Underground engineers have waited for it: The largest Leister WELDPLAST 605 hand extruder is impressive in the field of plastic welding in underground engineering thanks to its high output, durability and electronic functions such as the Leister Quality System. Curious? Read on now to find out how the WELDPLAST 605 will make you happy when working.
As an underground engineering professional, you know that for welding geomembranes you need a different extruder screw than in container construction. This is because the materials used in underground engineering have special properties. The WELDPLAST 605 therefore has an extruder screw plus two-zone heating specifically designed for welding geomembranes. Are you wondering what it is for? Two-zone heating was used for even better control of the temperature or plasticization.
As you can see in the picture, you always have the WELDPLAST 605 under control (handled). Regardless of the handle position, the extruder fits perfectly in your hand. Apart from that, the bow-shaped handle is well-balanced. You do not see this on the picture, but you notice it immediately when you guide the extruder for the first time during welding, transport it on the construction site or place it on the floor.
Have you ever been annoyed by the fact that the welding rod was in your way during extrusion welding, for example after a change of direction? Then you can now breathe easy. Like most Leister extruders (WELDPLAST 600, WELDPLAST S1, WELDPLAST S2, WELDPLAST S4, FUSION 1, FUSION 2, FUSION 3 and FUSION 3C) as well as the Weldy extruders booster EX2 and booster EX3, the new WELDPLAST 605 also has a double-sided welding wire feeder on both sides (left and right). This makes you more agile when welding and is less stressful.
Perhaps the power cable has already been in your way in the field of extrusion welding in underground engineering. This is the end of that because the WELDPLAST 605 is located under the housing. If you guide the extruder forward during extrusion welding, you now have a barrier-free path.
If you regularly read our blog posts or follow us on our social media channels Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram, you know that at the Leister Group we place great value on sustainability and the protection of our environment. That is why we have been equipping our products with Eco mode for several years. When you activate Eco mode with the WELDPLAST 605, you save up to 40% energy during breaks. If you then continue to work, the WELDPLAST 605 is ready to start again in a flash.
As mentioned at the beginning, the WELDPLAST 605 is designed for use in underground engineering applications. If you need a powerful extruder for apparatus and container construction, we recommend the WELDPLAST 600, which was specifically designed for this purpose.
