Joining of Plastic Parts by Welding and Snap Fits – WEBINAR

October 24, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT

The process of joining components to create an assembly is widely employed in the plastics industry. There are numerous techniques available for connecting plastic parts to other parts made of plastic, metal, or others. The specific method chosen determines the strength and reliability of the assembly, as well as its potential for intentional or unintentional disassembly. Several factors, including the material of the parts, environmental conditions, manufacturing processes, costs, and desired properties, influence the selection of the joining process.

In this webinar, we will explore the most commonly used joining methods in the industry, welding and snap-fits. We will discuss the advantages and challenges associated with each method and explore techniques for analyzing joint quality. Throughout the presentation, we will present case studies to illustrate the concepts discussed.

After attending this presentation, you will gain a clearer comprehension of the following:

  • Factors to consider when selecting a joining technique for your specific application.
  • The benefits and challenges associated with plastic welding and snap fits.
  • The influence of design and plastic type on the overall strength and durability of the joint.
