Acrobat 160

63mm - 160mm (2" - 6")


The Acrobat 160 is a low-force fusion machine that allows operators to butt fuse pipe in tight work spaces. With its small footprint and optimal weight, it is an easy machine to manipulate when performing overhead fusions in tight spaces as well as on the ground.

For even tighter spaces, the Acrobat 160 can be configured from 4 jaws to 3 jaws without using tools. It also comes with a Hydraulic Power Unit (HPU) and inserts for commonly butt-fused polypropylene pipe sizes. The facer and heater can be loaded from the top or bottom (in the 3-jaw configuration) of the carriage giving the operator better access and flexibility regardless of the joining challenge.
