What is Heat Staking?
Thermoplastic staking, also known as heat staking, is used to melt and deform the plastic material using heat and force at a set process time. A plastic stud protruding from one component fits into a hole in the second component.
Heat staking machines are ideal for inserting metal components into plastic assemblies, threaded metal ferrules are bonded to plastic parts. Brass or steel ferrule inserts are first moved into position above corresponding holes in the plastic material. After the inserts are heated to the correct temperature, they are quickly pressed into the plastic. The plastic immediately surrounding the inserts melts and flows into the knurl areas. The plastic then cools and securely holds the metal gaskets in position.
