Automatic Pleating and Hot Melt Application Machine


This machine automatically scores, applies hot melt and sets pleats while retaining pleat spacing during cooling. The hot melt has two purposes: 1) retains pleat spacing for maxi-air flow surface and 2) seals end of pleats for ease of subsequent handling operations and sealing in its container. The pleated filter is ideally suited for rectangular and round filters due to the live hinge, created by the hot melt Equipment is designed for fast pleating, through a continuous smooth and positive movement and is capable of pleating medias like High Efficiency Particular Air Filter (HEPA) and other less delicate medias.
PLEATING CAPABILITIES – This pleater uses interchangeable modules that may be exchanged to obtain a large number of combinations of pleat width, pleat height and spacing. This means that different filters can be made on the same basic machine. The following filter sizes may be made:
1) Pleat Height .50 inches to 2.00 inches
2) Pleat Width: 2.00 inches to 12.00 inches
3) Pleat Spacing: .100 inches to .500 inches
The machine is designed with sliding modules so that the roller and screw assemblies may be exchanged without affecting the timing or adjustment of the machine.
The drive train has the power available to operate multiple transport screws to move filters wider than 4 inches.
For other filter sizes, special tooling may be designed.
DISCHARGE – Is suitable for further automation.
CYCLE RATE – Machine variable in speed from 0 to 75,000 per hour.
HOT MELT DISPENSER – Capacity – 20 to 40 pounds
per hour (as required). Dispensers – two, three or four (as required).
The unit contains a premelt heater and thermostat, hose heaters and thermostats. The unit also has its own control panel and master switch.
OPTIONAL -Automatic pleated media cut to length system.
