“The Drader,” as our loyal customers refer to it, is a hand-held plastic injection welding fabrication and repair system known worldwide for its ease of use and strong welds. Unlike hot air plastic welders, Injection plastic welding uses radiant heat from a heated weld tip or nozzle and injects molten plastic weld rod below the surface of the parent plastic to form very strong welds. Independent tests show these welds are extremely strong and durable. Our clients get longer life out of their plastics, reduce waste and achieve cost savings for their business.
The Drader Injectiweld has interchangeable tips and an automatic feed system that enables a person to use the welder with one hand. The welding rod is automatically drawn into the gun by a set of rod driver wheels and fed into the connecting tube where it is nipped off, packed into the barrel, and melted.
Benefits of plastic injection welding:
- Very strong welds
- Scraping off surface oxidation is not necessary
- Stronger, more reliable welds than hot air sticks
- Multiple types of thermoplastics can be welded using this method
