Weld Quality and Flaws in Welded Moulded Plastic Components

Webinars 10 December 2020

TWI’s leading failure investigation expert, chartered polymer and adhesive engineer, Dr Farshad Salamat-Zadeh will host a webinar about the ‘Assessment of Weld Quality and Flaws in Welded Moulded Plastic Components’.

The majority of products containing some form of joint use techniques such as welding, adhesive bonding and mechanical fastening. The choice of joining process is determined by the material to be joined, the strength of the joint that is needed, the level of seal required, process cost and speed, and the production quantity.

The webinar will provide an overview of different plastic welding and joining processes, along with two failure investigation case studies and a discussion of suitable techniques for assessing weld quality.

Through this webinar, a range of industry sectors will be targeted, since plastic welding and joining is used for everything from automotive to household goods and medical devices.
