Ok, we're a bit of a nerd when it comes to plastic fusion. So the mood was high when we received a completely awesome new machine last week - actually the only one of its kind in Scandinavia! The McElroy top model: Tracstar 1200.
Tracstar 1200 can fuse pipes with dimensions up to a staggering 1200 mm. It is mobile and belt-driven, which means that it can be used in rough terrain, which is a great advantage on many of our jobs.
The biggest advantage is the quality of the welds. Tracstar is fully automatic and hydraulically controlled, which provides good, efficient welds - with less personnel and lifting equipment. Without such a machine, there is often a lot of "hassle" with manual work and adjustments on pipes with large dimensions. Time to close the jaws and assure contact will also be much shorter with this machine - well within the requirements of the codes.
And like "icing on the cake": Tracstar automatically logs every single weld! It documents ALL welds with time and date, certificate number, image and location with GPS coordinates. All this is stored easily accessible to provide a world-class traceability.
