Acrobat 180

63mm - 180mm (2" IPS - 6" DIPS)

A versatile machine designed for low- or highforce fusion of 63mm to 180mm (2" IPS to 6" DIPS) pipe and fittings. The machine offers consistent butt fusion joints — providing a cost-effective alternative to electro-fusion — in an economical, reliable package.

The Acrobat is ideal for in-ditch work. It will convert from 4 to 3 jaws to create a more compact unit and will go even smaller by removing the base plate so that it fuses more easily in confined areas — reducing excavation time.
