THERMEX THERMATRON offers RF heat sealers and RF welders with output power capabilities from 1.2kW to 40kW. Our RF systems are designed to produce a strong and uniform seal on a wide range of materials whether it is used for packaging, medical, fabric or automotive products. We can also customize RF heat sealing equipment based on the unique requirements of an industry’s sealing and heating processes, specially designed to achieve efficiency of operations.

RF heat sealers are sometimes referred to as RF welders, and are typically used to weld or fuse thermoplastic materials such as PVC, polyurethane, PET and other materials. RF Heat Sealers are also used to cure glue or rubber by joining materials through a direct heating method: meaning that heat is developed within the materials themselves. Manufacturers that utilize various plastics and industrial fabrics as part of their processes rely upon high quality industrial RF equipment.
