Autosealer 5500
Hernon Manufacturing's Autosealer 5500 ammunition sealing system is designed to dispense micro precision beads of Hernon sealant onto each cartridge/bullet interface and onto each cartridge/primer interface.  UV  anaerobic sealants dispensed via Hernon digital Sureshot dispensing  systems for precision sealant fluid control and consistency.  Hernon’s precision digital dispense system is capable of delivering volume doses with extreme accuracy coupled with the ability to digitally link the dose volume with a secondary rotary and or linear motion for a digitally controlled surface speed.

Hernon’s Sureshot precision digital dispense systems will have precision X, Y, and Z slide for manual adjustment allowing for small changes in needle geometry, timing, cartridge caliber, temperature and viscosity.  Cartridges will be transported using adjustable rotary dial for dispensing and UV cure.

Cartridge sealant assembly sequence cycle time is 0.2 second each @ 300 PPM.  Machine system speed is dependent on input feeding system and cartridge size. Hernon Manufacturing will make every reasonable attempt to enhance and facilitate the equipment operation for reduced machine cycle time. 

Hernon Ultraspot 1000 and fiberoptic Lineshot technology utilized for instant curing of visible sealants. UV lamps will have automatic lamp shutter that protects live ammunition if sealant conveyor stops and lamp shut down if machine is not initiated or remains idle for 5 minutes.   

Machine controlled via Yaskawa motion controller.  Operator interface will have a color touch screen with menus and prompts to aid the operator’s navigation throughout.  Operator controls to include a microscope view of primer dispense needle for machine set-up and operation.  Mechanical system designed to be easily cleared of adhesives, sealants and debris.

Machine guard framing designed from IPS / Bosch type materials.  Heavy-duty machine base / frame constructed via welded steel tubing.
