Upgrades For Plastic Welders

A line of heat-staking and heat-inserting plastic welders features rugged LCD-touchscreen displays and a readily adjustable and rigid H-frame that eliminates flexing.

Other welder features include prewired harnesses with connectors for both lowvoltage controllers and high-voltage heaters. The low-voltage harness has six connectors to run six zones. The harness for heaters can be daisy-chained from one module to the next. The controllers are plug-in modules with master/slave capability. Each master controller powers up to three heaters plus three more slave modules each of which powers three more heaters. The welders also have a step-up mode that jogs the head down to quickly align the probe. The presses are preprogrammed to accept optional slide kits, postcooling, fixture clamping, and optional switches.
