Housing V3 Sealer Construction


We are attempting to make a custom heat sealer for the polyethylene housing we intend to use on Wocket V3. This involves cutting parts for the machine, which must precisely apply heat and pressure to the polyethylene in the appropriate shape. Particularly tricky is the area around the microSD connector, which must stick out through the polyethylene but still be water tight.

Multiple layers of material sandwiching the steel shim stock that must be cut into the shape of the heating element:
