Laser Plastic Weld Tooling Enhances Process Quality
Extol’s new LaserLock said to repeatedly locate and hold plastic parts inside the laser welding machine.
A patent-pending laser plastic weld tooling that is said to ensure plastic parts align properly every time has been introduced by Extol, Zeeland, Mich. The new LaserLock tooling is said to help users ensure consistent strong welds.
LaserLock tooling is reported to repeatably locate and holds plastic parts inside the laser welding machine, which is crucial for success. According to Extol, this solution makes process setup easy and allows for more flexibility in your part design. With LaserLock plastic weld tooling, you can reportedly expect to get:
▪ Strong, consistent parts
▪ Repeatable part loading
▪ Part design flexibility
▪ Easy process setup
Understand and address the likely origins of welding problems to keep production on track.
To make the proper choice, each application must be considered on its own. Each has its own particular characteristics and requirements.
Dye sublimation, a dye-transfer process that got its start in the 1960s for use in textiles, has advanced in recent years to provide wear-resistant, full-color surface decoration of flat objects like mouse pads and tiles.
