Robust Design to Assemble Wider and Shorter Parts
Dukane’s WIDE part size machine was developed to weld wider and shorter parts such as intake manifolds and other parts sized up to 950 mm x 510 mm. Heaviest-in-class, one-piece flame cut bridge stops unwanted vibration at its source. Robust frame with numerous cross members to support dovetail slide system for table. Tubular steel table with 1” (25mm) thick Blanchard ground surface provides stable platform for lower tooling. Four continuously supported linear rails and eight reciprocating bearings provide with the best table slide system in the industry.
Flexibility and Adaptability
The LPT machine design incorporates an upper tooling head with an industry standard 80 mm x 80 mm mounting bolt pattern. It also includes 6 mounting holes in the lower table to accept industry standard tooling.
Operator Friendly Ergonomic Features
Large mechanical mass of the linear vibration head coupled with the solid welded tubular steel frame construction eliminate machine failure due to process vibration and provides one of the quietest machines in the industry, reducing operator fatigue. Optional automatic load/unload station, indexing part conveyors, adjustable safety switches and quick tool changing cart makes it more operator friendly.
Efficient Process Control with Advanced HMI Software
Programming capabilities for multiple sensors and pneumatic valves simplifies complex tooling set up. Built in logical control eliminates the need of PLC programming expert for changing simple standard machine logic. Provides real time graphing of amplitude, pressure, and collapse distance, which gives users additional control to monitor, evaluate and troubleshoot their vibration welding process.
