Plastic Fabrication

Finding the right plastic welding equipment can be a real challenge. When looking to find plastic welding equipment to fit your need it is crucial that you know its application. Although there is a fitting solution for all plastic welding requests, some welding tools are not suitable for certain kinds of plastic materials. Simply put: If you know the material, the working area, the kind of assembly, your choice of plastic welder will be much easier. Plasgroup can help you every step of the way.

Which Plastic?

Today’s markets are flooded with an infinite number of plastic materials and blends. In such an environment trying to recognize the plastic’s family is not easy, but it is very important that you do. All plastics are different to each other in behavior and in chemical structure. The type of plastic welding rod used will make the difference between a strong weld and poor weld quality.



Commonly available plastic materials can be recognized by four simple identification tests. Most testing labs offer plastic identification as a service or you can try the following tests yourself.

Our Fabrication Process

Built Locally

  • 01

    PLASGROUP is proudly Australian owned and operated where practical gives preference to and supports Australian suppliers of raw materials for use in our products.

  • 02

    PLASGROUP has grown to include a comprehensive range of plastic welding equipment,

  • 03

    PLASGROUP predominatly sources from German manufacturers who source and build locally, thus ensuring German quality and strenght built in.

  • 04

    If there is an application that requires a specific polymer or a custom colour or shape that is not listed in our standard welding rod range, feel free to contact us and we will be only too happy to assist you in getting you fabricating with your own cost effective alternative.

Hüerner Butt Welders

  • 01

    Hürner butt-welding technologies, that’s getting the most out of butt welding.

  • 02

    From 160 mm (including reducers down to 40 mm) through 1200 mm, the comprehensive product line offers machines for any work environment

  • 03

    Fully manual butt welding, manual welding with report generation by way of an add-on report generation system or an on-board report generator.

  • 04

    CNC welding with automatic report generation and with or without Hürner Distance Control (HDC), i.e. Hürner’s welding/melting road and carriage movement sensor.

Control quality

  • 01

    HÜRNER SPG 2000 and SPG 2000 Basic Report Generation Units for fast, accurate monitoring and recording of weld values under DVS and other national standards (WIS, INSTA, etc.).

  • 02

    The Report Generation Units SPG 2000 and SPG 2000 Basic can be universally used with any mechanically operated butt-welding machine and with all hydraulically operated machines from KWH Tech, as well as with various other makes.

  • 03

    With the SPG 2000 / SPG 2000 Basic, it is possible to capture all the data needed to evaluate the quality of a welding operation and to transfer them to a printer, a PC with the Hürner DataWork software installed, or to the internal micro-printer.
