The Model 1093 Heat Seal Press
is an air operated press that is used to laminate Heat Seal Connectors (HSC) to LCD's, PC boards or similar components. Some benefits of HSC's are cost reduction, mechanical versatility, vibration and shock resistance, and improved interconnect quality in your assembly. HSC's are attached by applying both heat and pressure. The Model 1093 utilizes a constant heat thermode as opposed to pulse heat equipment and as a result has shorter cycle times since it does not require changes in the bonding head temperature during the bonding cycle.

Description and Specifications:
Heat Source: Heat is provided by a 3" long, 400 watt cartridge heater that is surrounded by a precision machined bonding head. (Custom heater and bonding heads are available.)
Pressure: Bond force is applied by a 1 ½" bore air cylinder that is regulated from the front panel Cycle control: The bonding cycle is controlled by an internal microprocessor based instrument. The controller provides several functions:
1. Temperature control and display.
2. Cycle time control and display.
3. External thermocouple display (used in the initial setup and temperature profiling of new assemblies)
