Join two different kinds of materials
The Two-Phase Thermoforming process connects two different kinds of materials given that one of these materials is thermoplastic. There are no problems in riveting/staking parts with critical surfaces (painting, foil, graining…)
Particle free welding process
In this process, the plastic pin is plasticized and gets softer with a contactless heating source which eliminates friction and particles.
No pollution on the heating element
No material adhesions on the tools even for materials with low viscosity because of the contactless plasticization and “cold” forming punch.
Lower mechanical stress on the components
Since force is applied in the 2nd phase when the plastic pin is already plasticized by a non-contact heating element, it reduces mechanical stress.
Reduce cycle time with Rotary Table
Heating, turning, and riveting can be separated in three steps using a rotary/turntable to reduce cycle time. It also has the ability to simultaneously riveting (more than 30 points are proven).
