PARAMETRIC INFLUENCE OF ULTRASONIC PLASTIC WELDING ON WELD STRENGTH OF ACRYLIC, POLYCARBONATE AND POLYPROPYLENE MATERIALS (141579)

DOI :

Abstract : Ultrasonic welding is the most widely used and fastest known welding technique for joining thermoplastic materials. The process uses ultrasonic energy at high frequencies (20-40 kHz) to produce low amplitude (1-25 m) mechanical vibrations. These vibrations generate heat at the joint interface of the parts being welded, resulting in melting of the thermoplastic materials and after cooling weld formation takes place. The fundamental aim of this study is to investigate the effect of welding parameters such as amplitude, pressure, weld time and thickness ratio on weld strength of thermoplastic materials. The thermoplastic materials such as Acrylic, Polycarbonate and Polypropylene are selected for this study. An experimental model based on full factorial design is selected and experiments are performed as per Design of Experiment. The significantly affecting process parameters are identified and ranked using analysis of variance (ANOVA) method. The outcome of this study is to identify the weld strength obtained in different thermoplastic materials for a selected range of process parameters.
