  • Patent number: 11077623
    Abstract: A device for welding thermoplastic tubes to a welding method, and to a welding knife. The device is provided for welding thermoplastic tubes, wherein the tubes are placed into tube holders and squeezed with the aid of tube clamps. A welding knife is moved between the first and the second tube holder and severs the tubes in the process. Cut ends and residual ends are thereby produced. The cut ends are aligned with one another by a relative movement of one tube holder with respect to the other tube holder and, by a horizontal movement of the two tube holders, are welded simultaneously to form continuous tubes.

  • Patent number: 6683285
    Abstract: Hot-air device with a heating element situated in a stream of air, with a carrier consisting of temperature-resistant material and heating wires located in the air channels, and with at least one metal mount for the carrier, wherein the temperature-resistant material of the carrier comes into at least partial electrical contact with the metal mount, and is connected to a device for interrupting the heating circuit, which, during heating, interrupts the heating circuit when a threshold value is reached owing to the measuring current discharged over the insulating material and the contact element. The direct and very quick measuring principle enables a simple and inexpensive protection of the heating element, as well as control and regulation without additional sensors. It is possible to control or regulate the hot-air temperature of the hot-air device via the measuring current.
