Bonding and Sealing of Surgical Appliances

Bonding and Sealing of Surgical Appliances

Objectives 

The customer manufacturing silicone-handled instruments for critical surgical applications is looking to heat up stainless steel shanks to then be bonded with plastic handles. This helps the customer make high-quality surgical products and fast, reliable processes.

Once the shank has reached temperature the heated end is pushed into the plastic handle and the plastic melts and bonds to the shank. The press fit process will be done manually. 

Process 

The maximum temperature for this process is 500 degrees Celsius and the productivity rate is 5-100 parts per day. The parts are introduced to the coil by manually placing them in the fixture and pressing fit manually. 

Equipment 

The power supply is the SH-2 and the heat station is the HS-4W.
