Flexible to Meet the Demands of Any Jobsite

Acrobat 315

200mm - 315mm (8" - 12")

The Acrobat 315 fusion machine has a lightweight, compact design for easy maneuvering in tight indoor work spaces specific to the polypropylene industry. To further reduce its footprint, the carriage can be configured from 4 to 3 jaws without tools.

The Acrobat is compatible with two hydraulic power units (HPUs) designed to meet the maximum system pressure desired on your jobsite. Two carriage pressure configurations are available: low force, for fusing in lowdrag situations or with thinner-walled pipe; and high-force, for fusing in high drag and vertical applications. Both allow the operator to preset the facing, heating and fusing pressures.
