Bending and edging welding machines
WEGENER bending and edging welding machines – quality in series
Bending and edging welding, also called welding by bending with heated tool, is a mixture of a bending and a heated tool butt welding process. An upper V-shaped heating element is hereby placed on the bending line and then melted into the board or panel thickness. At the same time a second, lower heated tool with a flat surface heats the underside of the boards or panels. At the end of the heating process the boards or panels are folded according to the angle of bevel. The plasticised bonding areas are brought together during the folding process and joined to each other by the resulting welding pressure. DVS Guideline 2207-14 describes the welding by bending process in more detail. This method is ideal to produce bends for rectangular tanks, e.g. for electroplating systems, troughs, air ducts, covers, drums, gas scrubbers and large-volume housings.
Our bending and edging welding machines really come into their own wherever efficient production, high process reliability and reproducible quality are needed. These Wegener machines are also characterised by their tough and long-lasting machine technology, ease of operation as well as an excellent value for money.
During butt welding, panels of thermoplastic materials are heated along their edges by a heating sword and bonded together by pressure. The joint cools down under pressure and is extremely low in stress and even. Plastic components that are manufactured in this way are characterised by their great durability and material strength and are used in numerous fields thanks to their outstanding properties, including HVAC engineering, the packaging industry, wastewater engineering, pipe insulation, tank construction, electroplated tank construction, apparatus engineering, right through to the construction industry in the manufacture of protective plates for concrete.
Our butt welding machines show their strength wherever efficient manufacturing, high process reliability and reproducible quality are needed. WEGENER butt welding machines are characterised by their tough and long-lasting machine technology, ease of operation as well as their excellent value for money.
We have been developing, designing, building and selling equipment and machinery to process thermoplastic materials since 1957. The focus of our work lies in plastic welding and bending technology. The large number of worldwide installations has guaranteed our market leadership in the field of plastic boards processing for decades. It doesn't matter whether you want to process plastic boards or sheets, Twin-Wall boards with hollow chambers concrete protective liners, inliners, foams, panels, pallets, boxes, preforms or other thermoplastic components; we've got the right solution for your production. From a compact stand-alone machine through fully automated production plants right down to highly-specialised, product-specific custom machines, we plan highly efficient and top-quality machine technology in a close dialogue with you.
