The Heat Stake Advantage
Over the last 10 years, advancements in solid modeling technologies and subsequent changes in the injection molding industry have created the need for more complex and diverse assembly solutions. Due to the more complex and stringent requirements for strength, tightness, and aesthetic characteristics in the electronic, medical, and automotive component assembly, the need for a non-violent or degrading method for plastic assembly has increased. There are a multitude of technologies and companies that produce machines for plastic assembly. A few of these plastic assembly technologies include infrared, laser, hot air/cold upset, and thermal impulse, as well as the welding technologies..
