Product Description

HEAT STAKING TIPS
Staking: Also referred to as “heading” or “riveting”, staking is the process of forming a plastic stud (boss) over another component to hold the two pieces together.
 
Staking Tips are custom made for your application. Please specify in order notes during checkout based on size chart below.

For hollow stake applications, provide your information by email to abbeoncal@abbeon.com or use our online form here.  Also include a dimensional drawing and type of material for your part.

(See these Types of Stakes (image) in our Video and Docs tab above).


Standard Flared Stake: This stake satisfies most applications. It is recommended for bosses with an O.D. of 1/16" or larger, ideally suited for low density nonabrasive amorphous plastics.



Spherical Stake: Recommended for rigid crystalline plastics with sharp highly defined melding temperatures, for plastics w/abrasive fillers, and for materials that degrade easily.

  

Hollow Stake: Bosses with an O.D. in excess of 5/32" should be made hollow. This produces a large strong head without having to meld a large amount of material. Also, the hollow stake avoids sink mark on the opposite side of the component and enables the parts to be reassembled with self-tapping screws should repair and disassembly be necessary.
