SealLoad 3100: Precise Weather Seal Loading Station

Press release date: Dec 01, 2013

The new SealLoad 3100 seal loading station applies weather seals to wire ends automatically. This new machine features a novel seal feeding system, excellent quality and repeatability, significantly higher productivity, increased user-friendliness, low energy consumption, and a new design.

The field proven components of the SLU 3000 (previous model) have been combined with new technologies. The new SealLoad 3100 seal loading station reaches the highest level of productivity and precision. Efficient processing requires quick, trouble-free conveyance of the seals. The new belt conveyor carefully conveys the seals from the storage container quickly and reliably. The seal storage volume is now twice as large compared to the SLU 3000, enabling longer intervals between fillings. The new SealKit has a transparent storage container and can be equipped with the optional Seal Level Monitor.

Compared to its predecessor, the SealLoad 3100 has been optimized and equipped with a broader range of capabilities to apply longer, wider, and smaller seals at higher production rates. The total cycle time of the new SL 3100 has been reduced by 27% and the changeover time by 25%.

An optional adapter enables the customer to use existing seal kits from third party suppliers, minimizing their investment for new production equipment. Using the setup gauge, the AdapterKit and the existing 3rd party feed track can be prepared in advance outside of the production machine. This ensures that there are no interruptions in production and leaves the feed tracks unmodified so they can still be used with their original third party supplier machines at any time. This feature provides great flexibility that translates into higher efficiency. The SealLoad 3100 is fully integrated into the Schleuniger CrimpCenter family. The design of the SealLoad 3100 is optimized for the CrimpCenter and requires minimal space due to its narrow design.

With complete software integration into the CrimpCenter EASY interface, the user can set up and control the SealLoad 3100 directly from CrimpCenter user interface. Error messages and assistance are presented in the information window and are easy to understand. A complete diagnostics tool enables the technician to control every aspect of the SealLoad 3100 including monitoring and testing of all input and output signals.

Customer Benefits:
• Full integration with the CrimpCenter family
• Quick & precise seal loading
• Energy efficient & careful conveyance of the seal
• Short changeover times
• Easy replacement of the SealKits
