Branson’s infrared welding products are an excellent solution for reliable production of welded plastic parts. Our infrared welders achieve accurate, particle-free joints with a high mechanical load capacity. Especially suitable are moldings made of polyolefins (PP, PE), technical polymers or synthetic materials with an amorphous and semicrystalline structure, as well as high-temperature thermoplastics.
During the infrared welding process, both part halves are held rigidly in position near an infrared emitting platen to melt the joining surfaces. The platen is removed and the part halves driven together and allowed to resolidify under pressure.
Applications where Infrared welding has been used successfully include automotive sensors and control modules, filter assemblies, electronic enclosures, irrigation systems and medical products.
