Company's Model 1216 blister sealer automatically feeds blisters into nesting trays, picks and places cards, provides a positive seal and ejects the finished package. The Camco six-position drive reportedly assures greater index accuracy with smoother acceleration and deceleration than a conventional Genevera drive. A toggle activated seal head affords higher pressure for a more uniform seal. Model 1216 accepts standard tooling for other six-station blister sealers. Cycle rates to 20 cpm are claimed.


See Emabond Systems


Manufactures equipment for heat-sealing plastic materials to each other or to coated paperboard. Machinery ranges from basic semi-automatic versions to fully automated equipment. Two sealing methods are used: 1) applying heat and pressure to the back of the lidding material or paperboard and 2) applying heat and pressure to the face of the plastic material. Typical applications are conventional blister packages and lidded trays. Also available is a complete line of thermoforming equipment and automatic loaders to be used with company's heat-sealing equipment.


A wide range of 20-kHz ultrasonic systems with 150- to 3200-w power handle most thermoplastic assembly requirements, including welding, staking, swaging, spot welding, inserting, and degating. Each unit contains an electronic programmer that automatically controls power output, ultrasonic exposure, and pneumatic sequences. Dynamic triggering reportedly ensures that optimum conditions are reached before weld cycle begins. A system protection monitor is designed to safeguard components and ensure optimum results. Microprocessor-controlled 20-kHz systems enable constant-time or constant-energy welding and precise weld control. An ultrasonic trim knife and hand-held units are also available.

Company also offers a line of modular 40-kHz equipment with the same features as 20-kHz equipment. The higher frequency results in lower amplitude and more gentle vibration that can be beneficial for certain applications involving small, delicate parts. Component systems are available for automated production lines.

The Series 900M microprocessor-based power unit/controller for ultrasonic welding features multiple operational modes: conventional time welding, time welding with energy limits, energy welding with time limits, time/energy compensation welding, continuous and multiple-distance welding. The units are used with 20- and 40-kHz actuators. Integrated units are also available. Company offers software packages for external control of welders and statistical process control.


Ultrasonic welders for low- to medium-power plastics applications are offered. A 100-w, 40-kHz, or 50-kHz "Gentle Touch" system is designed for small, delicate parts. A 125-w, 40-kHz "Model Shop 40" is available for plastic model building, as is a 450-w system that can accommodate medium-sized assembly applications. A 900-w system is also available for larger units. An ultrasonic analyzer for testing systems and horns is also available. Company also manufactures horns and automatic assembly systems.

The "Injectiweld" system is a hand-held welding gun that continuously feeds and melts a rod of thermoplastic (HDPE, ABS, PP, PS) and extrudes it under pressure as a continuous bead in the weld zone. The hot tip of the gun melts the surface of the substrate to be joined (of the same polymer as the welding gun), and the extrusion pressure causes an intimate joining of the bead and substrate in what the company calls a "true weld."


Company's ultrasonic plastic assembly systems weld, stake, seal, seam, and degate plastic parts and products. Dukane 20- and 40-kHz ultrasonic welding systems, ranging in power output from 350 to 2000 w, are said to consume less energy, improve quality, and eliminate need for fasteners or adhesives. Company's extensive line of ultrasonic equipment, recommended for applications in automotive, appliance, biomedical, electrical, textile, toy, and aerospace industries, includes rugged microcomputer-controlled press and thruster systems, SRT series rotary parts-handling systems, ultrasonic hand-gun and probe systems, and precision-machined ultrasonic horns and fixtures.

The Ultra-Com microcomputer for controlling and monitoring ultrasonic welding operations enhances the performance, accuracy, and productivity of company's heavy-duty thruster/press systems. It allows processors to ensure that the same amount of material melts in the joint each time for fewer rejects.


The Emaweld system for electromagnetic welding uses inductive energy to create fusion bonds between thermoplastic parts. The system consists of a generator, water-cooled coils and special, magnetically active preforms. Preforms are fitted between parts and heated electromagnetically by the generator and coils. Fusion temperatures are reached in seconds. The system reportedly can weld most thermoplastics, including reinforced grades, quickly and cleanly, and is said to be especially effective in attaining reliable pressure-tight structural bonds. It also handles large or irregular shapes and is built as a turnkey operation, widely used in the medical, consumer, automotive, filter, battery and container markets.


Offers its Compak induction cap sealer, a noncontact system which establishes a magnetic field that heats the foil in the cap liner and creates a hermetic seal. Company's systems are solid-state for high reliability and low maintenance and are reportedly effective and efficient with their "instant on" capability and an automatic frequency control, which provides constant flux density, unaffected by the number of caps under the sealing head. Various unique coil designs handle virtually any application, regardless of container material, size, shape or product fill. Compak's design allows mounting of cap sealer directly over conveyor, saving floor space.


Equipment offered includes:

* Heat equipment to stake together pieces of dissimilar materials using heat, pressure and time.

Also offered is the hand-held 7-lb X-True-Weld welder for thick thermoplastic sheets. Unit employs a single-tube heating system, which continuously feeds standard plastic welding rods into a melting chamber through a motor-driven wheel-feeding mechanism. The molten stream is forced out by the incoming cold plastic rod, resulting in one-pass welding. The PTFE welding "shoes," which are available in four thicknesses and three configurations for flat, inside-corner and outside-corner welds, automatically size-match molten plastic for the correct amount and shape of weld, according to the company.

Machine cycle time is 24-30 sec. Automatic web unwind/rewind stands, weld/scrap winders and automatic splicing machines with speeds up to 800 ft/min are also available.


Builds special machinery for its hot-air staking ("hot-cold upset") process. A hot-air gun blows flow-controlled air across the plastic boss, which is then upset with a cold rod that extracts the heat from the plastic to form any shape head desired. Because the boss is thermally reformed with hot air and not mechanically formed, there reportedly is no tendency to delayed stress-cracking, as may be caused by ultrasonic staking or orbital riveting. Higher strength assemblies are said to result, since material around the boss reportedly is undamaged by the assembly process. Machinery cost is said to be 40-60% less than for ultrasonic staking and 10% less than for conventional heat staking. Any number of bosses on various planes and/or angles can be upset at the same time. Assembly time is said to be less than 10 sec, regardless of the number of bosses.


High-frequency dielectric heat-sealing equipment from 1 to 100 kw is designed for welding, heat sealing, embossing, and die cutting supported and unsupported vinyls and other thermoplastics.
