Edition 2003, 423 pages
All commercially available welding processes are reviewed and compared to help the
reader select the best suited process for his/her application and to understand
each process' limitations and benefits. The focus on practical aspects such as weldability,
optimizing part design, troubleshooting, and testing makes this book an indispensable
tool for everyone involved in welding of plastics. At the same time, it also conveys
the basic theoretical principles of plastics welding such as squeeze flow, molecular
diffusion, and heat transfer mechanisms.
