Today, the high-precision laser welding process is increasingly used as an alternative to ultrasonic and high-frequency welding of plastics.
A prerequisite is the reliable and economical application of a complex additive. In the past, there was no industrial solution for this. Together with partners, REA JET has developed a highly interesting digital printing process using REA JET Clearweld Primer for automation.
Classically transparent plastics, such as PE, PP, PC, PS, SAN have naturally only a limited laser absorption capacity, making plastic welding impossible or very difficult. With the REA JET solution, transparent and laser-transparent plastic materials can be prepared with the REA JET Clearweld Primer, which has a high specific laser energy, so that they can be welded with lasers. Injection-molded plastic parts as well as non-woven fabrics can also be welded with this solution.
REA JET Clearweld Primer Systems can be integrated into automated manufacturing processes.
The REA JET primers can be used for the entire range of plastic materials.
The contrast of REA JET primers can be adjusted very precisely and very reproducibly. The parameters for printing are continuously monitored by the system and can be adjusted online.
An optimal and uniform primer contrast can be achieved and maintained. This ensures optimum weldability and optimum efficiency of the process.
The REA JET Clearweld Primer System is the innovative and professional application solution for the plastics processing industry for digital printing of high-quality welding additives! REA offers the REA JET Clearweld Primer System, supports process integrators and takes over the installation and maintenance of the systems through its worldwide distributor network.
REA has established an exclusive partnership with TechnoScriptum based on digital printing with primers for plastic welding. Dr.-Ing- Rolf Klein of TechnoScriptum is a recognized consultant and expert in the plastics industry and in the field of laser welding processes in Germany and Europe.
The cooperation between REA and TechnoScriptum also includes the exclusive cooperation with the US American company Crysta-Lyn, a supplier of special chemicals for the plastics industry and other branches of industry.
These cooperations combine the specific process know-how of Crysta-Lyn and TechnoSciptum with regard to the laser welding process with the installation and support competence of REA and a strong international sales network.
The advantage for customers and integrators is a new complete solution suitable for industrial use.
