Induction cap sealing Benefits
Meets tight production tolerances with precise localized heat to small areas creating pinpoint accuracy
Increases production rates with faster heating cycles
Reduces defect rates with repeatable, reliable heat
Eliminates variability from operator-to-operator, shift-to-shift
Maintains metallurgical characteristics of the individual metals
To heat one aluminum cap seal on a plastic jug for a cap sealing application. The client is replacing past systems that no longer work for their process.
It was confirmed that the aluminum heated sufficiently to create a bond between the foil and the bottle, meeting the client’s objective.
Induction delivers the same result time after time, making it ideal for this high-volume manufacturing process. The space-efficient 45 kW EKOHEAT fits nicely into the client's floor plan.
An EASYHEAT and a workhead required a minimal footprint, saving the client floor space.
Induction heating enabled the aluminum to seal to the plastic cap quickly without the cap being damaged. The customer desired a quick rate which would make in-sourcing the process worthwhile, and induction heating exceeded the targeted production rate thanks to its fast heating.
Customer currently has Ambrell equipment and would like to increase their run rate.
Coil design can be incorporated to fit a wide range of production setups. Hands-free heating, involves no operator skill for manufacturing and directly heats only perimeter of foil.
Power is applied directly to the foil; no energy is wasted heating the cap or the surrounding air or parts.
A three-turn two-position helical coil is used to heat the aluminum foil in a tunnel style assembly. Product (containers) passes easily under the induction coil.
