Pinweld have created an advanced and innovative precision welding technology capable of accurately joining plastic and composite components. Government funding from Innovate UK has allowed us to access valuable scientific support from specialists at TWI (The Welding Institute) and The University of Bath that continues to accelerate the technology.

Revolutionising how industry sees plastics thanks to new jointing technology

Used across the globe in the high value mouldings of many industries, plastics are a wonder material. Joining them however has its limitations. Pinweld’s new technology, therefore, has huge potential. This intelligent, highly automated plastic welding system is currently being developed to excel in piped water applications, however, with its inherent benefits it can easily be adopted by other industries.

Scarcity of water globally and ambitious leak reduction targets were key drivers for Pinweld to develop a new technology. Building on the benefits of existing butt and electro fusion jointing technologies, Pinweld has developed a plastic pipe welding system which provides incredible accuracy and strength with discreet joints. An innovative, yet simple technology, its design aids effective leak-free installation for a multitude of plastic types revolutionising how the world sees plastics. Expected to transform installation, it has also been noted that the technology could readily be used to repair rather than replace existing infrastructure.

Reliable, stronger and intelligently-controlled jointing

Utilising testing facilities at TWI (The Welding Institute) and with guidance from the Water Research Centre, Pinweld’s technology already surpasses the American standard for strength while also reducing the steps required to meet UK plastic pipe installation specification WIS 4-32-08/4. The process also enables previously unavailable levels of control and quality assurance.

Utilising significantly less power than existing methods of jointing pipes and providing greater efficacy through continuous operator feedback, the process also negates the need for destructive testing. Alongside these benefits, the expected reduction in joint repair will mean notable cost-savings across the lifespan of the pipe as well as water loss reduction.

More than just a ‘pipe’ dream – technology suitable for multi-environments

Thorough research and testing with our partners have been key aspects of the development process. Outstanding test results prove strong, precise and consistent welds every time meaning the technology could be effective for a range of industries. It can easily be adopted across other commercial applications and is effective for any environments where discreet and reliable linear plastic welding is required.

Pinweld continues to engage with eminent experts and influential parties within all aspects of pipe manufacture and installation. Equally, Pinweld are happy to speak with designers, consultants and companies who feel this technology could have a role to play within their industries. Development licenses and other commercial agreements provide the ideal opportunity to help support your thermoplastic and composite joining objectives.
