SiCCab Family

Silicon Carbide Generator for Cable Manufacturing

The SiCBond family of power supplies corresponds to a range of oriented-application generator focused in bonding applications by induction heating with a maximum total power of 100 kW for some bonding non ferromagnetic materials as Aluminium.

SiCBond generators family can be single output for full bonding or dual bonding, with just one heating inductor or with several U inductors connected in series, dual output for twin bonding or up to 8 independent power ports for spot bonding applications.

SiCBond generators are based on the ultimate power electronics technologies as Silicon Carbide (SiC) MOS Transistors, ultrafast high isolation circuitry and advanced transistor driving circuits and fully digital controller all integrated in a PCB, allowing an overall efficiency higher than 98% @ 40 kHz (inductor losses not included) and consequently very small and compact chillers.

Full, Dual or Twin SiCBond generators require an external heating station including the resonant capacitor bank and the Spot generators SiCBond-S Family integrate the resonant capacitor bank inside the generator and is connected to the bonding U-Inductor via an extremely small and highly efficient coaxial transformer

SiCBond integrate a cooling system that can be configured as Air/Water cooling system or water/water cooling system according customer’s needs.

SiCBond generators are very simple to operate as the control features simplifies the operation of the inverter and the HMI guides the user with very simple instructions to operate the machine.

THE MAIN ADVANTAGES OF SiCBond FAMILY

  • Wide Range of bonding applications with the same generator.
  • Extremely high efficiency.
  • Very small size and weight.
  • Very high robustness due to the use of SiC MOS Transistors.
  • Very easy use of the generator due to the use of advanced cyber-physical algorithms that auto-adjust the generator depending on the required heating process.

The SiCBond Family Features & Subsystems

SiCBond heat treatment units ranges power from 25 to 100 kW. The supply voltage is 400 / 480 VAC ± 10 % and the system has integrated his own cooling system. As standard, SiCBond Family include the Siemens PLC with communication capabilities via industrial buses like Profinet, Modbus, Ethernet etc. SiCBond HMI options are a Siemens PLC and pyrometric control.

The SiCBond family is based on the 25, and 50 kW SiCtech MF power modules that include in a PCB, a plug-able FPGA controller as well as the power section and a water cooled heatsink that features all the requirements needed in an induction heating application.

For  Full, Dual and Twin bonding, SiCtech offers standard as well as custom design external heating stations integrating in a, up to 10 m., separate cabinet a highly efficient output transformer and the resonant capacitor bank. In case of Spot Bonding, SiCtech provides external very highly efficient reactive coaxial water-cooled transformer for the connection of the generator to the bonding U-coil.

A highly interactive and
comprehensible HMI guides the user in any interaction with the generator as the starting up, the temperature cycle programming, the resonant frequency selection by the autotuning function, the matching of the load etc. and provides information on the status and working conditions of the generator at any time.
