Webinar - Plastic Welding

Topic:  Plastic Welding

When: Thursday, 14 July 2022 at 3-4 pm Malaysia local time

Plastics welding applications are used in various industries including fabrication of pipelines and welding of films and fabrics to assembly of mass produced domestic appliances and intricate welding of medical devices. Different methods can be used as well, ranging from ultrasonic or hot gas welding to cutting edge techniques which utilise laser or infrared energy.In this webinar an introduction to various plastic welding processes and their forthcomings will be presented. You will also learn about the importance of having trained and certified personnel working in this line. In the end, we will be demonstrating how TWI can help ensure your plastic welders and inspectors are equipped with the right skills and are capable of delivering impeccable service which can guarantee the quality of service for your clients. This webinar is beneficial to engineers, inspectors, technicians, quality assurance/ quality control personnel, supervisors, managers and anyone intrigued to grasp the importance of plastic joining and inspection cruciality.
