BIVALENT WELDING MACHINE
WITH HOT-PLATE AND LOCALIZED INFRARED
If you are reading this news, we greet you! We are happy to have you on the website of GS Finishing Machines. If you visited our old website, then welcome back! Everything is new, except the address. We have decided to create a rich, well thought, user-friendly website. In one word, a website that looks like our finishing machines!
All this talking about novelties has the aim to introduce you to the real theme: the bivalent welding machine, that joins the hot-plate welding and the welding with localized infrared. This machine is still a new entry in the world of the welding machines for thermoplastic articles.
WELDING OF DIFFERENT THERMOPLASTIC MATERIALS
The two welding techniques that have been combined, hot-plate welding and localized infrared welding, have not been chosen randomly. All materials that can be hot-plate welded – and there is plenty of them – can also be infrared-welded: if you choose this machine, you can be sure to be able to use both techniques on a great number of different thermoplastic articles.
WELDING OF ARTICLES DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER
The main advantage of this machine is to join two complementary welding techniques, as far as the machined articles are concerned. Hot-plate welding is the most flexible technique, that enables to weld also articles not perfectly repeatable or that have irregular welding areas. Localized infrared-welding can instead be used only on dimensionally repeatable articles, with regular welding areas and that have always the same distance to the emitter. On the other hand, infrared welding produces clean and precise weldings and do not need maintenance, since there is no contact between emitter and welding areas.
What can be obtained with this diverse application? The possibility to use the same machine to weld dimensionally different articles as well as articles that are perfectly repeatable, potentially covering the 100% of the machined articles.
WHERE IS THE TRICK?
There is no trick. On the contrary there are other various advantages:
- quick change of the customized welding device, from hot-plate to emitter and vice-versa
- automatic detection of the welding fixture installed
- frame made of re-inforced aluminum profiles: very light and resistant
- optionals: use of the same dies for both welding techniques and multiple welding stations.
Do you want to know the technical details? Here you can find everything about the bivalent welding machine.
Since our customers have appreciated the combination of hot-plate and localized infrared welding very much, we have extended such feature also to the welding machine for wide surfaces. But…one thing at a time!
