GCG Assemblies' Ultrasonic Welding is the process by which an acoustic tool is used to transfer vibration energy through parts to the surfaces that are desired to be joined. This technique is used with plastics and some metals. It is especially useful when dissimilar materials need to be joined.
In plastics, the ultrasonic energy melts the point of contact between the parts and creates a weld-joint. Ultrasonic energy can be used to weld metals, too, but these welds are small and thin and not reliable in heavy, high power applications.
Some of the advantages of this technology are improvements in end-product quality, efficiency, and reliability, since, in the right instances, this technique can replace the need for glues, screws, or snaps in the design.
