Tagged with: Product Design

Malcom Technologies of Portsmouth, RI introduces the MCH-100-HM Portable Heavy Duty Battery Powered Hot Iron for Hot Melt applications in the field.  The MCH-100-HM tool was originally developed for smoothing proprietary hot melt plugs into composite aircraft wing and fuselage components.  This portable tool can also be used for many other applications including soldering, curing, shrinking, bonding and pre-heating.

The MCH-100-HM runs on Malcom's MCH-102NW 48V DC Power Supply and can reach temperatures up to 1100 degrees F.  The tool features an internal thermocouple that provides brass tip temperature feedback to an inline control box that maintains brass tip external temperature within +/-2 degrees F of the adjustable set point. The set and actual external brass tip temperature are read through an EMI shielded window. Utilizing the full capacity of its Watlow Temperature Controller, the Hot Melt Iron program can be customized for specialized applications that can include safety alarms, program lockout levels, upper and lower set limits, calibrated linearizations, and material specific PID settings.

The MCH-100-HM is designed and tested to military standards including EMI 461, Water Intrusion, Drop Test, Salt Fog, Explosive Atmosphere and is CE tested and marked.  The control system is housed in a sealed heavy duty aluminum case for rugged field use.

The MCH-100-HM can be configured for various process heating applications by means of various brass tips that can be machined to the customers specifications.  The MCH-100-HM tool can be used for a variety of applications including soldering, shrinking, curing, smoothing, hot-melt, bonding and pre-heating.
