Success Stories

Solved Part Design Challenge
Ultrasonic Spot Welding
The current Ford Mustang tail lamps utilize ultrasonics to spot weld the ABS chrome strips to the tail lamp lens. While a very challenging welding application, it is one of the many possibilities for Dukane's welders and equipment. Simple chrome strips can be welded with no issue and save big dollars compared to adhesive solutions.

Hermetic Seal
Vibration Welding
Intake manifolds are two to five injection-molded plastic pieces that are typically joined through vibration welding. Hermetic seals with high burst strength are required for this automotive application.

Glove Boxes
Vibration/Hotplate Welding
Glove Boxes are more than a place to put the car manual. It is a safety device that absorbs the impact of the knees during a head on collision. They are usually joined through vibration welding but some auto professionals prefer to use hot plate welders. In most cases, latch mechanisms are in place during welding.

Instrument Clusters
Vibration Welding
Instrument clusters have long been vibration welded. The clear acrylic is welded to the ABS mask. No marking occurs to this soft lens. Today there are lots of new trim rings (typically chrome plated) that are ultrasonically staked to the IP components.

Tamper Evident Process
Charge cord assemblies used in electronic vehicles present a big opportunity for ultrasonics and vibration welders in their assembly. The tamper evident process of either of these applications also provides structures that a vehicle can drive over without destroying the assembly
