Plastic Joining: Make or Break Factors

Plastic Joining: Make or Break Factors

“What technology should I use to join my application?” is one of the most common questions we get from customers looking to ensure the best performance and durability for their project. Unfortunately, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to that question. Several factors go into whether or not an application is compatible with different plastic welding technologies, and understanding them is key to making an informed decision.

Designing for Strength: What to Consider in Plastic Part Design

One of the more difficult questions I get asked by our customers is how to optimize assemblies for strength. This is an incredibly complex question but an important one when it comes to product development. Simulations like Finite Element Analysis are always a helpful tool, but FEA only provides some of the information, not all of it. Here are some questions to begin with during the development process

The Guide to Switch from Adhesive Bonding to Plastic Welding

The Guide to Switch from Adhesive Bonding to Plastic Welding

In manufacturing and product assembly, choosing the proper joining method is critical to ensure the end product’s strength, durability, and efficiency. Adhesive bonding is a popular method for assembling plastic parts. But as product demand increases, the need for faster and more cost-effective joining methods arises. Plastic welding is a popular alternative to adhesive bonding that produces more durable, reliable, and cost-effective assemblies.
