With our superior radio frequency (RF) welding services, APPF Inc. custom fabricates large area maintenance shelter (LAMS) tension building panels, made from 23 oz. triple laminate PVC, for clients in the military & private industry. We begin each project with a customer-supplied print and a 2D auto CAD drawing. Using our clients CAD engineering drawings, we develop a manufacturing process by dividing up the job into a series of Sewing and RF Welding operations along with the design of tooling and fixtures. Once tooling and fixtures are created and validated the process engineering phase is complete, leading to full scale production.
We use industrial sewing machines to fabricate the rope edge (keder) as well as fastening points along both edges of the 100 foot long panel.These panels typically measure 12 feet in width and weigh in excess of 300 lbs. One of our 3, computer driven, moving head track welders on a 130 foot long table is used to complete the fabrication. The final LAMS tension building panels weigh 300 lbs. We pride ourselves on holding tolerances, as tight as +/- 1/16", and perform ISO-9001:2008 in-process testing and inspection.
Our commitment to unparalleled quality is what sets us apart from other companies. As a result of our superior RF welding processes, each project-such as our work with LAMS panels-bears the mark of our expertise. With the latest technology fueling our work, we consistently deliver the best in plastic heat sealing services
We also offer for Fabric panel restoration services. We're pleased to provide a 30-day turnaround time. To learn more about our panel fabricating capabilities, please contact us.
