Plastic welding for the automotive, medical technology and consumer industries

You are here: Processes > Areas of Application > Areas of Application
Laser plastic welding demonstrates its special strengths when strict specifications are defined for the welding process, process reliability and the economic aspects of the method.

In medical technology, laser plastic welding displays all of its outstanding strengths: zero-error quality, absolute hygiene, and the highest levels of precision for parts which are becoming increasingly miniaturized. The process monitoring systems integratable within the welding process guarantee end-to-end quality assurance of all the parts.

In the automotive industry, laser plastic welding has already established itself as an economical alternative. In the case of electronic sensor housings the sensitive electronic components can be safely sealed-in using laser welding. Laser plastic welding also makes convincing use of its processing advantages when welding complex three-dimensional components such as car tail lights.

Laser plastic welding has also established itself in other areas of application: As a relatively young method, it boasts high innovation potential. The drop in prices for low-maintenance laser beam sources also makes the process attractive for consumables and other inexpensive consumer goods. Components of increasingly large size are now also welded using lasers: television housings, washing machines and similar large components.
