ROBOTIC HEAT STAKING CELL

More About Heat Staking

Heat staking is one of many ways to weld plastic parts together. This method uses simple studs to permanently join the elements with a tight and clean staking process. The principle is quite simple. The InfraStake tool heats the plastic part to soften it, and then, applies pressure to form a stud to retain both components together.

While some heat staking processes are hot and sticky, the Extol InfraStake technology makes it precise, clean, and safe. The IR lamp softens the plastic, and then a non-heated punch forms the stake according to the chosen staking types.  The infrared energy is focused radially on the plastic to heat it, so the module stays cool.

The infraStake Module

To improve Heat Staking applications, Extol innovated with an integral clamping system that creates the tightest, strongest stake joints. The IR lamp is the game-changer in this technology. It focuses the energy on the plastic and efficiently heats it up without inducing stress in the plastic. Nevertheless, the InfraStake module is easy to disassemble if any maintenance is needed.

The Extol Control Program

The InfraStake Processing Assistant software is improved to more precisely control the power level to match the rate of heating needed to avoid melting or burning the component. The smart processing algorithm makes setting up the process easy, intuitive and provides full quality assurance through increased process monitoring.

The DIY Robotics Cell

To support the pressure applied by the InfraStake tool, the Satellite -66 cell has been equipped with a FANUC Robot M- 20iB/35S, capable of supporting up to 35kg of pressure. This makes the whole process stable and consistent.

The Heat Staking Cell has been developed to provide reliability and flexibility in the staking process. The combination of the Extol tools with the DIY Robotics cells makes this industrial robotic kit unique.

InfraStake produces the strongest parts of any plastic staking technology. The technology heats up the plastic boss to a semi-molten state before staking. This allows the material to flow when it is formed and reduces any internal stresses that can occur with other processes.
