Comparing plastic staking technologies

Jan 31, 2017 | InfraStake | 0 comments

We wrote a white paper.

We often get asked how different staking technologies stack up against each other, so we decided to test it, and write a paper about it. We can’t share the whole paper with you just yet; it hasn’t been published yet. However, here is the abstract to pique your interest.

Abstract

Several thermoplastic staking technologies are available in the manufacturing industry. With many options to choose from, it is necessary to understand which processes are capable of achieving desired results. Hot air, ultrasonic, and InfraStake were evaluated on cycle time, joint strength, strength repeatability, equipment cost, and operation cost to discern process capability. Each process has strengths and weaknesses, and recognizing each helps to determine which technology will produce the desired result in a specific application.

ANTEC 2017

We will be presenting this paper at ANTEC 2017 in Anaheim, CA this May. We look forward to sharing more with you soon!
