Main features

Custom tools, infinite applications

With its multiple welding technologies SM-216-SA can bond an infinite range of specialty fabrics. Operators can choose from a variety of accessories to make overlaps, hems, pockets, pockets-with-rope or cable, or apply zippers, keders, extruded profiles, omega-profiles or reinforcing straps. Guides, welding wheels and other tools are tailor-made according to your production requirements and allow you to fully customize the finished products you create.

Superior seams

The patented Intelligent Torque technology and the floating welding wheels ensure that seams made with SM-216-SA are of unparalleled quality, both aesthetically and in strength. SM-216-SA is a must-have to create unique, highly professional products.

Solid modular structure

Its solid structure makes the machine suitable for the most challenging welding work. All machine components are in solid steel and aluminum. Top of the bill electronic and pneumatic components and precision welding tools and accessories make this machine the best available on the market. SM-216-SA has a standard usable length of 6,0 meters. Extension modules of 2,0 m each make the machine as long as required. To weld XXL panels, the machine is available in a version with increased work surface (SM-210-SA).

Total speed and motion control

Motion is generated by steel rack-and-pinion transmission and multiple heavy duty chrome plated rails for optimal speed and control. Whether you make overlaps, hems or pockets or apply omega or other profiles, SM-216-SA will deliver the quality you expect.

Welding menus

A series of specific parameters can be chosen from the touch screen to create the ideal setting for every type of fabric or application. Multiple operational menus can be stored in the machine’s computer. Each menu can be given a specific name so that the operator only has to choose the menu most suitable for the fabric or application at hand and the machine will set the parameters by itself, allowing even unskilled operators to create superior products with this highly professional digital welder.

Floating welding wheels

The welding wheels have to exert exactly the right pressure. If the pressure is too high, the seam will show the imprint of the wheels. If the pressure is not high enough, the weld will lack in strength. The SMRE welders install floating wheels whereby the pressure is determined pneumatically, not mechanically. By adjusting the pneumatic pressure, the upper wheel will “float” over the seam, and exert exactly the same pressure on the fabric during the whole cycle, even when the wheel encounters an overlap or other obstacles in the fabric.

Automatic continuous welding cycles

The fabric is spread and clamped on the worktop. All the operator has to do is choose the right menu for the application at hand and push the START button. The Intelligent Torque technology pulls the fabric under exactly the right tension. The welding head travels the full length of the fabric until the clamps open at the end of the cycle and the product is ready.
