Laser plastic welding is a proven, powerful, and effective way to join plastics. It’s been used in industry for over 20 years and its ability to weld a wide variety of part sizes, with precision weld joints, minimal flash, and no particulate is unmatched by other welding processes.
Extol now has the capability of 3D printing components out of TPU material using HP’s Multi Jet Fusion process. The ability to print strong, homogeneous structures in TPU is a game-changer over other printing technologies. Extol’s Digital Development Center now can print parts out of both PA12 and TPU.
Extol has launched a new Digital Development Center (DDC) to provide parts and engineering support to help its customers develop high-value applications for additive manufacturing using HP Multi Jet Fusion technology.
Design engineers often ask us, “How strong will my staked joint be?” Usually, they’re designing a plastic assembly that needs to be staked, and they need to know how to design the part so that it will be strong enough for their application. They just want a number, like 450 N. If they know how strong one stake point will be, they can plan how many stake points they need and where to locate them. The good news is that we can estimate the answer…
We are doing it again… We are redesigning nanoSTAKE. What? Why?!
Well, this is what we do. Rather than wasting a lot of time trying to develop the perfect product and coming up short or missing the mark entirely, we work hard to get a viable product in your hands fast. We want you to see it, touch it, play with it, and tell us what should improve. That way we can make it better.
So, you’ve seen the new revolutionary nanoSTAKE technology and you are wondering how you can get it on your next plastic staking application. There are two great ways to do that. You can purchase a turnkey nanoSTAKE machine directly from Extol, or you can purchase nanoSTAKE through your preferred integrator. Either way, you get expert technology service from our knowledgeable team. Let’s talk more about what is included in a nanoSTAKE integration package and how they work.
