Partnering opportunity

New solution offered for welding, heating or bending plastic parts such as hoses and tubes

Summary

German company has developed a high-frequency generator with a matching network that can be used for welding plastic parts like hoses, lids or bags in a fast way. This innovative technology is characterized by being able to heat the plastic parts without heating its content. A manufacturer of relevant plants, equipment and devices is sought for commercial agreements with technical assistance.

Partner sought

Commercial agreementswith technical assistance are sought. Companies are sought that are interested in integrating this technical solution in equipment or devices that can be used in the food, medical or pharmaceutical sector. This could be, for example, be a plant manufacturer who would like to produce more advanced machinery for welding hoses or tubes. The German company will help to adjust or adapt the technology in the devices or equipment of the cooperation partner. All relevant know-how will be transferred.

Description

The German company is active in the field of high-frequency power electronics. It manufactures amplifiers, generators and matching networks. Over the past years, the company has developed a high-frequency generator with a matching network that can be used for welding, heating and bending materials that have a sufficiently high dielectric loss factor like PCV, PA or PET. Therefore, this solution is able to treat plastic parts like hoses, lids or bags. The product is already on the market and has been certified as part of a process to manufacture medical products of one of the companies' clients. The speed of the welding process is very high. It takes just one second for 6 mm of tube, hose or other parts. In contrast to other solutions, only the plastic part, i.e. the hose or tube but not its content will be heated during the welding, heating or bending process. For this reason, the technology can be used in different application areas, such as in the food industry as well as in the pharmaceutical or medical sector. Industrial partners are sought for commercial agreements with technical assistance. Potential partners could be manufacturers for the food, packaging, medical and pharmaceutical industry with an interest to implement the technology in their processes and equipment.

Advantages and innovations

The innovation that differentiates this technologies from currently available solutions lies in the fact that the technology enables only to heat the hose or tube during the process while not affecting the contents. Thus it is suitable for many applications. Further advantages of the high-frequency generator with a matching network are: • Treatment of different materials like PCV, PA or PET is possible • Higher speed of welding, heating, bending: one second per 6 mm plastic part

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
