TH3-2040, Hot Gas,Infrared, & Hot Plate Welding
TH3 – Thermal Welder
Flexible welding – One platform, three welding solutions Rapid changeover between Hot Plate, Hot Gas, and Infrared tools. Infinitely programmable positions for tooling and platen.
Intelligent Tooling Interface Reduce Setup time with Auto-Teach and Automatic Tool ID for tool and process specific recipe recall.
FAST!!! High speed smooth servo motion for reduced cycle time. Start welding faster with Auto-Teach Tooling Setup. Easy to learn HMI (Reduce training).
Improve dimensional stability with Precision & Repeatability Eliminate manual adjustments with the servo-controlled upper tool, lower tool, and heater platen. 3 axis coordinated servo motion with torque feedback for reliable process monitoring and control.
Hot Gas Welding Oxidation free welding solution eliminates outgassing, yielding the strongest welds. Ability to weld – Rigid, Flexible, glass and talc-filled thermoplastic materials. Capable of welding dissimilar materials. Reduces mechanical stress on the plastic parts.
Infrared Welding Custom contoured quartz short-wave emitters designed for greater range and part variability. Particulate free welding with a non-contact process for improved part quality and aesthetics.
Hot Plate Easily accommodates multi-plane and contoured parts. Multiple temperature zones for maximum melt control.
Provides the largest welding table in the industry with the smallest footprint, 25% smaller than current models.
Repeatable process and consistent results
Melt-Match® technology provides repeatable process and consistent results by precisely controlling all phases of the welding process.
Melt-Match® parameters control the welding process “in motion” with real time closed-loop force control in addition to the real time velocity control. Force and weld velocity can be programmed in 10 independent segments to match the melt flow rate of the material.
Avoid weld joints deformation and cold welds
Melt-Detect™ feature resumes motion once the plastic material has started to melt. By using Melt-Detect™ a user can avoid weld joints deformation and cold welds during the welding process, get uniform melt, and a hermetic seal.
Instant Validation of Good Part
More meaningful data is obtained for instant validation of a good part. It reduces manufacturing cost with improved first pass yield and user can easily replicate a proven welding process from one system on additional VW 6000 series systems with 100% electric control and no pneumatics to adjust
Melt-Match® technology Melt-Match® technology matches the speed of the melt of plastic with the speed of the table to eliminate the displacement of liquid and solid plastic in the weld joint which reduces degradation and oxidation of the material
Improved weld strength and decrease particulate Patented software technology coordinates servo motion, force feedback, and variable plastic melt flow. By matching table motion with the plastic melt flow it provides strongest weld
Consistent dimensional stability for your parts Four supportive rails ensure no movement of table during the welding process and eight precision-guided linear bearings improve the parallelism of the table, increasing first run tool capability
Reduce install time and cost with one piece of construction Eliminating disassembly/assembly between site to site movement reduces total rigging cost
Ensure quality part Real-time graphing of amplitude, force, & distance
Repeatable process and consistent results with patented Melt-Match® Provides repeatable process and consistent results by precisely programming ultrasonic stack velocity, force and position throughout the welding process
Accurate Control Accurately controls all phases of the ultrasonic welding process with servo driven patented Melt-Match® technology
Uniform Melt & Hermetic Seal with Melt-Detect™ Get uniform melt, and a hermetic seal with Melt-Detect™ feature, that resumes motion only when the material has started to melt to avoid cold welds or deformation of energy directors
Tighter Standard Deviation Improves confidence in total quality with a tighter standard deviation of dimensional accuracy and weld strength with 100% digital all-electric control
Instant Validation More meaningful data for instant validation of a good part and reduce manufacturing cost with improved first-pass yield
100% electric control and no pneumatics to adjust Easily replicate a proven welding process from one system on additional InfinityTM systems with 100% electric control and no pneumatics to adjust
Superior Results Multiple welding modes include Weld by Distance (encoder required), Energy, Peak Power, Time, and Continuous Mode with process limits for all the parameters.
Accuracy and Repeatability Upgraded 3rd Generation hardware and firmware delivers an industry-leading acquisition rate of 0.5ms increases process accuracy and repeatability. Power Factor Correction (PFC) circuitry provides > 92% power efficiency, reducing energy consumption and operating costs. Higher throughput with amplitude regulation.
