Techniques to make expansion joints

Several techniques or combination of techniques enable the production of fabric expansion joints. Which way of production is chosen depends on:

  1. The application of the expansion joint
    - e.g. is 100 % air- or liquid tight required?
  2. What material of construction is required.

Laser en cutting techniques

  • Automated unwinding and cutting of fabric (with pizza or rotating knife);
  • Automated cutting of fabric using a laser cutter (cutting table 3 x 15 meter).

Sealing techniques

Buitink Technology uses all kinds of possible techniques to seal and combine canvas, foils and fabric to make sleeves and fabric expansion joints.

Think about:

  • Stitching and sawing;
  • High frequent welding(HF welding);
  • Ultrasonic welding;
  • Hot air welding;
  • Seamtec welding;
  • Miller welding;
  • Gluing;
  • Clamping.

Below you find pictures of several bonding techniques we use in our production facilities.
