HTE_Engineering_preview edit_tmb Among the products demonstrated by HTE Plastics Joining Systems at Southern Manufacturing 2016 were PulseStaking and Ultrasonic welding.

The in-house manufactured Pulsestaking process is a patented and versatile joining system used on products as diverse as contact lens manufacture to vehicle door finishers. The application of localised heat energy and absence of vibration render it suitable for products such as PCBs, brittle ceramics, thin metals, non- woven fibres and safety critical applications.

A programme of continuous development has resulted in innovations such as the Multi-tip Ct PulseStaker machine, with interchangeable cassette tooling, embedded thermocouples within the tips to provide SPC data logging, and the latest compact solid state voltage controllers.

The manufacturer of plastics assembly and special purpose automation equipment serving the automotive, electronics, domestic goods and medical sectors. It also offers alternative plastics joining processes including laser welding, fusion welding, induction heating and hot air cold stake technologies.
