The digitally controlled WELDPLAST S2 PVC hand extruder is designed for use on PVC-U, HD-PE, LD-PE and PP membranes and produces plastic welding results easily and efficiently. It uses either 3- or 4-mm welding rod, which is conveniently fed into the extrusion section of the welder at one of two points around the barrel. It provides output of up to 2.7 kg/hour. The exclusive rod feed design minimizes excessive twisting of the welding rod during feeding, which reduces “bird nesting” and stoppages. Its ergonomic design is especially well suited for plastic welding in tight spaces. The tool features integrated digital electronics with a digital display for precise adjustment and control of preheat air temperature, extrudate temperature and the output rate. Its built-in protection circuit prevents the extruder drive from cold starting. STANMECH Technologies Inc. CIRCLE NO. 24 ON READER REPLY CARD

MOBILE ANCHOR SYSTEM
The WEIGHTANKA is a non-penetrating, portable, deadweight anchor device designed for use on roofs with up to a 5-degree pitch where installation of passive or collective protection, such as guardrails or permanent anchor devices is not viable because of restricted means of safe access. It utilizes a central pedestal (attachment point) to raise the height at which the arrest force is applied, thus reducing the distance the anchor device moves during a fall-arrest event. A basic system weighs 250 kg, with no single item weighing more than 25 kg for ease of installation and provides fall protection for one or two workers that remain at least 50 cm away from the roof edge. It is designed for use with personal protection equipment such as harnesses. Kee Safety, Inc. CIRCLE NO. 28 ON READER REPLY CARD
NANOSILICA FILLED EPOXY
Master Bond UV22 is a nanosilica reinforced, UV curable epoxy system that offers a combination of properties not available in conventional epoxy systems. The nano-sized filler gives the cured system exceptional abrasion resistance, excellent optical clarity, low shrinkage and superb physical strength properties, while still allowing the product to have a low viscosity of 4,000 cps. UV22 cures rapidly upon exposure to UV light at room temperatures. It is a single component system and requires no mixing.

The new Motion Programming Script (MPS) is an easy-to-use, network-enabled implementation of a BASIC-like programming language with commands added specifically for motion control. It empowers electrical and mechanical engineers with relatively little programming knowledge to quickly write complex motion sequences and program equipment via short, easy-to-use and intuitively-named commands. The MPS is especially useful in stage gantry and robotics applications, where the need for complex motion intersects with the need for simple commands. Kollmorgen CIRCLE NO. 37 ON READER REPLY CARD

Seco’s new PVD-Coated MP3000 Milling Grade is designed for milling steel and tool steels with relatively thin average chip thickness. The new grade is especially effective in square shoulder and copy milling applications where wear resistance and tool life need to be improved. The new MP3000 cemented carbide is produced to provide the grade a high hardness combined with relatively good toughness. A slightly thicker PVD coating increases wear resistance over a large application range and an improved coating process greatly increases coating adhesion, edge quality and edge integrity.
