Vibration Welding and Friction
While both vibration and ultrasonic welding uses vibrations, they are two different methods catered to part needs. Instead of using ultrasonic energy, vibration welding utilizes fiction. At high pressures, the machine moves the parts against each other. Heating up to high temperatures, the parts begin to melt and weld together. Additionally, vibration welders operate at much lower frequencies, higher amplitudes, and greater clamping force than ultrasonic welders.
At Craig Machinery, we have experience creating vibration weld tooling from simple pockets to multi-clamp systems, part defect sensors and vacuum part holding. If you are curious about our capabilities, view our in-house capabilities, view videos of past projects, or contact us.
Our Clients’ Parts and Vibration Welding
At Craig Machinery, we ensure our client’s final products prepared to hit the market. If requested, our professional team assists in early stages of part design to the final product. The process includes evaluating joint design, part wall thickness and material types. From there, we design a machine and fixture to ensure quality, repeatable welds. Successful vibration welding projects are crucial for both parties.
Sometimes, our clients are not ready to invest in a system to mass vibration weld their parts. In addition to creating systems, we possess vibration welders to weld those parts. Learn more about our prototype welding or contract welding services.
Craig Machinery offers the service of modifying or fixing vibration welders. Often times, clients have a welding in their possession that they want to start utilizing. By hiring us, we can add tooling, fix the inside mechanisms, adjust machines to different parts and more to meet their needs. Contact us to discover if we can mortify your welder.
