Vibration Welders

Branson, the pioneer in vibration welding with over 35 year of real-life production experience, continually introduces enhanced version of its popular welding system.

Vibration welding is a proven friction welding technique capable of producing strong, pressure tight joints in the thermoplastic parts.

The major advantage of vibration lies in its application to large (up to 60"/1524 mm long or 24"/610 mm wide) irregularly-shaped parts. Even cross ribs which create separate compartments can be sealed. The process also works with multi-plane and curved surfaces. The technique offers the capability of welding more than one part at a time; it also readily lends itself to automation.

Linear vibration welding uses transverse, reciprocating motion; the vibration occurs in only one axis. The vibration motion occurs equally in both the x and y axes and all axes in between.
Orbital vibration welding uses constant velocity motion, a non-rotating offset circular motion in all directions.
The GVX Series welders offer a variety of performance benefits, including improved flexibility and control through closed-loop feedback with differentiated control levels, as well as reduced cycle times.
