PolyMerge GmbH has been awarded the "Innovative through Research" seal of quality. The seal, awarded by the Stifterverband für die deutsche Wissenschaft e.V. (Donors' Association for the Promotion of Sciences and Humanities in Germany), is given to research-based companies that distinguish themselves through special achievements in research and development (R&D). The seal was awarded for the first time in 2014 and is valid for two years.
As part of an R&D Project, PolyMerge GmbH, TIWARI Scientific Instruments GmbH and Fraunhofer IKTS (the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems Dresden) have developed a process for additive manufacturing (AM) of multimaterial ceramic components
PolyMerge GmbH introduces the new patented infrared welding using 3D printed ceramic emitters. Ideally suited for welding tail lights and functional components made of polyamide...
PolyMerge optimises circular friction welding of small and non-symmetrical components, e.g. for electronics, sensors and actuators
Infrared welding is a well established welding technique for polymers. The method offers clearly multiple advantages over a contact based heat mechanism. Both, systems based on metal foil and based on glass emitters suffers from systematic limitations. Surprisingly the technologies has not changed for a decade, this was reason enough for us, to develop a modern alternative:
Our work leads into a setup based on ceramic emitters produced in an 3D printing process. The result is: flexible in design, high emitter performance, superb lifetime…
