Wichita State University’s (WSU) National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR) announced the addition of a new technology to its Automated Technologies Laboratory for Aerospace Systems (ATLAS): a fully integrated thermoplastic welding system. The new thermoplastic welding (fusion bonding) system features in-process inspections and closed-loop controls for continuous welds using an industrial robot. An Ambrell induction heating system is part of the welding system. Learn more on WSU's website.
