Ultrasonic or Hot-Plate Welding? The Battle for Superiority in Medical Device Assembly

Welcome to our exploration into plastic welding for life science applications. As we embark on this journey, imagine yourself as a master chef, adeptly balancing the strengths and potential weaknesses – such as leak rate – of ultrasonic welding (USW) and hot-plate welding (HPW), much like harmonizing flavors in a gourmet dish. Each method brings unique strengths and challenges to the table, contributing to the final product’s quality. So, let’s dive into this adventure where strength and leak rate take center stage in the intricate world of plastic welding for life science applications.
