This welding method has a vast range of industrial applications in serial production. The technique is ideal for a wide range of thermoplastic materials that are often considered difficult to weld together, such as PP, filled and unfilled polyamides, and can also be used to join materials that are similar, but not identical, such as ABS and PMMA.
The main advantage is the time saved compared to using adhesives or hot welding systems.
Welding is carried out by friction, so no heat is brought in from the outside; the heat required is produced by the dispersion of the energy generated by the friction itself.
The heat produced by rubbing together the appropriately positioned edges of the two pieces which, at the cooling stage, under pressure, remain welded.
