Pulse Fusion is a unique and patented Japanese process now available within Europe from H.T.E. Resistance wires are placed between two halves of the plastic parts to be joined and then electrically heated. Localized pressure is applied and the parts melt in the area in contact with the wires. Applications include vehicle under-bonnet fluid expansion tanks, domestic heating controllers and battery cases where tamper evident seals, strong gas and watertight joints are required. Fine cosmetic surfaces are also maintained using Fusion Welding.

Come on by Stand A10 and we will be delighted to discuss our Plastic Joining Solutions.
