We can also help you assess whether a particular plastic is suitable for your laser welding process. In this context, we are able to choose from multiple options that can facilitate analysis depending on the nature of the plastic and application concerned:
- Spectral analysis
- Thin sections
- Tensile tests
In plastic laser welding, the optical properties of the plastics play a crucial role in determining the welding quality. The naked eye cannot always detect the transparency of the component that you intend to expose to the radiation. However, a spectral analysis will reveal whether the optical properties of the plastics concerned are appropriate.
Depending on the type of plastic and its filler materials, it may also be worth analyzing the dispersion in the material. This involves measuring how the intensity of the radiation is distributed after it penetrates the sample component.
