called hot gas (air) welding uses a heat gun, known as a
hot air welder, and creates hot air to melt the two pieces
of polymer together with a plastic filler rod.
The polymer sheet can be bent and thermoformed
using a heat gun and bending bar. To learn more visit

Leister, a premier
tools with global
sales and a U.S.
headquarters in Itasca, IL., recently introduced two modular
thermoplastic extrusion welders. These highly-innovative
welders are designed as continuous operating
component tools for mounting on a robot or to be integrated
into a machine, creating an uncompromised solution
for automated extrusion welding or 3D printing of
The communication, drive components and interfaces
are chosen by the solution provider/integrator based on
individual preference and the given application. Electrical
and mechanical connection points are pre-set for convenient
integration of additional modules including hotair
pre-heat and required sensors.
The WELDPLAST 220-i model weighs approximately 33
lbs. fully assembled and is capable of up to 2kg/hr output.
It can be used with a wide variety of thermoplastics commonly used in additive manufacturing or for automated
fabrication of PE, PP or PVC components.
The WELDPLAST 600-i model weighs approximately
55 lbs. fully assembled and is capable of up to 6kg/hr output
for automated fabrication applications using HD-PE,
LD-PE or PP.

High Speed Torch
The Laramy Torch is an electrically heated, variable gas
flow torch of proven design, featuring 6 interchangeable
“Located Heat” elements for welding temperatures
from 450-1300°F. This high-production torch offers complete
versatility of inert gas selection for production and
speed welding on all types of thermoplastics.
“Located Heat” elements are ceramic, clad with stainless
steel for greater shock and break resistance – plus
added protection against overheating and burnout. “Located
Heat” design concentrates heat
output at the tip end of the torch for
cooler, more comfortable barrel temperature
while delivering higher gas
temperature at the tip from lower
wattage elements: 250, 350, 450 and
550-watt. The elements are readily interchangeable
in a single small-diameter
barrel for fast changeover and
Two new high-temperature elements,
650 and 750-watts, make a
heat range of 850-1300°F available for
speed welding of polypropylene and
other high temperature materials.
These elements require use of a long
barrel, which is interchangeable with
the shorter length barrel used with
the lower wattage elements.

High Temperature Welding
Seelye, Inc., a division
has been a leader
in the thermoplastic
for more than 60
years with their
Model 63 Series has been a staple in the plastic industry
since its creation back in the 1950s. With three options
within the Model 63 Series, the user can pick the welder
that will best suit their needs. The SI-1005 Welder is an
excellent welder for home use. It is small and compact
and can weld everything from PVC fences to water pipes
to car bumpers. The SI-1002 is the exact same welder but
comes with a Carrying Case and Tacking Tip. This welder
is a good option for customers who need to do small repairs
on a more regular basis. The SI-1167 is the Model
63’s portawelder. This welder allows the user to be able
to go onsite to perform repairs.
Their SI-2001FC Series makes production welding easier.
Between the control board with rheostat and adjusting
the airflow, this welder has infinite heat settings,
making welding thermoplastics from PP to PVC to
UHMW possible. Like their Model 63 SI-1167, the SI-
2001FCP is a portable welder and is capable of welding
all the same plastics as the SI-2001FC Welder. Just plug
the SI-2001FCP into a 110-volt electrical outlet and you
are ready to weld. Welding high-temperature plastic has
never been easier. Seelye, Inc. is a one-stop shop for all
your thermoplastic welding needs.
Both series come with a standard 500-Watt 120-Volt
Heating, but do have available 400-Watt or 650-Watt
Heating Elements upon request.

Hot Air Welder
its slight lean oval shape that allows you to work ergonomically.
This powerful welder has an efficient twin turbine
system providing an airflow of 280 liters/minute. With this
above average airflow, a robust 1650W heat element yields
maximum heat temperatures, which are adjustable using
the heat control knob. The Oval-Q is lightweight (3 lbs)
giving you ergonomic and fatigue-free operation and has
an optimally balanced motor for minimal handle vibration.
It is also available in 230V, 1500W power.
Suitable for welding all thermo-plastics the Oval-Q
welds roofing materials, textiles, tarpaulin and banner
materials, pond liners, and vinyl sheets. With a simple
tip change, you can also use it with welding rod for plastic
repairs of bins, bumpers, totes and many other plastic
parts. You can quickly and easily clean the air filters by
a simple separation from the handgrip to ensure maximum
airflow and proper tool function.
