VW5700LPT Vibration Welder

Robust Design to Assemble Wider and Shorter Parts

Dukane’s WIDE part size machine was developed to weld wider and shorter parts such as intake manifolds and other parts sized up to 950 mm x 510 mm. 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. Four continuously supported linear rails and eight reciprocating bearings provide with the best table slide system in the industry.

Flexibility and Adaptability

The LPT machine design incorporates an upper tooling head with an industry standard 80 mm x 80 mm mounting bolt pattern. It also includes 6 mounting holes in the lower table to accept industry standard tooling.

Operator Friendly 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. Optional automatic load/unload station, indexing part conveyors, adjustable safety switches and quick tool changing cart makes it more operator friendly.

Efficient Process Control with Advanced HMI Software

Programming capabilities for multiple sensors and pneumatic valves simplifies complex tooling set up. Built in logical control eliminates the need of PLC programming expert for changing simple standard machine logic. Provides real time graphing of amplitude, pressure, and collapse distance, which gives users additional control to monitor, evaluate and troubleshoot their vibration welding process.

Dukane’s WIDE part size machine was developed for wider, shorter parts such as intake manifolds and other parts sized up to 950 mm x 510 mm. Like all Dukane vibration welders, the VW5700LPT features a fully welded rectangular steel tubing frame and lift table. The vibration bridge is flame cut from a slab of 200 mm thick steel, then precision machined to within 0.1 mm. 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 25KN 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.
