Applications Lab

An extension of your engineering team

 

Let us help you optimize your assembly for strength, cycle time, and appearance.

We evaluate your unique application and provide specific design recommendations for the most robust joining solution. We also conduct prototype welding and staking and can test parts via microstructure analysis, burst testing, leak testing, or tensile testing.

Design Evaluation

A strong assembly starts with a solid design.

Send us your part design and we’ll analyze it and provide specific recommendations for the most robust welding or staking joint.

Prototype Welding and Staking

Assume nothing, test everything.

Send sample parts or bring them in yourself we’ll run trials to determine optimal process settings and give you prototype parts that you can show your customers. Watch videos.

Microstructure Analysis

Let us take a closer look.

Let us look at your welded parts under a microscope in order to better understand how much material was softened, the weld quality, and what can be done to improve it.

Tensile Testing

Pull it apart and measure the strength.

We’ll pull your welded or staked assembly in our state-of-the-art tensile tester and measure the forces the joint can withstand before it breaks… if it breaks at all.

Burst Testing

The better the weld, the better the explosion.

We can pressurize your welded assembly in our burst chamber and measure the maximum pressure it contained before breaking apart.

Leak Testing

Everything leaks… how fast is the question.

We’ll fill your part with controlled air pressure and submerge it in our leak test tank to inspect for bubbles.

Improve your plastic products.

Whatever you're making with plastic, we can help you make it better and more efficiently.
Tell us about your project, and we'll show you how we can help.
