New Spin Welders Extend Application Range for Plastic Assembly

Dukane broadens its comprehensive range of plastic assembly products by introducing two new spin welders. The powerful 3HP and 5HP direct-drive spin welders (Model No. SVB031 and SVB051) expand the application range of existing spin welders by utilizing high-performance variable frequency drivers coupled to an industry standard PLC user interface.

Built upon a heavy-duty base and column, the new spin welders feature exceptional rigidity and a machined and polished platen with threaded mounting holes. The vertical operation of the thruster is pneumatically controlled for quiet, clean operation. The built-in compressed air regulator and pressure gauge provide the operator with a familiar control layout and positive tactile feedback. The rack and pinion height adjustment is counterbalanced with a heavy-duty gas strut for ease of adjustment. Precise weld depth is achieved using optical limit switches. Operator safety is assured by use of dual palm switches which comply with OSHA regulations.

Both spin welders provide a high, constant torque during the weld cycle (unlike inertial welders). The motor is computer controlled and features digital RPM setting controls and DC or optional dynamic braking. The user interface features a 2 line, 16 character high contrast LCD display. The 20-key keypad uses a sealed membrane and is color coded for easy function identification. The operator is clearly stepped through the SETUP menu to perform the initial setup process. The user also has a MODIFY menu to change the operating parameters and a RUN menu with four different operating modes. Built-in diagnostics
and custom automation support for part pickup 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.
