Standard and hybrid vibration welding
Our wide range of vibration welders can satisfy any possible welding application, from simple and small components, such as medical filters, to large and complex assemblies, such as instrument panels.

The Vibration Welding Process
Two components are vibrated in shear against each other generating heat from friction. Vibration stops and pressure is maintained while the components bond to one another.
Hybrid vibration welding adds an infrared (IR) preheat to the beginning of the cycle to soften the rib and reduce the amount of particulate flash generated from the vibration cycle.
Vibration Welder Overview
Extol is the sole distributor of CEMAS vibration welding equipment in the United States and Canada. Our full lineup of vibration welders includes standard and high-level pneumatic models, servo-controlled models, and hybrid infrared (IR) clean vibration models. These impressive machines are highly customizable to meet any customer’s needs.
Vibration Welder Benefits
Even with many included standard features, we offer a full range of over 60 options to meet your specific needs.
Clean weld joint
Hybrid vibration welding softens the joint with IR preheat before the vibration process to minimize particulate flash.
No compromise for quality
All components are from world leading suppliers. Safety is our ultimate goal, as well as a prompt availability of spares worldwide.
The latest-generation electronic components and strategic placement of the hydraulic unit have resulted in a remarkably smaller control panel. It has also made tooling maintenance and setup operations easier.
Innovative and user-friendly UI
The graphical interface is the most intuitive on the market. Language selection, parameter adjustment, and user-configured I/O is as easy as the touch of a button.
To minimize strain on the backbone, the loading/unloading area is as close to the operator as possible. Our vibration welders have a shorter loading distance than any other machines in their class.
Hybrid welding and 4 reasons why you might need it
- To optimize weld aesthetics and reduce particulate flash
- To avoid stringing
- To reduce stress in the weld joint and improve strength
- To weld geometries that may not be feasible using vibration welding alone
Vibration Welder Models
There are several different vibration welder models available.
Real-time tuning adjusts the vibration frequency every 5 ms to ensure a perfect match between the resonating tool mass and the characteristics of the application.
Wide rear opening
Wide rear opening in the back of the machine for easier tool changes.
Quick vibration stop
Vibration can be stopped in less than 50 ms for a more homogeneous and strong joint.
