BriskHeat has released the ACR MiniPro single zone hot bonder, a smaller, low cost version of BriskHeat's ACR 3 Hot Bonder.
With a total weight under 18 lbs (9 kg), BriskHeat say that the MiniPro can perform composite curing repairs anywhere, including up ladders, towers, staircases, and on wings.
""There is a greater need for a smaller yet fully functional hot bonder,"" explains Tony Multon, Composite Product Manager of BriskHeat. ""We have several wind turbine blade and aircraft repair customers who like the features of our ACR 3 hot bonder such as the full-colour touch screen, but wanted it in a smaller package. Our design team did a great job of including the key features into the MiniPro. We believe we can now serve a larger audience because of the small size and low price. We are excited about sharing this new product with the aviation, wind turbine, sporting goods, automotive, marine, recreational vehicles, and racing industries.""
According to BriskHeat, the ACR MiniPro includes an easy-to-use full-color touch screen, USB data port, multiple language support, 10 thermocouple inputs, and a powerful vacuum venturi pump. The hot bonder is upgradeable with free software upgrades.
