Roofing Tool Eliminates Manual Calibration Process

OMG Roofing Products has introduced a RhinoBond tool with OptiWeld Technology, providing automatic calibration on membrane up to 80 mils thick. OMG’s OptiWeld Technology optimizes the energy required to generate bonds with installed OMG RhinoBond Plates.

In addition to OptiWeld Technology, the tool features an LED touch screen interface that controls functionality of the tool. From the home screen, contractors can set a preferred language (currently English or Spanish, with other languages to be added in the future), 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 access the on-line Owner’s Manual, if necessary. Other updates for the tool include an ergonomically-friendly grip that provides operator comfort and enhanced protection for the activation trigger, more robust electronics for tool reliability, and a new graphic look that differentiates RhinoBond with OptiWeld from the thousands of RhinoBond Classic tools already in the market.

The tool weighs 21 pounds and operates on 110V and 220V power sources for global use. Each tool comes with six magnetic cooling clamps and a carrying case that protects the induction tool when not in use. Using a 12-gauge RhinoBond Power Cord (sold separately), the RhinoBond tool can be operated up to 100-feet from the power source.

The RhinoBond System is designed for installing TPO and PVC roofing membranes and is approved for use by leading roof system manufacturers globally. The System uses induction welding technology to bond roofing membranes directly to specially coated plates used to secure the insulation to the deck. The result is a roofing system with improved wind performance that requires fewer fasteners, plates, seams, and does not penetrate the new membrane. Since it was introduced in 1998, nearly 3 billion square feet (278 million square meters) of membrane have been installed with the RhinoBond System in 38 countries around the globe.
