Hot Plate welding is widely used for the most challenging materials and large part assembly with high strength and hermetic requirements. During the hot plate welding, both part halves are held rigidly in position against/near a thermally heated platen to melt the joining surfaces. The materials are then quickly separated from the heated source and driven together and allowed to re-solidify under pressure.
Forward has manufactured hot plate systems since 1965. Our experience has resulted in the design of equipment based on ultra-rigid construction and detailed melt control to ensure precise repeatability of part quality, year after year of production.
Vertical or horizontal platen configurations are available. From manually loaded and unloaded machines to semi and fully automated in-line systems, Forward offers the widest array of standard products designed to accommodate a most product sizes.
