Webinar: Plastic Welding in Medical Products
Plastic Welding in Medical ProductsAn EWI Webinar January 27, 20211:00 pm EST Plastic joining in manufacturing is a challenging issue. Problems are often traced to improper process selection, joint design, or evaluation methods. By following a step-by-step approach, common development difficulties can be minimized or avoided. Please join EWI Senior Engineer Miranda Marcus on Wednesday, […]
A New Approach to Modeling Heat Generation in Plastic Welding
Modeling of heat generation during plastic welding can save time and money in product development. EWI has developed an approach for spin welding, which shows good correlation to experimental results. This work is described in FEA Modeling of Heat Development in Spin Welding, a paper by Miranda Marcus and Tom Feister. A similar approach can […]
Choose the Best Plastic Welding Method for Your Medtech Application
Joining plastics in medical applications is a difficult and delicate process. Many adhesives are neither FDA-approved nor biocompatible, and most plastics used for medtech products are already tough to bond. Plastic welding can offer greater consistency, hermeticity, and reliability. How can medtech manufacturers successfully switch from adhesive bonding to plastic welding? What requirements, processes, and design […]
THE EWI GUIDE TO PLASTIC WELDING FOR THE MEDTECH INDUSTRY
Successful plastic joining in manufacturing is a challenging issue. For applications in medtech, it becomes even more critical. Finding an FDA-approved adhesive that also bonds to low-surface-energy polymers commonly used in medical applications leaves manufacturers with few options. That is, until they look beyond adhesives. When it comes to production, welding offers greater consistency, stronger […]
Plastics joining is inherently complex. Ensuring strong, well-sealed joints without compromising component design is a constant challenge with new and evolving materials. EWI develops customized solutions for plastic and composite welding applications, including joining dissimilar materials. From plastic welding consulting to evaluation, we do more than just show you how to join your parts. We […]
Laser Plastic Welding
Laser plastic welding is a time-saving process that creates minimal flash and doesn’t mark parts.
Ultrasonic Plastic Welding
Using ultrasonics in plastics welding is fast, efficient, and effective. It requires no consumables and produces no fumes.
Article: Potential Pitfalls in Ultrasonic Plastic Welding
Congratulations to EWI associate Miranda Marcus on her recently published article in Assembly (magazine). “Potential Pitfalls in Ultrasonic Plastic Welding” explores the design considerations that must be taken into account to ensure optimum results in ultrasonic plastic welding. The full article is found in the March 2014 issue of Assembly. Author: Miranda Marcus, Applications Engineer, EWI. The article is freely available online […]
