The ultrasonic welding technology offered by Talbot Technologies enables the permanent assembly of two or more injection moulded parts through localised melting of the contact faces. Ultrasonic welding is much faster than conventional adhesive techniques; furthermore the low dwell time eliminates the requirements for multiple jigs and fixtures to hold parts in place whilst curing. Where possible, ultrasonic welding assembly will take place in line with the moulding cycle. Metal inserts can also be encapsulated into a plastic assembly through ultrasonic welding.
Talbot Technologies works with local suppliers to optimise the design of custom ultrasonic welding equipment including anvil and horn for each project, and can assist with recommendations for part design for ultrasonic welding including location of energy director features.
