High Speed Welding Machine
This machine initially started as a development study and it has in turn led to tens of machines being supplied over a number of years. The client is a global leader in packaging and labelling solutions.
Ultimately the project has provided fully automated, high speed welding machines, capable of operating 24/7 at 1,000 metres of film per minute. The machines run continuously even during reel changes.
The system was designed to a modular concept. There are 5 key areas: Unwind and Splice, Accumulator, Web Guide, Core Welder, and Rewinder.
Each machine is PLC controlled, integrated with a touch screen graphic display. The HMI displays necessary operating information and good fault diagnosis information.
These machines have been supplied around the world. Huxley Bertram supports these units remotely and provides annual on-site maintenance for the client.
