Leister Technologies AG to Debut New Automatic Welder at IRE 2013

Chicago, IL, January 20, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Leister Technologies AG, the worldwide leader in plastic welding and hot air equipment, will debut its new UNIROOF E 40 mm automatic welder to the North American roofing audience at the International Roofing Expo (IRE), February 5-7 in San Antonio, Texas.

With its 1.6-inch overlap nozzle, the UNIROOF E 40 mm provides upward of 2900 watts of power with only a 13-amp current. That’s 25 percent more heat than its predecessor, the UNIROOF E. The new nozzle, combined with additional weight over the contact roller, ensures high-quality, uniform welds across roof sheeting made from TPO / FPO, PVC, ECB, EPDM and CSPE.

In addition, the UNIROOF E 40 mm’s compact design makes it ideal for small roofs (less than 5,382 square feet) and areas that are not easily accessible with other welders.

UNIROOF E 40 mm features include a controlled temperature and drive output that automatically compensates for voltage fluctuations, ergonomic operation thanks to a new guide bar, high-quality rustproof materials and ample power reserves.

Leister Technologies AG will showcase the UNIROOF E 40 mm at booth #1363, in addition to its other popular roofing welders, hand tools and accessories. This Includes the BITUMAT B2, TRIAC AT, TRIAC S and VARIMAT V2. Stop by to see the tools in action, and to speak with company representatives about their applications.
