Is it for me?

Engineers, technicians and machine operators wishing to gain an understanding and appreciation of the different welding and joining processes, and their suitability for different polymer types, with a view to enabling individuals to design components incorporating joints.

What will I learn?

  • Advantages and limitations, materials, welding parameters, equipment, joint design, applications for the following welding processes: hot plate, spin, infrared, ultrasonic, vibration and laser
  • Hot air and ultrasonic staking, an introduction to plastics, mechanical and non-destructive testing, practical demonstrations of ultrasonic, hot plate, vibration and laser welding and hot air staking

What will I leave with?

  • To equip attendees with the necessary welding knowledge for designing plastic moulded parts for complex, high integrity applications
  • To provide the information required to optimise a welding process and trouble-shoot a production problem
  • To explore the range of processes available for joining moulded parts
