Yes, ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) can be spin welded. It is a thermoplastic material that can be welded using spin welding technique. However, the process parameters such as spindle speed, axial load, and welding time may vary depending on the specific grade and thickness of the material being welded. It is always recommended to perform some testing to optimize the process parameters for a particular application.
