Vibration Welding



 

In vibration welding the welding surfaces are heated up and melted by a friction movement. Like in all other welding procedures they are welded under pressure.

Typical applications

In the automotive industry: e.g. spoilers, instrument panels, glove boxes, deposit shelves, motor covers, servo-oil, Reservoirs, filters, trim strips and shock absorbers, suction pipes. 

Principal advantages of the vibration welding technology:

o    Welding of a continuous seam also in large parts, like the welding of air channels in I-panels

o    Principle of local heating up due to friction only at the welding surfaces

o    Low energy consumption

o    Very short welding times in a range of seconds

o    Extensive material range for almost all thermoplastics
