Tarp welding machines – a key element in tarpaulin and cover production

What are the heat welding machines used for the production of tarpaulins?

Tarpaulins are versatile and useful products used in various industries. To produce or assemble them into larger structures, it is necessary to use appropriate tools. Heat sealing and welding machines are a great way to join materials quickly and efficiently. In this article, we’ll talk about what you can join with a heat welding machine, how to connect two tarpaulins, what welding machines do, and which one is good for making tarpaulin and sun cover products.

The most common types of tarp welding machines are:

  • Impulse welders / sealing machines: They pass electricity through a specific resistive material when pressed, heating it up. Impulse welders create pressure, melt materials, and make a strong, lasting weld.
  • Hot Air Welders: Using the generation of hot air to dissolve the material and allow it to weld. Welding is done by pressing the appropriate fragments of the material while feeding hot air.
  • High-frequency welding machines: Using high-frequency heating technology, these welders create welds as strong as the original material. The process relies on material properties to generate heat in a variable electromagnetic field. These welders work for certain materials. High-frequency welding involves subjecting connected parts to a high-frequency electromagnetic field (often 27.12 MHz), commonly used between two metal conductors.

Tarp welding machines have wide uses across various industries:

  • Construction and renovations: Tarpaulins protect materials on construction sites from weather. Welding machines join tarpaulins to shield against rain, wind, and sun.
  • Transportation: Trucks and trailers use tarpaulins to secure cargo. Welding ensures they endure rough roads and conditions.
  • Agriculture: Tarpaulins protect crops from weather and act as covers in agricultural tunnels. Welding easily connects tarpaulins where needed.
  • Gardening: Tarpaulins shield plants from frost, pests, and excessive sunlight. Welding precisely connects tarpaulins, crucial for complex shapes.

How to bond tarpaulin materials?

Making tarpaulins and covers is evolving with technology for efficiency and durability. Previously, tarpaulins were sewn, but today, welding machines are necessary. PVC is a common tarpaulin material, resistant to tearing and weather. UV exposure can fade it, but modern PVC film technologies add UV filters. Welding is the way to join PVC effectively.

Connecting two tarpaulin fabrics

To join two tarpaulins, use hot air, impulse welding or high-frequency welding machines. Impulse welding machines like PULSA ECO and PULSA SUPRIM by Zemat Technology Group are cost-effective and practical. Their long worktables allow precise, quick joining. For larger structures, consider high-frequency welding with a moving head like TARPA PRO, for long, cyclic linear welds.

Which welding machine for tarpaulin?

It depends on the producer’s needs, tarpaulin size, and type. For smaller parts like truck covers, the SIMPLA machine with a 1200 mm electrode is suitable. For bigger, advanced structures, impulse welders like PULSA ECO and PULSA ECO are recommended.

Also, TARPA PRO, an automated moving welder, suits large structures with technical fabrics like PVC, PU, TPU, and PE. It handles wide cyclic welds up to 1500 mm, enabling intricate tarp designs.

HF and Impulse welding advantages for tarpaulin

  • Strong bonds: Welding creates durable tarpaulin connections, extending material lifespan.
  • Time and labor savings: Manual tarpaulin connections are slow; welding automates the process, saving time and effort.
  • Precision and aesthetics: Welding ensures accurate, even joins for an attractive final product.
  • Safety: Welding is safe, no fumes or PVC smoke generated during hot air welding.
