WELDING

 

Ultrasonic Plastic Welding

Ultrasonic plastic welding uses high-frequency mechanical vibrations transmitted through thermoplastic parts to create frictional heat at a joint interface. The frictional heat generated causes the part interfaces to melt and fuse while pressure is applied. This technique is fast, efficient, non-contaminating and requires no consumables.

AMS will help you obtain repeatable ultrasonically welded results by working closely with you to create the best joint design for your application. We will also assist you in analyzing the welding characteristics of thermoplastics as well as an understanding of how polymer structure and other factors affect the weldability of various polymers (including polymer structure, melt temperature, melt index, modulus of elasticity, and chemical makeup). Our engineering team will ensure that you get the results you are looking for. 

Vibration Welding

Vibration welding creates frictional heat at the joint interface of two or more plastic parts by rapidly moving one part against the other that is held stationary in a lower tool. The frictional heat generated causes the interfaces to melt and fuse together while pressure is applied. Vibration welding is a reliable friction welding technique capable of producing strong, pressure tight joints in the thermoplastic parts.

One of the key advantages of vibration welding lies in its application to large (up to 60"/1524 mm long or 24"/610 mm wide) irregularly-shaped parts. The process also works with multi-plane and curved surfaces. The technique offers the capability of welding more than one part at a time and also readily lends itself to automation.

Spin Welding

Spin welding is a process that joins circular thermoplastic parts by bringing the part interfaces together, under pressure, with a circular, spinning motion. One part is held stationary in a fixture, while the other is rotated against it under pressure. The frictional heat that is generated causes the part interfaces to melt and fuse together, creating a strong, hermetic seal. Our engineering staff will work closely with you to help you with your spin welding application. This includes determining the speed of part rotation and appropriate pressure of the driver as the parts are spun together.
