Thermal Press with Advanced Motion Control
Thermal Press machines with fully integrated Servo Actuators and Load Cells deliver the highest accuracy for your assembly projects and processes using our new force process mode of operation.
This advanced process motion control method allows for the most precise servo motion using force monitoring capabilities for your most demanding assembly requirements. Thermal Press machines feature..
Using heat staking thermal presses for plastic assembly systems provides a flexible and efficient platform of tools. A good example of this was when Thermal Press assisted a medical device manufacturer to implement a complete hot staking solution for their plastic implants.
The basic process wasn’t particularly complex – it involved contact
deformation of base parts using thermal manipulation. However, the devices used
to create these types of assemblies need precise control features and exact
thermal delivery systems.
Plastics are the most commonly used chemical compound in human life and have become an integral part of our day to day life. It has become a part of our world due to its versatility and cost-effectiveness. The global reinforced plastics market is anticipated to reach $16 billion by the end of 2019. Though extensive research and new technologies have led to invent of newer and safer plastics, drawbacks and challenges of plastics have never been resolved and the world is beginning to witness its negative impacts today. Energy efficient ways of developing smarter plastics and research..
Globally, enterprises use plastic material in their products to achieve the desired weight, increased durability, and more importantly, reduced manufacturing cost. However, many of them still use traditional thermal assembly machines, which are time-consuming, costly, and inefficient. Worse, they need a quality checker on the assembly line to inspect the goods manually. California-based Thermal Press International not only designs and builds thermal assembly machines but also helps its clients conceptualize, design, and develop products. The company’s high- end machines with customized tooling packages cater to the needs of manufacturers who are looking for a just-in-time quality control..
Durability is of chief importance to auto component manufacturers.
When engaged in high-volume production of taillights for consumer automobiles, manufacturers need to engineer the process to minimize the chance of accidentally damaging delicate inner components. This is especially true when building taillights, where the two leading welding methods produce less-than-ideal results from a quality control perspective.
Auto manufacturers have tried using many different welding processes over the decades – General Motors famously adopted ultrasonic welding in the 1970s, but gave up on the process when new technology made better, more consistent results possible.
Now, most automakers and component manufacturers rely on..
Thermal Plastic Assembly Equipment Manufacturing Company Announces Major Expansion in Livermore, CA Facility
Thermal Press International Expands Heat Staking and Heat Sealing Manufacturing Facility by 50%
For Immediate Release:
October 2016 (Livermore, CA) Fast growing plastic assembly equipment manufacturer Thermal Press International (TPI) announces the expansion of the plant footprint from 8,000 square ft. to 12,000 square ft.
“We’re really jammed on space and had outgrown our current plant. As we continue to grow, we needed the additional space to support the needs of increasing demand for our labor saving and high quality plastic assembly equipment” said Ian McLean, President..
