New Hot Plate Welder Widens Application Field for Plastic Assembly
Dukane expands its comprehensive
range of plastic assembly solutions by unveiling the first in a new
series of hot plate welders capable of welding virtually all
thermoplastics. The compact horizontal Model HHB1223P expands the
application field by utilizing advanced PLC controlled dual-zone
heating. An integrated display/control panel clearly steps the
operator through the menus to setup the process and modify the
Built on a rugged, steel frame, the new hot plate welder features easy tooling changeover, quick operator access and economical operation. The horizontal tooling platens are pneumatically operated for quiet operation. A vacuum system in the upper tool senses part presence and holds the part securely in the tool. The heater / thermocouple feedback
loops are digitally controlled and burnout protection is available. Operator safety is assured by use of the interlocked manual-close/ auto-open door and a fully automatic safety door with light curtains is also available.
Unlike previous hot plate welding systems, the closed-loop feedback control maintains the programmed temperatures, pressure and weld time for repeatable operation to ensure welding consistency. Built-in diagnostics to minimize downtime and custom automation outputs are standard features.
Dukane offers a full range of ultrasonic, vibration, spin and hot plate welders, thermal presses, probes, tooling and software for both OEM and the commercial plastic assembly markets. Dukane is an ISO 9001:2000 certified manufacturer with 24/7 Service.
