SM-450-TA

DIGITAL WELDING STATION FOR MULTIPLE ROLLS

STREAMLINE YOUR PRODUCTION OPTIMIZE YOUR PROFITS

After more than a decade of experience with heavy duty welding of flexible PVC and other thermoplastics in wide range of industries SMRE introduced SM-450-SA.

SM-450-SA stems from the symbiosis of superior control systems, a very robust machine structure and components, and precision mechanics. Developed for the continuous production of flexible PVC panels of infinite length, this machine will streamline your production processes and deliver exceptional productivity, outstanding efficiency and high quality overlap seams, pockets, and rope-in-pockets.

Its highly flexible design allows to construct the machine with or without a conveyor belt. An optional CAD/CAM bridge can be installed featuring a twin laser head to fly-cut symmetrical patterns out of the just created XXL panel. With its capacity to process single or multiple fabric rolls, its industrial welding tools and accessories, and a series of specifically developed software programs, SM-450-SA is an industrial fabric welding solution unlike any other on the market.

UNCOMPROMISING QUALITY

HIGHLY PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTS

SM-450-SA enables manufacturers in a wide range of industries to create very large panels of superior quality. Stadium covers, tents, tarpaulins, swimming pool covers – these products can be created on a machine with a footprint frame that is infinitely smaller than the finished product.

Here are some of the products that SM-450-SA can make:

Main features

SM-450-SA was specifically developed to process heavy rolls of PVC. All its features – tools, accessories and software solutions – are created just for that: to weld and cut PVC in a continuous cycle and create highly professional products in a very limited space.
The machine installs multiple welding tools and simultaneously carries out several welding jobs, allowing for an enormous reduction in manufacturing time.
Specifically designed for heavy duty welding jobs, its solid industrial structure makes SM-450-SA suitable for the most challenging work. The sturdy, multiple layer, heat resistant conveyor belt allows the creation of panels of infinite length. Its cleverly designed tools and accessories complete the machine and make it a highly efficient industrial welding solution.
Whether you bond a single or multiple fabric rolls, whether you make continuous overlap seams or apply keders, or create a pocket or a hem, SMRE can build the structure, the tools, and the accessories to fit your specific production requirements and allow you to create the end products you desire.
SM-450-SA is available with a heat resistant conveyor belt that allows a total control of the material while it is being fed into the machine, guaranteeing seams of the highest quality.
SM-450-SA works in full automatic, continuous cycles. The computerized unwinders with edge control and digitally controlled dancer systems for automatic tension management feed the fabric into the machine. SM-450-SA then creates the desired seams (overlap, pocket, hem, rope-in-pocket, or the applications of a keder) and makes the cross cut when the programmed length has been reached.
Only one operator is needed to supervise the machine during the welding cycles. Instead of needing multiple operators for a multitude of welding and cutting jobs, SM-450-SA carries out all steps in the process automatically and continuously.
With its full automatic welding cycles, the machine ensures an enormous production output and will reduce the necessary man power to an absolute minimum.
With its continuous material feeding operation the machine allows for the creation of very large panels in a very limited space.
A variety of precision tools and accessories were specifically designed to deliver quality seams and extreme precision. With their clever industrial design, tools can be installed individually or simultaneously, in any combination, providing an enormous variety of seams on a wide range of fabrics.
The smooth, digitally controlled fabric feed and the patented Intelligent Torque technology on the welding wheels ensure a superior welding quality during the welding cycle.

Hot air welding head for overlaps

Hot air welding head for overlaps

Designed for the creation of quality overlap seams of various widths on PVC panels. The Intelligent Torque technology allows a perfectly flat welds of unparalleled quality. Precision and strength of the seams are guaranteed.
Hot air welding head for keder, pocket, or rope-in-pocket applications

Hot air welding head for keder, pocket, or rope-in-pocket applications

Fold the fabric and automatically create a hem or pocket, a rope-in-pocket, or apply a keder to the edge of the panels. The motorized welding wheels and specifically designed guides keep the fabric under control at all times during the welding cycle, and ensure seams of the highest quality.
Double welding heads to apply eyelet straps

Double welding heads to apply eyelet straps

These very large welding tools feature a twin heating system with double air output and are designed to apply a wide strap with eyelets to large fabric panels. Welding wheels are motorized for total fabric control and perfectly flat, extremely strong seams.
Motorized unwinding system

Motorized unwinding system

This system automatically feeds the fabric into the machine at a programmable speed, perfectly synchronized with the pulling speed of the machine. Avoids the fabric from stretching during the pull, which would compromise the precision of the finished product. Features digital edge control with twin sensors that read the exact position of the fabric and – if necessary – automatically correct the position of the roll. Features automatic tension control with digitally controlled dancer systems for a very smooth fabric feed. According to your production requirements, SM-450-SA can be equipped with a single or with a multiple unwinding systems.
Multiple layer heat resistant conveyor belt for total fabric control

Multiple layer heat resistant conveyor belt for total fabric control

The optional heat resistant conveyor belt and powerful vacuum turbine installed under the machine ensure total fabric control and a perfect, split-second synchronization of the fabric movement and start-and-stop of the welding heads, allowing SM-450-SA to create seams without burning marks even on very light colored fabrics.
Twin laser heads for symmetrical fly-cuts

Twin laser heads for symmetrical fly-cuts

These hi-tech cutting tools are installed on a travelling bridge that follows while it is being fed into the machine. The twin laser heads are able to fly-cut symmetrical CAD/CAM patterns without interrupting the welding cycle, and guarantee an exceptional production output.

Software solutions

CAD/CAM

SM-450-SA is managed with an easy-to-use software that is operated from a touch screen control panel. When the optional twin laser cutting heads are installed, a CAD/CAM program allows the machine to import and read CAD drawings of the finished product and translate the drawings into welding and cutting jobs. To further automate the production cycle, an optional barcode reading system is available that avoids unskilled operators from having to program the machine. All the operator has to do is point the gun at the barcode, place the material on the conveyor belt, check the correct positioning of the tools, and push the START button.
