Leister, a premier
tools with global
sales and a U.S.
headquarters in Itasca, IL., recently introduced two modular
thermoplastic extrusion welders. These highly-innovative
welders are designed as continuous operating
component tools for mounting on a robot or to be integrated
into a machine, creating an uncompromised solution
for automated extrusion welding or 3D printing of
The communication, drive components and interfaces
are chosen by the solution provider/integrator based on
individual preference and the given application. Electrical
and mechanical connection points are pre-set for convenient
integration of additional modules including hot-air
pre-heat and required sensors.
The WELDPLAST 220-i model weighs approximately 33
lbs. fully assembled and is capable of up to 2kg/hr output.
It can be used with a wide variety of thermoplastics commonly
used in additive manufacturing or for automated
fabrication of PE, PP or PVC components.
The WELDPLAST 600-i model weighs approximately 55
lbs. fully assembled and is capable of up to 6kg/hr output

Mobile Butt Welder
Abbeon’s exciting new EasyWeld 110 Butt Welder Mobile
Welding System is a plastic welding machine for butt welding
of PE, PP and PVDF pipes and fittings from OD 20 to
OD 110 mm. The basic machine has two large aluminum
basic clamping tools which can swivel up to 15° on each
side for the fabrication of segmented bends.
The machine is ideally
suited for use in
the pipeline system
and for installation
work because of its
light and compact
construction and horizontal
motion. In stationary
use, the machine can
be fixed in a vice or at
table support. A compact
manual planer is
operated by means of a ratchet. The electronically controlled
heating element, in accordance with DVS 2208
(220 V/600 W), has a working diameter of 140 mm. An
indicator light confirms temperature settings have been
reached on the Teflon coated heat plate. A steel carrying
case protects and stores the machine.
Included: Basic machine chassis, mechanical facing tool w/
two-edge usable blade, PTFE-coated heating element, tabletop
stand for heating element, metal transport case for
machine, eight different size reducers, accessories, clamps
for chassis, incl. horizontal and vertical adjustability.
The unit has an operating range of 20-110mm, has a
230V 50-60 Hz power supply and an 800 watt heating
element. The unit weights 71 lbs with all components and
comes with a range of reducer insets, 4 semi-circular jaws
per size, from 20 mm – 90mm.
Abbeon offers a complete range of plastic welding
equipment including automatic overlap welders, wedge
welders, extrusion welders, plate welders, ultrasonic
welders, fusion welders and hand welder kits.

High Speed Torch
The Laramy Torch is an
electrically heated, variable
gas flow torch of
proven design, featuring 6
Heat” elements for welding
450-1300°F. This highproduction
complete versatility of
inert gas selection for production
and speed welding on all types of thermoplastics.
“Located Heat” elements are ceramic, clad with stainless
steel for greater shock and break resistance – plus added
protection against overheating and burnout. “Located
Heat” design concentrates heat output at the tip end of the
torch for cooler, more comfortable barrel temperature while
delivering higher gas temperature at the tip from lower
wattage elements: 250, 350, 450 and 550-watt. The elements
are readily interchangeable in a single small-diameter
barrel for fast changeover and simplified operation.
Two new high-temperature elements, 650 and 750-
watts, make a heat range of 850-1300°F available for
speed welding of polypropylene and other high temperature
materials. These elements require use of a long barrel,
which is interchangeable with the shorter length barrel
used with the lower wattage elements.

Seelye, Inc., a division of Seelye Acquisitions, Inc., one of
the leading manufacturers of hot air thermoplastic welders
and accessories for over 65 years, is excited to announce
their new product the 2019Extender. The 2019Extender
helps users get into tighter areas and corners more easily.
With its slender design, the extender smoothly transitions
from the barrel to the end of the welding
tip, allowing users to have a better
view of the welding bead. Simply screw
the extender into the end of the barrel,
extending the barrel by approximately
4”, and the welding tip of
choice into the end of the extender.
As with all of Seelye’s welding tips,
the 2019 Extender is made out of
304 Stainless Steel and is interchangeable
with any of Seelye’s hot
air plastic welders and tips.

Large-Diameter for Tight
McElroy offers the solution for fusing large-diameter pipe
up to 65” OD in challenging, close-quarter working environments
with the new In-Ditch 1600. Its creation is in
direct response to a customer who needed a machine
capable of butt fusing large-diameter tie-in connections in
a high-density neighborhood with many turning roadways.
The In-Ditch 1600 is designed with a compact, 2-jaw
carriage and a top-loading heater and facer for added
flexibility. It is capable of fusing onto as little as 15" of
bar and skidded carriage provide ease of mobility and fit
within a small envelope. A roll cage helps protect the carriage
and hydraulics as they are lowered into the ditch.
The carriage of the In-Ditch 1600 has the same 30,000
pounds of clamping force per jaw as the time-proven
MegaMc® 1600, the largest in McElroy’s rolling machine
line, as well as the same 3,000 psi maximum pressure.

easy to use
quality welds. Two unique features set the Injecti weld
apart from other plastic welders. A hot tip melts into the
parent material eliminating the need to scrape off the
layer of oxidation before making a weld. The second feature
is its automatic feed system. This allows control of
the welderwith one hand and use of the other hand to
hold the partbeing welded.
Drader also stocks a range of welding rod and custom
manufactures numerous colors and types of plastic.
Customers can also send their own resins to ensure the
welding rod matches the parent plastic material exactly.
