Press Release Summary:
Plugging into 120 V outlet and heating up in 1 minute, Model 8050 Infrared Non-Contact Fusion Plastic Welding System enables very intricate plastic components to bond with cooler, safer, non-contact welds. IR heating arrays can be designed to join similar or two dissimilar plastic materials with differentiating melting points. Since parts never come in contact with infrared array, material buildup is eliminated and need for press ventilation systems is diminished.

Trinetics Group Introduces New 8050 Infrared Plastic Bench Welder
Trinetics Group brings a new affordable and compact Infrared Plastic Bench Welder to Market, and has many advantages over hot platen plastic welding processes.
The Trinetics new model 8050 Infrared Non-Contact Fusion Plastic Welding System is a breakthrough in size, cost and efficiency over larger floor model systems.
The directed I/R system expands the capabilities of thermoplastic welding by enabling very intricate plastic components to bond with cooler, safer and energy-efficient non-contact welds. Its IR heating arrays can be designed to join similar or two dissimilar plastic materials with differentiating melting points. A hot plate takes hours to heat up, constantly the operator needs to clean the hot plate and they take a large amount of energy to run. The 8050 Bench Infrared Welder can be plugged into a normal 120V outlet, heats up in 1 minute and the array does not need to be cleaned.
In directed infrared fusion welding the parts being welded never come in contact with the infrared array, as they do with the hot platen in standard thermoplastic welding. This eliminates material buildup on the welding arrays, which diminishes requirements for press ventilation systems, as well as reducing joint consumption and flashing, maintenance and downtime. This technology allows the use of short heat cycle times and has many advantages over hot platen processes, according to Mike Munnings, the president of Trinetics Group.
