TM-50 Trickle Impregnating Machine

Applies resins or coatings to small motor armatures and other products.

The Broomfield TM-50 trickle impregnating machine is designed to apply resins or coatings to small motor armatures and other products.

The operator is responsible for simply loading and unloading parts. The machine is automatically controlled by a programmable logic controller (PLC) that provides for multiple program storage.

The machine status and set up information is displayed on a terminal. Program changes can be easily made in response to menu-driven prompting.

  • Compact design
  • Machine tool collets for firm accurate parts handling
  • Programmable dual zone oven temperatures
  • Part temperature sensing
  • PLC control
  • Accurate resin application
  • Key lock to prevent unauthorized program changes
  • 32-station turret provides for 5.75" (146.05 mm) max diameter armatures
  • Part rejection warning light

The Broomfield TM-50 trickle impregnation machine features a rotary table with collets to hold 32 armatures. These collets are machine tool grade to ensure that the armatures are held firmly for accurate positioning. In its standard configuration, the machine has one trickle station with dual applicator tubes positional along the armature axis.

Operation: During a typical machine cycle, a door automatically opens when the machine is ready to be loaded. The armature then goes into the Preheat Oven, which raises the temperature of the part for proper resin application. This temperature may be displayed in either celsius or fahrenheit.

After preheating, the temperature of each armature is automatically measured. If the part is not at the correct temperature, no coating is applied. This operation also senses if no part is present. In either case, the machine remembers the location of the empty or bad part and turns on a reject part light when that part is ready to be unloaded.

After the part is trickled, it indexes to the Cure Oven where the coating hardens. The temperature of this oven is controlled independently from the Preheat Oven. Armatures are rotated during the preheat, trickle and cure operations to ensure an even distribution of the resin or coating.
