SM-370-HA | Multiple tool flatbed welding machine

Following the introduction of the conveyor welding station SM-321-HA, that reduced the production time for a single truck curtain from multiple man hours to under 20 minutes, SolarEdge Automation developed the SM-370-HA: a flatbed multiple bridge, multiple tool index welding machine for the full-automatic production of truck curtains, anti-vandalism curtains and roofs in record-breaking cycle times.

Since its introduction in 2016, the SM-370-HA has seen several upgrades that make it the fastest, most efficient manufacturing solution for truck curtains and roofs currently available on the market. Full-automatic, highly efficient, very flexible, and very precise, this machine delivers extremely high production output and curtains and roofs of excellent quality.

The SM-370-HA can be custom made in terms of size, tools, and accessories, according to the manufacturing requirements of our customers. When high volume production is required, we add multiple bridges to apply vertical belts, or install high-per welding heads to speed up the operations. Welds can be horizontal, vertical, even diagonal or following a CAD patterns, and range from 50 mm belts and strips up to 350 mm, to straps with butterflies or anti-vandalism cables. Various cutting and marking solutions are available, making the SM-370-HA the most complete and efficient machine for the truck curtain industry available on the market today.
