WIDOS 5000 WM (OD 160 to OD 500mm)

by Widos

OD 160 up to OD 500 mm | PE, PP, PVDF | butt welding | manual

You are looking for a heating element butt welding machine for the workshop and for the economic fabrication of pipes and fittings e.g. bends, T- and cross-pieces from OD 160 up to OD 500? Then the WIDOS 5000 WM is the right machine for you.

The WIDOS 5000 WM is a manual machine for the heating element butt welding of PE , PP and PVDF pipes and fittings from OD 160 up to OD 500. The machine is designed for the fabrication of high quality fittings e.g. bends, T-pieces 90°, T-pieces 45° and cross-pieces in the workshop. The table drive enables steady running precisely controllable and high forces and is ideally designed to meet the needs of the plastics processing. With special clamping tools, the welding of special components, such as corrugated pipes and insulating pipes and non-standard pipes, is possible. The complete machine base (base frame) is designed as solid and torsion-free steel welding construction. The operation of the machine, the heating element and the planer is done via control panel, which is firmly connected to the basic machine with a single line. The console may be equipped as entirely manual version with optional weld log recording, as simple WIDOS SPA 600. Starting with the weld log recording all data is registered onto SD card as electronic data log. The data log contains all relevant nominal and current values of the welding as well as a possible error code upon parameter discrepancies.

The WIDOS 5000 WM is for the heating element butt welding of PE, PP and PVDF pipes and fittings from OD 160 up to OD 500. The heating element is designed as an ideally even heating plate with integrated heating cartridges and high quality anti-stick coating. The cartridge technology makes it easy to replace individual elements in case of breakdown by the cartridge technology without losing the entire plate. The heating element can be regulated in different zones depending on the size and thus has an ideal temperature distribution to the surface. The heating element is driven between the machine tables on precise linear guidings by a pneumatic drive. This allows a very accurate positioning upon simultaneously very high accelerations and fast motions and very smooth stopping in the final positions. This is of great importance in meeting the shortest possible changeover times. The planer is driven between the machine tables and locked into the working position on a precise linear guide by a pneumatic drive. Therefore a very precise positioning can be carried out.
