Flexco (Aust)  introduces the enhanced range of Novitool AERO portable splice press tools for endless splicing requirements.  

Recent enhancements to the Novitool AERO portable splice press such as the addition of a quick release valve, increased bottom platen temperature control and an upgrade to the flight case have improved belt fabrication while making the tool more user-friendly.  

Easy to carry, easy to use

Novitool AERO portable splice press tools are designed for user-friendly operation and consist of a press and a power cord, eliminating the need to carry several components and assemble them onsite. Operation is as simple as plugging the unit into a power outlet and getting started.  

The lightweight AERO press is 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. 

Endless splices in 8-12 minutes

At 8-12 minutes per splice, the Novitool AERO portable splice press offers a quick cycle time, resulting in less downtime for the end-user as well as more profit per job and more jobs per shift for the splicing crew.  

According to Chris Bayliss, managing director of Flexco (Aust), quick warm-up time and quick cooking also mean less belt degradation and less fabric shrinkage.  

A key advantage in the AERO press tool is that operators can make a test splice in just 10 minutes. A new quick release pressure valve gets belts up and running even more quickly. 

Convenient temperature and pressure controls

Digital controls are provided in the Novitool AERO portable splice press tools for temperature and pressure. In addition to an improved user interface with easier display codes, the settings also remain visible on the controls 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 enhancements have allowed the bottom platen to be set at a heat factor 99% lower than the top platen, allowing the tool to be used for belts with fabric backing. 

Several available sizes and voltages  

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

The AERO press is available with multiple voltage cords including 230 single phase, 230 three phase, 460 three phrase and 400 three phase as well as neutral. Users can select a single cable or multiple cables if they plan to use the press with different power sources.  

The Novitool AERO portable splice press can be used in conjunction with other tools in the Novitool line including the Pun M mobile finger punch and the Ply 130 ply separator.  

Flexco is a world-leading specialist in light-duty endless and mechanical belt splicing solutions.
