Hot Plate Welding Process Advantages

The hot plate welding process provides the following advantages:

  • Ability to weld large parts and complex shapes and compound contours with little regard to part and joint geometry.
  • Can weld tall, thin, non-supported interior walls.
  • Highest joint strength of any weld process when welding PP,PE, TPE and EPDM materials.
  • Significantly smoother flash with less particulate than other assembly methods such as Vibration Welding.
  • Compatible with most thermoplastics.
  • High strength, hermetic welds are typical.
  • Multiple parts per cycle can be welded.
  • Easily automated.
  • Relatively low equipment cost.
  • Nature of the process is simple and highly forgiving of part tolerances when compared with other assembly processes.
