Spec High Speed Overlap Welder

With a faster drive motor and a unique pre-heat roller system, the Spec High Speed Welder can increase your production output. As a 240V unit and providing an overlap style weld finish, choose from three different hot wedges and preheat roller frames to match the thickness of thermoplastic to be bonded. For example, match lightweight material with the 1000W wedge and 2 roller preheat frame or medium weight material with a 1500W wedge and 4 roller preheat frame. Thick coated textiles are best welded with the 2000W wedge and 6 roller preheat frame for optimum speeds. Intended for in-house welding fabrication of various thermoplastics including PVC, PE, PU, PP & LLDPE.

Description

  • Single Function Welders at an Affordable Price

    The Spec Wedge Welders were designed using the existing technology of our successful line of Triad Wedge Welders. The Spec line is a line made up of single function welders to perform Overlap welds, Hem Cord welds, Flat Hem welds, Acrylic welding, Thick Material or High-speed welds. This allows the customer to dedicate a Spec Welder for a specific welding function without changing out attachments at an affordable price.

    The Spec maintains a noiseless and smokeless operation, a patented Self-centering Wedge and a new Swing-out Wedge feature for easy cleaning, inspection and service. The Spec welders also utilize our same unique self-guiding Track System for hands-free welding. Our exclusive guide systems for the Spec Welders are back and forth and right and left. In addition, the Spec offers right and left hand feed units (mirror image) for simultaneous welding or hemming of sheets, flags, banners, etc. There are no other automatic welders in the world that offer the versatility that the Spec Wedge Welders offer. All welders are available in 110V or 220V.

    What is a Wedge?

    The Wedge is a solid piece of Aluminum shaped like a Wedge with two or more Cartridge Heaters inserted into it as the heat source. The Hot Wedge thermo bonds your material by contact. The material makes contact on the top and bottom of the wedge, heating the material, then enters directly into the pressure rollers to produce your bond.

Benefits

  • Spec Features
    The Spec can be used as a stationary unit for short welds, or an automatic welder for long seams where the Spec moves down the material.

    Patented Self Centering Wedge
    The wedge will self center with change in material thickness automatically, or it can be manually adjusted for welding two different thickness of material.

     

    Additional Benefits

    Smokeless and Noiseless Operation
    Because it's a wedge, the Spec will not produce any hazardous smoke during the welding process as hot air welders do. The Spec is noiseless, for a more pleasant working environment.

    Increase Productivity
    The Spec is fast! It can weld 12 to 14 oz. material at approximately 20 feet per minute.

    Reduce Labor Costs
    By utilizing the Spec's built in Tracking System and available tracks, the Spec can be run with only one operator. No steering necessary for the operator.

    Easy Access
    Wedge swings out for easy service and cleaning. It also has an open work area for easy visibility.

Accessories

  • Spec Track System

    Tracking System 

    Pre Fabricated 5' Track Sections are ideal for long runs, material handling and reducing operator error. By using the Track, the operator does not have to worry about steering the Spec, just position the material with magnets provided for the proper overlap and let the Spec weld down the Track, a great labor saver. Track System can be portable or stationary.

     

    5' Track System w/Connector

    #33-500: 5' (1.5m) Section Includes: 20 gauge, galvanized steel section, track connector, hardware and magnets. The Track System can be permanently mounted or left portable for space savings.

  • Carriage for Curve Welding

    Carriage for Curve Welding

    #33-097: For both the Triad and Spec Welders, the Carriage for Curve Welding Attachment provides an easy means for turning to the right or left guiding the welder along a curved edge.

  • Thermal Bonding Tape

    Thermal Bonding Tape

    Our exclusive Thermal Bonding Tape insures quality welds for a waterproof seal, flatter seams for retractable systems, no needle holes, and seam strength stronger than the material in the pull tension directions.  We also now offer the Uniseam FR Tape for seaming fire resistant, acrylic fabrics.  This tape is unique in that it is specially formulated to insure a strong bond with fire resistant acrylics.
