Welding of plastics

Various techniques can be used to weld two plastic parts. The technique selected depends on the type of plastic, the geometry of the parts to be assembled, the welding cycle time required and the cost of the tools to be used. All the welding techniques are based on localised heating of the materials to be welded. Depending on the technique, the parts are warmed either by an external heat source or by heat generated by the process itself. Only thermoplastics can be welded using these techniques.
