Infrared welding is a complex process that requires a delicate balance of multiple machine capabilities. At HA Industries, infrared welding is just as much an art as it is science.

To start, infrared welding utilizes quartz infrared emitters to provide a non-contact, no-mess solution. It is highly effective and efficient for joining plastic components in the automotive, appliance and specialty markets, to name a few. The next key feature is control. HA Industries infrared welders utilize phase-angle power controllers for precise adjustment of the infrared emitters. From the HMI, the user is able to change infrared emitter zone settings by monitoring voltage and time. These controllers are optimized for infrared heating and reduce flickering, unlike the competition, and they protect the process and minimize EMC emission levels. Unique to HA Industries is our heater failure detection. Each emitter is monitored individually so maintenance can quickly locate a failed infrared emitter. All current HA Industries infrared welders utilize servo-controlled motions. This smooth automation provides us with precise control and adjustment for tool tuning.

The HA Industries HS6000 Infrared welder is horizontally orientated and capable of assembling a 60 x 30 inch part. This could include dash panels, air ducts, trim pieces, door panels, etc. As with a majority of our equipment, the HS6000 can accommodate interchangeable tooling to provide lasting value for your evolving components.

At HA Industries, assembly equipment for automotive grilles, and more specifically truck grilles, have become a bit of a specialty, if not an expertise of ours. We have worked with multiple tier-one manufacturers providing machinery for everything from low to high volume production. Our equipment has been instrumental for all the major manufacturers such as Ford, Chevrolet, GMC, Ram, Toyota and Nissan, to name a few.

Automotive grilles can invoke multiple assembly technologies:

· Screw-driving

· Clip Driving

· Snap Insertion and Detection

· Hot-Air Cold Staking

· Ultrasonic Welding

· Etc.

One particular piece of equipment that has been instrumental in automotive grille assembly, and also fully designed and developed by HA Industries, has been the HA-ModXL. This machinery allows for multiple tooling packages to be ran in one capital equipment purchase. This is ideal when you have multiple low volume assemblies and all you must do is change out the tool cart, which averages to take only 30 minutes or less. The other scenario is during model-year change overs. The only new purchase you need to make is for a new tool cart. The HA-ModXL is built to last well into the future with many years of service. See our flyer below to learn more about the HA-ModXL.
