- Failsafe Fusing, as printed in applianceDESIGN magazine, August 2007
This article reviews the process and benefits of Electromagnetic Welding for appliance and other applications.
- Flushmate Vessel Welding Process Improvement - SPI Plastic Part Innovation Conference May 2007
This paper presents data and results of converting a high pressure water vessel from vibration welding process to Emabond. Material is a glass filled PP.
- Weldability Evaluation on Effects of Filler Content of Polypropylene Copolymers for Electromagnetic Welding Process, SPE-ANTEC May 2007
This paper presents a comparative study between the vibration welding process and the electromagnetic welding process performed to evaluate effects of filler (talc and glass) content on weldability of PP copolymers
- Performance of Susceptor Material in High Frequency Magnetic Fields, 2006 ANTEC SPE Conference, May, 2006
Magnetic implant welding uses susceptors that couples, due to ferromagnetic hysterisis, with high frequency electromagnetic radiation to generate controllable heat in the plastic. The relationship of coupling distance, power level, and frequency to the heating response of susceptors was studied.
- Implant Induction Welding of Nylon 6/6, ANTEC SPE Conference, May, 2005
In this study three factor two level full factorial design of experiments was performed to evaluate two different types of Nylon 6/6, denoted as A and B, in a lap shear joint geometry.
- Induction Welding Takes New Aim for Reinforced Thermoplastics in High Strength and Load Bearing Applications, ANTEC SPE Conference, May, 2004
In this study, 33 wt. % fiberglass reinforced Nylon 6 was used in a chain-optimization study to conduct a critical comparison of two alternatives for thermoplastic welding. Results demonstrate interactions between material composition, joint design, and welding process conditions.
- Recent Advances and Challenges in Induction Welding of Reinforced Nylon in Automotive Applications, SAE Conference, March, 2004
In the current paper we will try to enhance the understanding of the automotive engineering community regarding the usefulness, unique capability, and applicability of the recently improved Emabond welding technology in the design for heavy-duty and load-bearing automotive plastic parts where requirements for safety and durability are the first priority and fiberglass reinforced Nylon based plastics and widely used.
- Advances in the Emabond Induction Welding Process for High Performance Assembly of Demanding Thermoplastics, Assembly Tech Expo, 2003
This presentation outlines the design and manufacturing considerations implemented to achieve reliable, robust performance and details the advances and use of this process in several representative high-performance assembly applications.
- In-Sink-Erator Tank, Appliance Manufacturer, August, 2000
The new design gave us everything we wanted and some, but there were problems.
Specially, the new design required two thermoplastic components to be sealed along a 40-in length.
