Dukane’s answer for small part welding. This small machine packs all the features used in Dukane’s larger vibration welders into a smaller footprint when factory floor space is tight and the finished part size is 400mm x 500mm or less. Like all Dukane vibration welders, the VW5300 features a fully welded rectangular steel tubing frame and lift table. The vibration bridge is flame cut from a single slab of 170mm thick steel, then precision machined to within 0.1mm. High strength tempered steel springs support the cast stainless steel lamination carriers. These carriers are investment cast for increased fatigue life. A compact, fully contained hydraulic power unit provides up to 13KN of table clamp force, capable of flattening warped parts prior to welding.
The rigid part support table is supported by four, wide base linear ball bearings. This bearing/alignment design maintains precise motion throughout the entire 500mm table travel. The compact 1200 mm wide by 1400 mm deep overall machine footprint fits into tight spaces.
All Dukane 5000 series welders incorporate a 380mm color touchscreen for easy viewing. Tooling Inputs/Outputs are assignable and can be enabled at multi-set points in the welding process. Dukane’s patented Digital Frequency Drive closes the loop on vibration frequency, table position and welding amplitude. The welding process is dynamically programmable and controlled at up to 5 set points during the weld. All Dukane 5000 series welders include our unique “Q-Factor” tooling quality balance measurement. Using this diagnostic tool helps pinpoint potential unbalance issues with tooling or machine components.
