Which Applications are Best Suited for 2μm Laser Welding?

While you will find 2μm lasers being used in a broad range of industries including automotive, general industrial, films, and packaging, the majority of 2μm welding demand is coming from the medical industry.  Typical applications include: microfluidic devices, tubing, bags, connectors, catheters, on-body devices, diagnostic cassettes, fluid chambers and tanks, filtration devices, and more.  Microfluidics, diagnostic cassettes, and assays often require components to be transmissive in either… Continue Reading Which Applications are Best Suited for 2μm Laser Welding?

What is the right material for making Ultrasonic Horns?

Ultrasonic horn stretches and shrinks in length during the welding process like a spring. For example, a 20 kHz horn is typically a one-half wavelength long resonant bar, whose molecules are constantly expanding and contracting 20,000 times per second. Consequently, the horn is continually under compression or tension. That’s why, for manufacturing ultrasonic horns –… Continue Reading What is the right material for making Ultrasonic Horns?

12 Advantages of Laser Plastic Welding

The use of various plastics in manufacturing has grown immensely in the last 15 or so years. Weight savings, optical requirements, and flexibility to name a few reasons push the envelope of legacy materials and often times leave plastics as the only logical choice to meet design requirements. Continue Reading 12 Advantages of Laser Plastic Welding

Reduce Flash, Get Stronger Welds, & Lower Residual Stress with Dynamic Weld Velocity

Assembling medical devices and other medical components are demanding.  Consistently producing good parts, in a validated process, while recording, storing, and analyzing data points is imperative.  Utilizing an ultrasonic welding process for assembly is widely accepted for medical devices and components because it is a fast, clean, easy to validate, repeatable assembling process. However, the… Continue Reading Reduce Flash, Get Stronger Welds, & Lower Residual Stress with Dynamic Weld Velocity

What is Melt-Match®?

A patented plastic welding process to repeatably detect melt transition from solid to molten state, then accurately controlling the melt flow of a thermoplastic material during the weld and transitioning from the molten to solid state. Melt-Match® is known in the plastic industry to improve all the phases of the welding process with servo-driven control… Continue Reading What is Melt-Match®?

Composite Horn – Ultrasonic Welding

Ideally, in ultrasonic welding the area where the horn contacts the part should be as close to the part joint as possible. However, at times, odd-shaped and sized parts prevent a half-wave horn from contacting the part where needed or developing sufficient amplitude to weld the application. In these situations, the answer is to use… Continue Reading Composite Horn – Ultrasonic Welding

Quick Tips and Tricks – Vibration Welding Process

Improve your Vibration Welding Process with these Quick Tricks and Tips: Get consistent weld quality with Weld by Distance mode, the only closed-loop welding method. Even if the weld force, amplitude, or the surface area of weld changes due to inconsistent part molding or design gap, the machine welds by the same distance. If the… Continue Reading Quick Tips and Tricks – Vibration Welding Process

Emerging Technologies: An Introduction to Particulate Free Welding

Eliminate particulate from your welding process and produce cleaner plastic parts with stronger welds and better aesthetics by using technologies designed to heat plastic parts and create a molecular bond between two pieces without generating any particles during the process. What do you get? Stronger welds by using contact less and targeted heat sources to… Continue Reading Emerging Technologies: An Introduction to Particulate Free Welding

Key Advantages of Vibration Welding

Clean, fast, well suited for joining large parts, and the ability to produce high-quality joints without fasteners or adhesives are few of the many benefits that make vibration welding a popular joining method for manufacturers producing plastic parts for automotive, appliances, home improvement, and several other industries. Flexibility to join a variety of plastic parts:… Continue Reading Key Advantages of Vibration Welding
