OMG® Roofing Products, a provider of induction-based fastening technology for commercial roofing applications, has introduced a new RhinoBond® tool with OptiWeld™ Technology, providing automatic calibration on membrane up to 80 mils thick. OMG’s exclusive OptiWeld Technology optimizes the energy required to generate consistent, high performing bonds with installed OMG RhinoBond Plates.
While the RhinoBond System is already easy-to-use, roofing contractors frequently ask about a simplified calibration process. OptiWeld Technology eliminates the manual calibration process by optimizing the temperature of the RhinoBond Plate during the welding cycle to assure the best bond possible. The process saves valuable time and labor for contractors during the daily set-up process.
In addition to OptiWeld Technology, the new tool features an LED touch screen interface that controls the tool’s functionality. From the home screen, contractors can set a preferred language, adjust the brightness of the display screen, set the sound level and desired tone, as well as review and adjust the OptiWeld settings if necessary.
OptiWeld Tools also track completed weld cycles so that contactors can monitor daily productivity. In addition, contractors can troubleshoot from the menu and easily access the online owner’s manual if necessary. Other updates for the tool include a newly designed, ergonomically-friendly grip that provides operator comfort and enhanced protection for the activation trigger, more robust electronics for improved tool reliability, and a bold new graphic look that differentiates RhinoBond with OptiWeld from the thousands of RhinoBond Classic tools already in the market.
