Benefits that can be obtained using the high quality (and rather expensive) PTFE materials in tensile architecture are conditioned with employment of technically advanced equipment, such as special PTFE welding machines.
Balacchi has developed the series of machines for welding of PTFE & silicone coated material.
The design of BR10PTFE welding machines involves the big C frame that gives wide space for material handling.
The machine is produced as single-rod (just for heating) or as “double-head” system that enables the welding of PTFE sheets with subsequent cooling of material just underwent the high-temperature sealing.
The range offered is widespread: from long welding machine (1000-1800mm) to small welding irons, known as popular hand welding tools.
An important feature of Balacchi PTFE welders is the short welding process, which is possible thanks to the use of electronically controlled high temperature (up to 400 ° C) accompanied by pneumatic pressure.
The operating pressure for the welding rods is also electronically controlled and limited.
The solid steel construction is very durable. It resists pressure fluctuations that occur when the pneumatic component comes into contact with the upper and corresponding lower welding rod.
The low profile allows easy loading of heavy PTFE materials, while the pressing / welding system allows the creation of strong and continuous welds over the entire welded area.
The lower and upper welding rods are independently controlled by microprocessors, which allows precise temperature distribution on both welding surfaces with a maximum deviation of ± 1%.
PTFE BR10 welding machines are available in different sizes and for different purposes.
It works in a two-step positioning mode, which allows precise positioning of the material and the creation of a straight weld, which prevents irregular, intermittent welding.
The welding rod usually has a size of 100 x 1,000 mm, but it can be adjusted according to the client's requirements. Special engraved electrodes are also available.
