Varimat - the new automatic welding machine for all roofing membranes
To maintain what is tried and tested and add new things in LEISTER’s motto for developing tools. And as far as innovation is concerned, a few more things have been added to the VARIMAT. Customer input is used by the LEISTER engineer as the yardstick for defining the conditions and requirements under which an automatic welding machine has to work without any problems and to be reliable and above all, user-friendly. The VARIMAT presents itself as a compact and easily manoeuvrable automatic welding machine, which only weights 20 kg. With the even faster welding speed and with simultaneous digital display of SET and ACTUAL value of the welding speed and welding temperature, the operator is being offered outstanding support to achieve a perfectly welded seam for all roofing membranes (incl. single-ply roofing membranes). The micro-controller provides further options according to customer specifications. The temperature and the welding speed are electronically controlled, independently of variations in the mains voltage and different stresses due to changes in ground surface and in the ambient temperature. The air volume is steplessly adjustable between 50% and 100%. An intregated automatic starter allows separate running-in at the start of the welding process. Furthermore, the optimum distribution of the machine’s weight onto the pressure roller prevents the development of annoying creases. The Radial transmission makes perfect tracking possible. The operator will be completely convinced by the modular construction for various welding seam widths of 20, 40, 80, 100 and even 120 mm. To change the mains voltage over from 230V to 400V is also possible without any problems with the VARIMAT. The automatic welding machine VARIMAT is CCA certificated and has CE conformity.
