Plastic Part Rotational Molding – Spin Welding Services
Jer-Den Plastics offers a variety of secondary manufacturing services, including spin welding, to provide the quality rotational molded parts and finished products you need – rapidly and affordably. As a “value-added” supplier, we can lower your costs – and reduce your time to market – with our efficient in-house spin welding services.
Spin welding is a method of joining thermoplastic parts using heat generated by high RPM rotational friction at the joint line. The spin welding machine rotates one part against a second stationary part – applying pressure axially. The heat resulting from the friction melts the parts together.
When properly done the two parts almost become one part – and are often almost as durable as a single part. Additionally, the spin welded joint becomes “hermetically sealed” and is completely “leak free”. The spin welding process thereby eliminates the need for welded seams or rubber gaskets that will eventually degrade and leak.
In addition to providing high quality durable joints, spin welding can lower your assembly costs. Spin welding utilizes only heat – no additional chemicals or adhesives – to join parts. And, because Jer-Den plastics offers spin welding in-house, it can also decrease your product production times.
