Safety Instructions

Warning

When using electric tools, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and personal injury. Failure to follow these instructions can result in severe personal injury.

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY!

The importance of using safe operating procedures can not be over emphasized. The following guidelines will assist you in safe operations.

1.Read all warning labels and heed their instructions during installation and operation.

2.Use proper line voltage (110 VAC) and air pressure (80/psi air pressure) as outlined.

3.Keep hands clear of pinch points during operation and do not touch any of the heated plates while loading or unloading garments.

4.Do not remove any guards. Guards must be in place during operation.

5.Use only an authorized person to service machine and be sure all power sources (air and electrical) are disconnected during service.

6.Do not attempt to circumvent safety features.

Adherence to these instructions will prevent injury to personnel and with care and normal maintenance the equipment will provide many years of service.

Model 7112 Flock Feed Heat

Sealer

The 7112 FF Sealer has been designed to automate the feeding of labels, flocks and stackable embroideries. Precision and versatility have been the keynotes of its design.

Precision in that each item can be repeatedly fed to 1/32 of an inch in position. Versatility in that the system can feed one item at a time or two at once. This provides the means by with a garment that needs two labels can be labeled with one stroke of the press. Thus providing twice the production capability for the cycle time.

A further option that is available is the reciprocal base system, which will automatically position garment items under the press head. This feature makes it possible to load and unload garments prior to actual sealing.

The installation is covered in the following section.

Model 7112 Flock Feed Heat Sealer 3

Installation

Your Electro-Sealercan be mounted on a table or stand of your choice, either by bolting through the same holes as used to attach the shipping base, or be attaching the shipping base itself to the table.

A MINIMUM OF 80 PSI OF AIR is required to operate the machine. This should be attached to the 1/4 NPT inlet of the air filter at the rear of the machine cabinet. The air gauge at the rear of the cabinet should show 80 PSI; if not, the line pressure is not correct.

The vacuum pump with which your Electro-Sealeris equipped is shipped in a separate container, complete with hose and fitting. Attach and tighten the hose to its fitting, which is located under the rear corner of the machine cabinet. The pump is turned on by a switch located on its power cord.

Model number, serial number, and ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS are listed on a plate attached to the side of the cabinet at the rear.

Prior to shipment, the machine has been completely checked out in actual operation, including an accurate mechanical leveling of the base in relation to the electrodes.

Heat, dwell time, and pressure are the basic fundamentals that determine the results obtainable on a thermo-plasticsealing application, such asElectro-Seallabeling. It is impossible with the variety of fabric materials and constructions, as well as design of garments, to establish any one setting that will give the most desirable results under all circumstances, but settings will be suggested upon request and submission of an application description.

4 Installation

Users Manual Electro-Sealer7112 BR

General Description

Main Switch

This turns the machine on and off.

Hold Switch

This switch locks out the timer; the head will come down but the timer will not work. The head stays down as long as the foot pedal is depressed. THIS IS A MAINTENANCE FUNCTION used when changing electrodes to insure that they are well seated and parallel to the base when tightened.

Auto Switch

Turning this switch to the "on" position will activate the feed system, transporting a label from the hopper to underneath the electrode, ready for sealing.

Timer

The dwell time can be set by turning the pointer in the center of the dial face to the desired time.

Air Pressure Gauge/Regulator

Adjustment of air pressure is accomplished by turning the knob under the air pressure gauge. To raise the pressure, turn the knob clockwise; to lower, turn it counter-clockwise.When lowering the pressure, allow the needle on the gauge to drop below the desired pressure, then raise it back to that pressure. The reason for this is that there is a lag when bleeding air out of the system.

Heat Controls

Electrode and plate head can be set independently. The correct temperature will be indicated on the control's face. If the control fails to reach this, refer to the heat control pages provided.

Foot Switch

Depression of the foot switch starts the unit cycling for the time indicated on the cycle timer. The foot switch should be kept in the depressed state until the press cycles out and the seal is completed. As the press starts to rise, the food pedal can be released, allowing the machine to re-setautomatically, feeding a label from the hopper to the electrode, ready for sealing. Removal of pressure from the foot switch at any time after the start will immediately break the cycle and return the press to neutral.

General Description 5

Basic Sealing

Heat, dwell time, and pressure are the basic fundamentals that determine the results obtainable on a thermo-plasticsealing application, such asElectro-Seallabeling. It is impossible with the variety of fabric materials and constructions, as well as design of garments, to establish any one setting that will give the most desirable results under all circumstances. ON THE BASIS OF EXTENSIVE SUCCESSFUL LAUNDRY TESTS, ON AVERAGE WEIGHT GOODS INVOLVING BOTH WOVEN AND KNIT MATERIALS, WE WOULD SUGGEST THE FOLLOWING STARTING POINTS FOR A NEWELECTRO-SEALUSER.

An air pressure setting of 60 pounds (30 pounds for thin, delicate knitwear) which is determined by the air control knob and indicated by the gauge above it on the left side of the machine. A cycle time of 1 1/2 - 2 seconds for average weight fabrics and labels has proven adequate for laundry proof attachment. On heavier goods and/or large heavy weight labels, longer times may be required.

Setting the plate heat at 375ºF has proven to be a good starting point. On heavy weight denims, it may be necessary to increase this to 400ºF. Setting the electrode heat will depend on the type of adhesive being used.

Remember…these are only basics, and these settings can vary. Seal a label to a sample. As your Electro-Sealertimes out and releases itself, immediately remove the fabric and lift the corner of the label. If the adhesive has stuck to both the fabric and the label, the sealing can be judged successful. If all the adhesive is on the fabric and none on the label, decrease the plate heat or cut back the time. Adhesives tend to flow toward the heat.

If the adhesive has not transferred to the fabric, you have three adjustments that can be made:

A.Increase the plate heat

B.Decrease the electrode heat; thermoplastics tend to flow towards higher heat when melting.

C.Increase the cycle time to allow complete melting.

If the adhesive has all transferred to the fabric with none left on the label, you may:

A.Reduce the plate heat

B.Decrease the cycle time

You must judge for yourself, depending on the fabric's sensitivity to heat and time, which of the adjustments will be best.
