Variety in Welding
In addition to cleaning technology, welding of plastics is another field of activity at KLN Ultraschall AG, Heppenheim, Germany. Processes offered include ultrasonic welding, vibration welding, heated tool welding, spin welding, thermal welding and infrared welding. In all fields, KLN offers complete production lines, including standard machines, tooling, robots, feed technology and various other components.
A new product is the US-QC hand manipulator RK1 (Fig. 1). This unit is intended to ensure that the operator reaches a specified depth at all welding points during short welding production runs. The part is not released by the system until this is accomplished. The interchangeable, coded part holder makes the unit ideal for multiple projects.
An additional new development from KLN Ultraschall is the Toolmaster Advance IR 1200 infrared heated tool welding machine (Fig. 2). All axes on this system are powered by servomotors, which allow the machine to reach all positions precisely and quickly. Depending on the part geometry, retraction times of about two seconds are achievable. Short retraction times (retraction of the heated tool) are important especially when welding high-temperature plastics.
