Branson Ultrasonics, a business of Emerson, will be demonstrating their Contoured Laser Technology (CLT) at The Assembly Show 2014, booth number 623. Branson personnel will demonstrate laser capabilities and the benefits of laser technology to plastic welding.
CLT allows designers to incorporate visible, virtually particulate-free weld lines into the product design for superior aesthetics, maximum product integrity, and enhanced production efficiency. Because the process is non-intrusive, the parts typically have excellent cosmetic properties – there is no relative motion between the parts, any excitation or vibration, or large heated platens, only the weld area is heated and melted. The end result is a particulate free and aesthetically clean weld joint. This is of particular importance in under-the-hood automotive and medical applications.
