Optimization of plastic products: The location and quantity of the gate, the thickness of the plastic part and the design of the runner system will directly affect the quality of the product.
And no matter how conscientious the metal machinist is, it is nearly impossible to clean every bit of oil from a machine before using it to make a plastic part. Because of this, equipment used to manufacture metal parts, even if used for metal only, can occasionally contaminate plastic parts with those oil-based cutting fluids.
Success comes from the skill of their use, combined with the cooperative efforts of an experienced team that must physically bring a plastic part through to production.
Ultrasonic welding is achieved when vibrational energy is introduced, via a welding head, at the interface of the plastic part and the nonwoven filter media.
