STAKING

 

Thermal Staking

The thermal staking process (also called heat staking, heading, or riveting) uses the controlled flow of the molten plastic to retain another component, thereby joining plastic to plastic. This process can be used as an alternative to ultrasonic welding when the two parts to be assembled consist of dissimilar materials which cannot be welded or when simple mechanical retention of one part relative to another is adequate (as opposed to molecular bonding). AMS’ engineering assistance includes guidelines for designing a part for thermal staking as well as the geometry of the protruding plastic stud which is important based on the material trapped, strength required, and cycle time constraints.
