New AERO press is here


Flexco recently made several enhancements to the Novitool AERO Portible Splice Press that continue to improve belt fabrication, while making the tool more user-friendly.

These enhancements include the addition of a quick release valve, increased bottom platen temperature control, and an upgrade to the flight case.

Instead of juggling several components on the jobsite and using valuable downtime to assemble the equipment, AERO users save time and money with only two components – a press and a power cord. 

With the AERO press, all the user needs to do is plug the unit in and get started.

The AERO press is also light, easy for one person to carry, and comes with a flight case for protection during storage and transportation.  Additional foam has been added to the flight case for secure shipping and handling.

The AERO features a quick cycle time – 8 to 12 minutes per splice. This translates to less downtime for the end-user, as well as more profit per job and more jobs per shift for the splicing crew.

The AERO press features integrated digital controls for temperature and pressure. Easier display codes make for an improved user interface. The settings also remain visible on the controllers from job to job so users with a single belt type will only have to push the start button.

The top and bottom platens can be set to achieve different temperatures, instead of a single temperature. Recent improvements have allowed the bottom platen to be set at a heat factor 99 percent lower than the top platen. This development makes the AERO ideal for belts with fabric backing. The top can be melted, while the bottom is unharmed. 

Available in widths of 300mm, 600mm, 1200mm and 1500mm, the AERO can be used in most conveyor operations.
