Uponor devices for automated welding processes
The German-made Hürner is a reliable and robust automatic electrofusion machine. It can weld all kinds of commercial fittings, ranging from the smallest sizes all the way up to 1,200 mm. The machine can register the welder's identity, what they welded, when and how they welded it, and the Hürner HST 300 Print + GPS can even determine where it happened–the coordinates of the welded joints are logged to a high level of precision. Outside temperatures are not an obstacle: the Hürner welding machine can operate at temperatures as low as -20°C.
PT butt welding machines
Hydraulically operated PT butt welding machines are for pipes and connections made from PE, PP, PVDF, and other thermoplastics. The machines have benefited from the company's decades of experience in plastics welding and the demands of their knowledgeable clientele. The PT machine series is designed specifically for field work. The hydraulically operated machines can also be equipped with a separate SDS reporting unit that stores all the information obtained from the welding work.
Automatic ABF butt welding machines
ABF butt welding machines are suitable for pipes made from PE, PP, PVDF and other thermoplastics. ABF machines follow an automated welding process. The entire welding process and the necessary welding parameters have been stored in the machine's memory. The user monitors the machine and acts in accordance with its instructions. The automatic control system monitors the work, and if the next action in the program is not executed, the machine interrupts the welding process. All procedures and welding parameters also get stored in the machine's memory, which can in turn be printed on paper or into a file. ProShop rental
A ProShop rental includes all equipment needed for welding. In addition to the welding machines and devices, the program is able to provide welding services in electrofusion, butt welding, and extrusion welding. Our rental devices and equipment are always well maintained and in proper working order. Customised long-term contracts can be negotiated as necessary. Contracts can also be expanded to include welding services or eventual training in addition to machines and devices.
Certified plastic pipe welders
Why does it make sense to train welders?
- The welding of plastic pipes requires specific expertise
- Leaky connections are the most common flaws in plastic pipe systems
- The prevention of connection leaks requires proper training and the right attitude
- Joint failure can cause thousands, even hundreds of thousands of euros worth of damage.
- A well-trained plastic pipe welder knows how to avoid the most common installation errors
- Certified welders are the hallmark of any company dedicated to high quality and skilful work
- A list of certified welders and companies is available from Inspecta Certification.
In cooperation with the industry's key business and educational organizations, the Finnish Plastics Industries Federation and Inspecta Certification have developed a quality control system for plastic pipe welding.
