Vulcanizing Presses

Falcon
- Series IV Belt Splicing Press

The Falcon (Series IV) splicing press has evolved from its original design into the most advanced, reliable and easy to use press on the market. Constructed from light weight high tensile strength aluminium. The Falcon vulcanizing press is designed to be robust and give maximum performance. Utilizing a single air-bag or water-bag it gives the most even pressure distribution across the entire platen surface. Its thin platen construction allows for maximum flexibility to contour to the shape of the conveyor belt and provide accurate vulcanization. The only portable splicing press which is built in Australia, using high grade Australian aluminium and all locally available components. This results in reduced down time when replacing components or carrying out any maintenance.

Control The control box incorporates circuit breakers and digital temperature controllers. The power of "FUZZY LOGIC" means the press will think for itself to give the most accurate temperature performance. The "Brain Child" controller will self adjust all parameters to give optimum temperature maintenance (with no overshoot) and minimize warm-up time. These robust solid state units give unparalleled performance and reliability. Should maintenance ever be required they can slide out, and a new one can slide in to get you back into production in seconds. Single or three phase control boxes are available.

Vulcanizing Presses
Falcon
- Construction

The beam design has been made to epitomize the strength and weight in specific steps to avoid mistakes on site through incorrect setting up. The beams are placed every 200mm down the splice length, and are in contact with one another. This ensures beams will always be placed correctly, and that no placement template is required. Safety A chain holding system is supplied as standard for the ultimate fail-safe system as a final safeguard for users. Quality It is engineered to perform well within its operational range which results in less stress fatigue and long service life. A superior product at a very competitive price. All presses undergo a thorough factory Q.A. and test procedure, to monitor all aspects of press performance. A data log unit can also be incorporated to give a full splice report printout if required for quality control and reporting purposes. Warrantee 12 months warrantee on parts and workmanship issued as standard.

Silicon Rubber Mats Resistor heater mats are now of standard silicon rubber construction. Power ratings and material thermodynamics have been modelled to give uniform temperature across the entire splice area of +/- 3deg. C. Water Cooling Water cooling in the platens is standard on all Falcon vulcanizing presses. Inlet and outlet plugs are provided on each side of the platen with an internal cooling coil. The integrated cooling system is resin packed to ensure maximum contact area and therefore minimal cooling time. Plug Locking System A uniquely designed plug locking system ensures protection of electrical components, and that power supply will not be interrupted. External plugs are used to ensure a continuous heat distribution across the entire platen area, and that no cold spots form as a result of recessed electrical connections. Boxbeam Sections The unique box beam design means the traverse beams will be much more stable, and not collapse under pressure. When assembled the beams touch against one another, giving a continuous flat surface against the air-bag (water-bag), thereby ensuring no pressure plate is required. PRESS HIRE:

The Falcon Vulcanizing press is available for hire anywhere in Australia on a long or short term basis (one day, one week or one year). Should you wish to purchase your press at a later stage, half your rental costs will be discounted off the price. Allowing you to try before you buy.

Falcon
- Design Detail

Components and Interchangeable Parts


Beams Interlocking side extrusions are bolted together to give a robust box section beam, which can withstand up to 200 p.s.i. Can be used in any orientation thereby lessening fatigue, and its universal design makes it interchangeable with other market brands.

Air / Water Bags All our Vulcanizing presses employ the pressurizing system whereby water or air is pumped into a reinforced rubber bladder (commonly called an air-bag). As the bag fills, pressure is then applied to the vulcanizing platens of the press.

Water cooling Falcons system as standard construction on all models. Can be cooled using air or water to minimize the splice cycle times.

Platens Manufactured from aluminium to highest standards with built in thermal controls.

Bolts Steel square nuts with large thread contact for superior holding. Steel hollow bar, left and right hand butruss thread for strength and easy adjustment.

Vulcanizing Presses
Falcon
- Specification Details

Falcon presses are built within high safety margins using the latest stress analysis software and thermodynamic modeling. The ultimate in portability is achieved using high strength lightweight aluminium. Standard press dimensions are in units of 200mm increments along the length or the width of the platen. The diagram below shows the typical detail analysis which goes into the design and construction of each vulcanizing press. When selecting a press for your particular application, the following can be used as a guide for determining the platen length (A) and platen width (B), as shown on the diagram on the right. A The platen length (A) is determined by adding the following amounts to the manufacturers recommended splice length: 6 inches (150mm) for fabric belt. 14 inches (355mm) for steelcord belt.

D Belt width A

Platen

A = Length of platen along the belt B = Width of platen across the belt on the bias C = Right angle dimension across the belt, plus edge overlap. D = Bias angle.

B The width of platen, or dimension B (along the bias), is determined by taking the belt width and adding: 6 inches (150mm) for fabric belt. 14 inches (200mm) for steelcord belt.

To this figure multiply by: 1.05 for 16 deg bias angle 1.07 for 22 deg bias angle 1.117 for 26.5 deg bias angle.
