Abstract This paper aims to investigate the effects of welding conditions and the correlation between welding strengths and interfaces structures on the weld between polylactide (PLA) and poly (methyl methacrylate) (PMMA). Using our proposed ultrasonic weld (USW) method, PLA and PMMA composites (PLA/PMMA) are valid to employ as interposed sheet (IPS) experimentally. There are optimum welding times and welding presses depending on the peak welding strengths. The maximum welding strength can… CONTINUE READING
