Plastics joining is inherently complex.
It’s a constant challenge to determine how to ensure strong, well-sealed joints without compromising your component design.
EWI develops customized solutions for plastic and composite welding applications, including joining dissimilar materials. We do more than just showing you how to attach your parts; we optimize your design, test and validate your new process, then guide your team through implementation, training, and production launch.
Ideally, we start working with our clients at square one: part design and process development. If we are brought in at a later stage, we are often asked to analyze a failure or to redesign the tooling and process setup to fit our client’s specific component. Our more unique specialties include:
- Custom-designed sonotrodes, or horns, for ultrasonic plastic welding
- Analysis of plastic welds with our characterization tools
- Vibrational and modal troubleshooting analysis
- Joint design and material feasibility studies
