Impulse Staking is a process that creates heat on-demand for staking plastic bosses of various sizes. The process is perfect for sensitive electronics and parts where excessive heat and pressure may cause damage to visible areas. At the end of each cycle, tips are cooled to room temperature within seconds preventing accidental operator injury and eliminating the need for constant heating – see our video for an example.
TX120 Servo Vibration Welder
ToolTex's Servo Vibration Welder features ultra-heavy construction. The servo-driven ball-screw actuated lift table is both rugged and precise with a capacity of 5000 lb of force and +/- 0.001” accuracy. Its welded steel frame construction is tuned for maximum isolation of vibration. This welder is ideal for welding engineered resins including elastomers and high fill content materials requiring hermetic seal.
Inductive insertion is a process by which threaded metal inserts are rapidly heated through the use of induction and then inserted into plastic parts for a strong and lasting bond. The process can be tailored to a range of parts and can be used with three, four, and six-axis robots for parts with multiple insert locations. Parts with three or fewer inserts on the same plane may benefit from servo or pneumatic actuation.
