Branson- Hot Plate Welding Systems

Supplier: Consonic

Hot plate welding is beneficial to manufacturers seeking to join thermoplastic parts where both high-strength and hermetic seals are required, or where parts have complex geometries, such as irregular shape, or curved or internal walls. Several models of hot plate welders are available to accommodate parts up to 72" x 24" in size. Models are available with horizontal or vertical plates. This process is often employed to assemble batteries, fluid reservoirs, lighters, or other challenging plastics joining applications where cost-effective methods and strong seals are crucial.


HH-15 Hot Plate Welder
Branson's Model HH-15 hot plate welder (at right) combines versatility in a small footprint. The distinctive feature of this welder is its horizontal platen, which enables it to process parts that are not adaptable to standard vertical hot plate welders.

Features of the HH-15 hot plate welder include an interlocked door with full guarding, which provides operator safety; an automatic cycle start for increased production rates; a single zone temperature controller for precise temperature control, and an optional auto part pickup system to facilitate part loading.

Models HH24S, HH24A, HH42A, and HH72A
Branson's HH-Series horizontal hot plate welders are complete assembly systems designed to weld parts up to 24" by 72" (610 by 1829 mm), or multiple smaller parts. (Note: the HH24S platen size is 24" by 19"/610 x 483 mm.)

Standard Features:
Touch panel human-machine interface - for quick setup and user friendly operation
Interlocked safety doors with full guarding provide maximum operator safety
Heavy duty construction for consistent alignment of tools/platen
Allen-Bradley SLC-500 - provides precise machine control with easy cycle parameter modification
Automatic cycle start for increased production rates
Independent zone temperature controllers (number based on individual model) -- allows for uniform temperature control over entire platen
Digital temperature controllers for precise temperature control over entire platen
Linear displacement transducer for platen and carriage position -- eliminates limit switches, improves position and speed control
Hydraulic proportional valves provide smooth, precise motion resulting in consistent parts.
