Using Infrared Light to Revolutionize the Staking Process

A free white paper by Extol, Inc.

Take a look inside the four basic steps of the staking process and discover how Infrastake harnesses infrared light to join plastics together in an innovative way. The process of staking plastic parts has been dominated by three main methods; hot air, thermal, and ultrasonic. Each method has intrinsic strengths and weaknesses with regard to the strength of the joints formed and the minimization of cycle time. The revolutionary InfraStake process was discovered out of a desire for a more effective process for bonding plastic parts. By using infrared energy to heat the plastic and carefully controlling the environment around the plastic boss, the InfraStake process allows for the creation of stronger, more dimensionally stable plastic parts.
