Plastic Assembly Systems from AMS
AMS can reliably join your plastic parts to meet even the toughest requirements. Our capabilities include:
Ultrasonic plastic welding uses high-frequency mechanical vibrations transmitted through thermoplastic parts to create frictional heat at a joint interface. The frictional heat generated causes the part interfaces to melt and fuse while pressure is applied. This technique is fast, efficient, non-contaminating and requires no consumables.
AMS will help you obtain repeatable ultrasonically welded results by working closely with you to create the best joint design for your application. We will also assist you in analyzing the welding characteristics of thermoplastics as well as an understanding of how polymer structure and other factors affect the weldability of various polymers (including polymer structure, melt temperature, melt index, modulus of elasticity, and chemical makeup). Our engineering team will ensure that you get the results you are looking for.
Thermal plastic staking
Ultrasonic plastic staking
As with ultrasonic plastic welding and spin welding, ultrasonic spot welding joins together similar thermoplastic components without damaging their structure. The welding tip vibrates ultrasonically when passing through the materials, producing frictional heat as well as a void through which the melted plastic can flow between the parts, thereby fusing them together.
Ultrasonic welding can generally produce a strong, durable weld in less than one second. Molded joints, screws, and rivets aren’t needed and this method is compatible with almost any thermoplastic
Increase Productivity and Efficiency with Plastic Assembly Operations
To get ahead, you need to increase throughput, minimize handling and improve quality. Automating your plastics assembly gives you the competitive edge. And while we offer standard ultrasonic welding machines, spot welding, staking, textile welding and more, our engineers are experts at customizing systems to our customers’ exact application needs.
AMS designed the Press Joining PJ-401 for ultrasonic plastic welding applications requiring precise welding temperatures and pressures, exact locations, high levels of error-proofing, and repeatability to ensure consistent welding.
We will work closely with you from product concept stages through production. Along the way, we’ll refine your process to achieve the best plastic assembly results. Our services include concept sketches, prototypes, testing, formal CAD drawings, production tooling and complete systems installation and startup support. Count on us to help you select the best plastic materials and develop the optimum welding joint design, too. We test every solution in our on-site application development lab.
Trust AMS and our proven 17-step process to deliver your project on time and within budget. You won’t be kept in the dark: As a true partner, we update you every step of the way with frequent and consistent communication. Make AMS your first-choice plastic assembly partner today.
