Spin Welding Capabilities Allow for Specialized Joining of Plastics to Metals

Veridiam Medical (MD&M West Booth 2962) introduces new spin welding capabilities to its array of specialized manufacturing operations. The new Spin Welder allows plastic components to be quickly, cleanly, and permanently attached to metal assemblies. The Spin Welder joins two parts together with heat generated from rotational friction. The metal object is held stationary, while the plastic part is rotated at a high speed and pressure is applied. The resulting friction produces enough heat to melt the parts together in a highly-localized area. The addition of this machine allows Veridiam Medical to manage complex projects that require both metal manufacturing and plastic attachment, saving time and money for its customers.
