The Heat Staking welding process consists of a metal punch with a resistance installed inside it, with controlled temperature. The punch moves and leans on the pin to be riveted causing the melting of the pin and the conforming according to the surface of the punch.
It's a process widely used to work thermoplastic with metal.
This equipment’s are designed specifically for each application, depending on the customer’s product specific technical needs.
Hot Air Welding technology can be summed up by the application of a hot air jet directed to a plastic pin to be riveted.
The hot air is applied for a certain amount of time until the pin softens and then is pressed by a cold metal, punch for its conformation. In addition to time control, the flow of air for each point is also controlled.
The hot air process doesn’t generate smoke, and it's indicated mainly in the riveting process of metallic foils in plastic parts.
