Welding and Joining
After panels have been cut, one of the following steps is to process the edges. ASCO has multiple solutions to create hems or pockets, join panels together, or attach extruded profiles or splines.
All of ASCO welding machines make use of the impulse welding technique. This technique is based on a thin, conductive metal strip, which is heated by the current flowing through it.
TM250/300/350/400 Taping and Folding Machines
These machines apply a double-sided adhesive tape before folding a pocket. They are a suitable alternative to welding or sewing.
VM300/400 Folding Machine
When only a folding process is required, the ASCO VM300/400 folding machines are a suitable solution. The material is folded and pressed into a re-usable, U-shaped profile. The folded material can then be transported to the next process step while the fold is clamped firmly by the profile.
