    To increase the capacity in the tool department, we have invested in a new HAAS VF2 milling machine.

  • Makeni has invested in a vibration welding machine from Green & Co

    2015-01-22

    The M-624 Hi model is a powerful machine that can weld an area up to 450 cm² and it has the most up-to-date control system including data management and Teleservice.

    Vibration welding is a bonding technology where the parts are vibrated to create friction between them. Roughly, in the same way as when you rub your hands after being out getting ready for Christmas on a wonderful December day. The vibrations are produced by pulling a spring from its zero position with the help of magnets. The advantage with welding is that there is no need for adhesives and screws.

    Moreover, the technique is clean, fast, energy efficient and it is characterised by high productivity with lower costs than alternative methods. Examples of components include different types of tanks and covers that have to be bonded, e.g. fuel tanks.

    Branson was founded in 1946, the same year as Green & Co. However, the vibration welding technology is hardly 30-years-old and Branson is the pioneer in the field.
