VERTEX & VERTEX MAX Series - Advanced Self-Calibratable Heat Staking System
(You save )
The VERTEX & VERTEX MAX SERIES advanced Heat Staking Presses were designed from the start to set new standards in quality, safety, & performance. Offering high speed, ergonomic & repeatable solutions for precise and repeatable thermal applications, like heat staking (riveting) of plastic bosses, insertion, filter & membrane sealing, and many more plastics joining applications. Available in 2 sizes and 4 forces.
