Wire and Snap Connector Electrodes. The machine feeds two (2) layers of materials which are joined into a Laminate. Vibratory feeder bowls teed snaps into multiple snap insertion heads, in the computer controller designated field pattern. The top layer, with snaps installed, laminates with the bottom layer. The scrap from both reels of raw materials is reeled onto their individual rewind spools. The wire contact electrodes are produced without the snap buttons, the hydraulic die station, cuts the various patterns into the top layer, leaving the bottom backing intact. Next, in the indexing feed system and into the hydraulic “pressing” Station, to compress the materials. The last station cuts the material into sheets and drops them onto the exit conveyor. The materials are controlled by automatic web guides.
PART CONFIGURATIONS – There can be an infinite variety of patches, merely by changing the cutting dies and the cutoff die
REELS – All four Reelers (2 de-reelers and 2 re-reelers) are motor driven with loop controls. The large reel under the machine Is on a trolley that rolls Out the side of the machine for ease of reloading.
CYCLE RATE – 4 to 10 seconds per row of electrodes.
MACHINE CONTROL – Solid state PLC and ISA Computer control with a combination of oil tight push buttons and keyboard keys for operator input. Status, diagnostic and process control information is presented to the operator on a CRT screen.
Machine No. 5116
Automatically feeds three separate reels of materials through the machine and are joined/combined into a laminate. One layer is the electrode material, next is one or more strips of reeled paper and the third is the plastic and adhesive overlay The plastic material is power dereeled and runs through the “corona” treatment station, feeds the large power driven drum where it is automatically coated with the adhesive from the hot melt dispensing system and then it joins up with the variable number of paper strips and the electrode material, which are both fed from their own dereeler systems. The laminate returns under the large drum and is power reeled into a roll of finished material. The materials throughout the process are controlled by automatic web guides.
PART CONFIGURATIONS – Roll of laminated electrode material.
REELS – All four reelers (3 dereelers, 1 rereeler) are motor driven.
CYCLE RATE – 20 to 30 feet per minute.
RELATED EQUIPMENT – Machine Model 5075 Wire and Snap Electrode Laminating Machine is the companion machine that utilizes this raw material.
