Spin Welding is the preferred technique for thermoplastic parts with a circular axis joint which have high bond strength/hermeticity requirements. During spin welding, one part is held stationary in a holding fixture while second part is rotated against it under pressure at speeds up to 16,000 rpm. This resulting friction causes the joining surfaces to melt and fuse together, producing strong hermetic welds.
Forward has been designing and building Spin welding systems since 1993. We offer a multitude of models ranging in maximum speeds from 3,500 to 16,000 RPM and are available in both servo-electric (orientation based) and pneumatic (inertial based) models for a wide array of applications.
