Horizontal Hydraulic Hot Plate Welder

The HH-1232 is a horizontal heat platen orientation, hydraulic motion controlled hot plate welding system capable of welding parts up to 12” x 32” (305mm x 813mm) or multiple smaller parts. Customized variants of this model are available.
When compared to vertical platen systems, horizontal systems typically: Are much better suited for part designs where internal components are loose inside one part half prior to welding. Allow easier loading of both part halves together into lower tool (requires part-part alignment features) using automatic pick-up of upper part half by upper tool. Allow the option of loading and unloading parts outside the machine (using optional power or manual lower tool carriage/drawer and automatic pick-up of upper part half).
