Why Choose Thermal Assembly, or Heat Staking, to Assemble Your Parts?

  • Thermal machines cost less.
  • Thermal tooling usually costs less and lasts longer.
  • Thermal units are extremely quiet.
  • Thermal welds are 20% stronger.
  • Inserting into filled material can be accomplished with less damage to the inserts with a thermal unit.
  • Multiple stakes and inserts at different levels can be accomplished simultaneously with a thermal unit.
  • Different sized inserts can be driven simultaneously with a thermal unit.
  • Larger inserts or more inserts can be driven with one cycle
    of a thermal press than with an ultrasonic press.
  • Thermal units work well on glass and mineral-filled resins.
  • There is less damage or marking on the face of a molded part with a thermal unit.
  • There is less mechanical force and therefore less stress on the part with a thermal unit.
  • The thermal staking process is less likely to split the boss or damage other components.
  • Thermal Assembly is very quiet compared to ultrasonic assembly.
  • Thermal machine have very low maintenance cost.
  • Reported to have 10% to 20% stronger holding retention for stakes and inserts.
  • There are much fewer material limitations with the thermal assembly process
