VW5700 Vibration Welder

Get Efficient Process Control with Advanced HMI Software

Provides real time graphing of amplitude, pressure, and collapse distance, which gives users additional control to monitor, evaluate and troubleshoot their vibration welding process. Built in logical control eliminates the need of PLC programming expert for changing simple standard machine logic.

Enjoy the Ergonomic Features

Large mechanical mass of the linear vibration head coupled with the solid welded tubular steel frame construction eliminate machine failure due to process vibration and provides one of the quietest machines in the industry, reducing operator fatigue.

Reduce your Downtime and maintenance cost with Dukane

Backward and forward engineered compatibility means up to 80% of components in welders are interchangeable providing better flexibility and adaptability. Twenty Gallon Rexroth hydraulic power unit with heat exchanger and proportional valve, give the unit a superior service life.

Sturdy Mechanical Features

Four continuously supported linear rails and eight reciprocating bearings provide with the best table slide system in the industry. Heaviest-in-class, one-piece flame cut bridge stops unwanted vibration at its source. Robust frame with numerous cross members to support dovetail slide system for table. Tubular steel table with 1” (25mm) thick Blanchard ground surface provides stable platform for lower tooling.

Dukane’s standard size machine packs all the features you want and need for an upper part size of 1100 mm x 450 mm or less. Like all Dukane vibration welders, the VW5700 features a fully welded rectangular steel tubing frame and lift table. The vibration bridge is flame cut from a 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 22KN of table clamp force, capable of flattening warped parts prior to welding. The rigid part support table is supported by eight linear ball bearing packs on four independently adjusted, ground steel guide rails. This bearing/alignment design maintains precise motion throughout the entire 500mm table travel. The compact 2600 mm wide by 1300 mm deep overall machine footprint fits into tight spaces. All Dukane 5000 series welders incorporate a 380mm diagonal, 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.
