McElroy has released the SmartFab™ 125, its first benchtop machine which offers a way to socket fuse pipe and fittings for polypropylene piping systems. The machine is portable and can be positioned on any flat surface for precise prefabrication on large assemblies. Features include inserts which can reduce ovality in pipe and fittings. It also has a pivoting heater to easily accommodate fittings located on either side of the machine. The SmartFab 125 has four jaws that adjust to any desired spacing and each jaw clamps individually which allows for a greater combination of pipe and fitting sizes. The machine offers plenty of clearance with a removable outer fixed jaw and its rack-and-pinion drive provides smooth and steady fusion force.
