One week more, we bring great news amour machinery and this is especially for the sector of the welding of pipes. Our already known brand McElroy has surprised us once again with the incorporation of the Acrobat 160 to its catalogue of machinery. The advantages of the Acrobat 160 for welding pipes are so many that even they allow us to weld above the head without any difficulty.

…………….

The Acrobat 160 is the solution for many of the problems that arose when you had to perform a welding in the working site.

When the welding was performed on the ground, any machine for pipes could be useful and you could make the joining without any difficulty.

But when the welding was to be performed vertically or above the head, there were difficulties. Lifting the weight of the 4 clamps plus the car and placing it at 3 or 4 meters high, would be a work that had to be done with several workers.

Which are the advantages of the Acrobat 160?

With the Acrobat 160, the problem is eliminated, as you have seen in the video the 4 clamps can turn into 3 and the frame can be removed without using tools and in a quick way, so that you can place it easy and quickly both vertically and like on the roof.

Another advantage of the Acrobat, it is easy to place the removable electric facer and the mirror both below like under the frame. That is, if you have the machine in a hollow in which you can only place the removable electric facer or the mirror above, you could do it and if you could only place it below, you could also do it. This gives the worker a better access and flexibility regardless the difficulty of the joining.

It must be also highlighted that its compact and light size allows you to work in places with little space or with difficulty of movement where before it was impossible to work because the size of the machines impeded it.

The Acrobat 160 is a machine with hydraulic movements which allows you to move the pipes to put the proper pressure and make sure a welding of great quality.

With the clamps, you can weld pipes from 63mm up to 160mm of diameter and besides they are very easy to change as it doesn’t need tools. Simply with the hands you can remove a clamp and place the reduction of the size you want.

Another great advantage of the la Acrobat 160: its hydraulic. This model incorporates a hydraulic with a hose of 6 metres long to connect it to the machine. Those 6 metres of hose, compared to the 1.5 that are common in all the models of butt welding machines make it unique.

Due to its length, you can have the hydraulic on the ground and the machine placed on the roof and performs the welding without any difficulty. This avoids placing the hydraulic on a scaffold at the proper height so that the machine could work.

In addition to the great quantity of the advantages that the Acrobat 160 brings to the market, it must be highlighted that it is compatible with the Data Logger of McElroy. So we could connect it to the hydraulic and make sure a right execution of the steps of the welding by following the guidelines that are set by the Data Logger. You could also obtain a final report of the welding with which you can demonstrate that the welding is well done.

In conclusion, it is the ideal machine to weld pipes up to 160mm.
