Technical processing of plastic components
Bending, welding and bonding
Welding is accomplished with a hot air heat gun and added material (filler wire). Extruder welding is also carried out with a filler metal which is melted.
Welding can be made in these materials:
- PEHD500 (extruder welding)
Bonding is made primarily where there is a desire not to make a mechanical action on the item’s appearance.
Bonding can be made in these materials:
OTV has expertise in both cold and hot bending in high quality. The table below shows which materials can be bent and in which thickness.
Processing – Bending/bonding/welding
|Hot bending max. sheet length (mm)||1500||1500||1500||1500||1500||1500|
|Hot bending max. sheet thickness (mm)||10||10||10||10||10||10|
|Cold bending max. sheet length (mm)||n/a||3000||n/a||3000||n/a||n/a|
|Cold bending max. sheet thickness (mm)||n/a||5||n/a||6||n/a||n/a|
|Bonding (type of glue)||Acrifix||Ruderer||Tangit||Ruderer||n/a||n/a|
|Welding (*extruder)||n/a||Hot air||Hot air*||Hot air||Hot air*||Hot air*|
