As one of the early founders of Cosmos/Kabar, Jerry Lippman, a pioneer and developer of RF High Frequency welding, began his own heat sealing company in the late 1950′s which became known as Thermo-Dielectric Machine Company. Originally based in Brooklyn, New York, later merged with High Tech Automation of Freeport, Long Island, New York. As High Tech Automation became known as an engineering innovation company combining heat sealing technology with automation, Jerry’s son, Glenn Lippman founded Novaseal Corporation as a Colorado-based heat sealing company.
Founded in the early 1990′s, Novaseal began by manufacturing its patented and proprietary line of Novaweld-branded wedge welders for sealing geosynthetics … geomembranes and geotextiles. With the popularity (thousands purchased world-wide) of the hand-held GT-100 Wedge Welder, Novaseal’s line expanded with semi-automatic wedge welding machines (GT-200, GT-500) and relatively soon thereafter became the “go to” company for heat sealing geotextiles, HDPE, vinyls, and virtually all materials used in civil engineering and industrial markets. In 2002, Novaseal and High Tech Automation merged and moved to Boca Raton, Florida. Today, Novaseal produces a full line of standard and customizable products. Our standard products include a technology developed by Novaseal that combines attributes of RF High Frequency sealing with more traditional impulse welding to form a proprietary, patent pending method, referred to as Pulse Sealing technology.
Pulse Sealing is limited for sealing straight (not curved) seals. It can be used to seal virtually all thermoplastic materials, and with available sealing tapes, all thermoplastic/thermoset materials, without deformation, color distortion and at rates significantly faster than competitive technologies. Novaseal continues to manufacture and distribute its internationally acclaimed line of wedge welders, however with improved manufacturing and reliability methods.
Although technology has improved over the years since the late 1950′s, with advanced programming techniques and manufacturing methodologies, Novaseal still believes in our mantra, “there’s literally no application we can’t solve.” All machines are engineered, designed and manufactured in the United States using American Ingenuity with a focus on Innovation.
Novaseal continues to be a proud sponsor of InventionUSA, an organization that provides inventors with assistance including prototype development, patent process, licensing and venture funding.
