The article focuses on ultrasonic plastic welding which gives assemblers flexibility for joining various plastic or metal parts as well as thermoplastics. It is indicated that this process is very famous for joining semicrystalline and amorphous thermoplastics and its composites. Ultrasonic metal welding applies mechanical vibrations to the joint interface that produces a scrubbing motion between two surfaces. In addition, its application are extensive, and it can be used in the electronic, automotive and aerospace products businesses.
