This is the first detailed description in English of radiation and polymeric material interaction and the influences of thermal and optical material properties. As such, it provides comprehensive information on material and process characteristics as well as applications regarding plastic laser welding. The first part of this practical book introduces the structure and physical properties of plastics, before discussing the interaction of material and radiation in the NIR and IR spectral range. This is followed by an overview of the physical foundations of laser radiation and laser sources used for plastic welding. The third part describes the main processes of laser welding thermoplastics, as well as possibilities of process control, design of joint geometry, material compatibilities and adaptation of absorption of plastics to NIR radiation. Finally, the author explains applications of laser welding plastics using several industrial case studies from the automotive industry, household goods, and medical devices. Tailored to the needs of everyone dealing with laser welding of plastics, especially engineers in packaging, component manufacturing, and the medical industry.

Thermoplastics and Thermoplastic Composites, Third Edition bridges the technology and business aspects of thermoplastics, providing a guide designed to help engineers working in real-world industrial settings. The author explores the criteria for material selection, provides a detailed guide to each family of thermoplastics, and explains the various processing options for each material type. More than 30 families of thermoplastics are described with information on their advantages and drawbacks, special grades, prices, transformation processes, applications, thermal behavior, technological properties (tenacity, friction, dimensional stability), durability (ageing, creep, fatigue), chemical and fire behavior, electrical properties, and joining possibilities. In this third edition, standards and costs have been updated for all materials, and more information on topics such as bioplastics, 3D printing and recycling have been added. In addition, an entirely new chapter on the concept of ‘Industry 4.0’ has been added, with guidance and suggestions on the incorporation of virtualization, connectivity, and automation into the plastics engineering process to reduce materials and processing failure. Includes detailed case studies that illustrate best practices across a wide range of applications and industry sectors Presents a new chapter on the ‘Industry 4.0’ concept Suggests software solutions to assist with design, decision-making and management, along with other forms of automation

The third edition of this comprehensive handbook emphasizes the relationship between the assembly methods, the materials, and the plastics manufacturing processes, thus enabling the reader to identify the best design/assembly method for a given application. The book has been completely updated and a new chapter on laser welding of plastics was added. All principal fastening and joining methods used to assemble plastic parts today are described with their particular advantages and disadvantages. Assembly method limitations for a given material and/or a given molding process are discussed in great detail. This is very much a "how-to" book, offering a wealth of hard-to-find detailed information. Contents: - Rapid Guidelines for Assembly of Plastics and Efficient Use of the Handbook - Designing for Efficient Assembly - Cost Reduction in Assembly - Design for Disassembly and Recycling - Assembly Method Selection by Material - Assembly Method Selection by Process - Adhesive and Solvent Joining - Fasteners and Inserts - Hinges - Hot Plates/Hot Die/Fusion and Hot Wire/Resistance Welding - Hot Gas Welding - Induction/Electromagnetic Welding - Insert and Multi-Part Welding - Press Fits/Force Fits/Interference Fits/Shrink Fits - Snap Fits - Spin Welding - Staking/Swaging/Peening/Cold Heading/Cold Forming - Threads: Tapped and Molded-In - Ultrasonic Welding - Vibration Welding - Laser Welding
