产品故事2019年9月17日

Good news for all those who have welded roofs by hand up to now. The new UNIDRIVE 500 from Leister makes your life easier. Why? Because the small, 4.5 kilogram semi-automatic hot air welding machine combines manual and automatic welding in one handy device. Welding close to the edge, welding in small spaces, at least three times faster than manual welding, and so on. Doesn't exist, you think? Yes, there is, we say. If you read on, you will find out why.

Welding flat and pitched roofs

The UNIDRIVE 500s overlap technology enables the tool to weld all thermoplastic geomembranes, e.g. polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO). In addition to welding various thermoplastic membranes, you are able to weldflat or pitched roofs with ease.

Weld close to the edge and in small spaces

Our development team has come up with something special so that you no longer have to worry about the difficulties of welding close to the edge or in small spaces: a rotating nozzle and dual drive. Watch the video to see how it works.

UNIDRIVE 500 redefines hand welding and excels in areas that were otherwise a problem for roofers, e.g. welding on or at the parapet, skylight domes, head laps, connections or small terraces.

Optimal pressure, low-maintenance and fast

Guided by two handles, you're able to apply optimal pressure for all basic welds without exhausting yourself. The UNIDRIVE 500s brushless motors require very little maintenance, keeping you as productive as possible. Additionally, this semi-automatic welder enables weld speeds that are two to three times faster than traditional hand welding. If you're curious to see how the UNIDRIVE 500 performs, contact us to test it and see the results for yourself.

Unmatched by the competition  thanks to its rotating nozzle and dual direction welding capabilities

The UNIDRIVE 500 is easy to operate thanks to its intuitive user guidance; You can change the drive direction from left to right (or vice versa) in no time at all.

A specially developed sensor ensures constant parameters, enabling you to achieve thorough and high-quality welds, even at low voltages. Additionally, the UNIDRIVE 500s digital display ensures that the you have everything under control while welding.

UNIDRIVE 500s Unbeatable Advantages
