dukane Corp., which… Continue Reading Assembly Demands Grow for Medical Plastics

Advantages of Servo Driven Ultrasonic Welder

Ultrasonic welding is one of the most widely used processes for bonding polymers, valued for its speed, flexibility, and low cost. Recently, there has been a call for more controlled and consistent ultrasonic welding processes, as part designs become more complex and requirements more stringent.  There is also a need for strong, dimensionally consistent parts… Continue Reading Advantages of Servo Driven Ultrasonic Welder

Why am I getting inconsistent parts?

QUESTION: I’m getting inconsistent parts even though I’m following the same parameters. Why? ANSWER: You need to look at all elements of the project in order to pinpoint the problem. We suggest looking at the molded parts for warpage, heat sinks and cavity-to-cavity variations. Look at the joint design to make sure you have the… Continue Reading Why am I getting inconsistent parts?
