Standard Features

The impressive list of standard features include:

  • 3 servo-driven platens: upper and lower press platens and heated platen provide fast and precise force, velocity, and displacement control for consistent melt and seal profile.
  • Coordinated press platen motion ensures consistent melt and seal profile regardless of upper and lower press toll height.
  • Pneumatic, quick-change, press tool clamping system allows for simple and easy removal and installation of press tools.
  • Fully supported, horizontal heated platen prevents deflection and ensures consistency.
  • On-board SPC data logging of previous 50 cycles provides an accurate history for monitoring quality.
  • (16) recipe storage capacity allows for efficient setup and adjustment of process parameters.
  • Allen-Bradley CompactLogix Processor and PanelView Plus 6.5″ (165 mm) color, touchscreen HMI delivers intuitive machine control.
  • English and metric units.
  • Multiple languages.
  • Automatic teach mode eliminates the guesswork of initial process setup.
  • Multiple temperature control zones; Max temp: 1000° F (538° C) maintain isothermal heated tooling.
  • Heater burnout and open thermocouple monitoring halts operation in case of malfunction.
  • Thermal expansion compensation technology maintains the centered position of heated tooling while allowing for thermal expansion.
  • User-defined I/O for tooling functions enables easy configuration of sensors and valves through the operator interface.
  • Interlocking, pneumatic safety doors with safety pressure strips protect operator from heated tooling and press motion.
  • Safe-exit emergency stop routine prevents over-exposure of parts to the heated platen.
  • Top-mount, duct, steel hood with 12″ diameter vent outlet connects to air ventilation system to safely evacuate any off-gassing from the welding process.
  • Lighting inside machine illuminates internal working area.
  • Hinged, heat-shielded access panels with safety interlocking provide convenient and safe access to internal components for maintenance.

Additional Options

Available options include:

  • Stage II data collection package provides remote SPC data acquisition.
  • Calibration kit allows for recalibration of machine.
  • Quick-change tooling package enables faster and easier tool changes.
  • Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) with controlled shutdown mode (CSM) protects operators and machine in the event of power failure.
  • Cleanroom package meets requirements and specifications for machine to operate in a cleanroom.
  • High-acceleration press platens (Model 1015 only) provides improved material release from heated tooling after melt phase.
  • Barcode reading/processing capability allows for integration with manufacturing traceability systems.
