Material And Ultrasonic Weldability
Riveting and welding are two different ways to assemble industrial components.
Riveting consists in merging a mass of materials and shaping it like the head of a rivet with the purpose of combining two different elements such as plastics and metal.
The benefit of this method is that the sonotrode can be traced back once the materials are cold, keeping the pieces rigidly anchored.
Ultrasonic welding with energy directors on the other hand, it is necessary to consider many factors: the type of raw materials, shape, injection or thermoforming deformations during molding, the soldering variety (mechanical, liquid-tight, pressure-sensitive), sonotrode distance into the surface area, etc.
