Spin Welder Is Accurate to 0.1 Degree

Dukane's new ServoWeld� Spin Welder is designed to precisely assemble thermoplastic parts which have a circular joint. The spin welder is built around a servo motor that controls the radial orientation of the finished part with a accuracy of better than +/- one-tenth of a degree. Compared to competing machines using induction motors, servo motors produce more torque in a smaller package and have a quicker spin-down time to eliminate excess flash and bond shearing. These integrated bench-top machines are more compact than earlier spin welders and suitable for both stand-alone production or for integration into automated equipment. Two different models are currently being previewed. One is a high-speed/low-torque machine for small assemblies up to about 80mm diameter and the other is a low-speed/high-torque model for larger assemblies.

The Servo Spin Welder incorporates new controls using color touch-screen technology with an intuitive menu structure. The touch screen accesses a rich list of features including pre-load or pre-spin modes, part-pickup and torque-sense triggering. The Servo Spin Welders can weld by time, number of turns, or absolute distance, with or without the radial positioning engaged. The machine stores up to eight setup files in its memory, and has programmable limits on all primary process parameters. Mechanical and pneumatic settings are placed behind a lockable panel to prevent unauthorized adjustment. The ServoWeld� Spin Welders also meet CE requirements.

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.
