Simple to use, even with oxidized, tin-plated wiring
Sonobond's SpliceRite Wire Splicers can quickly splice wire bundles, making a true metallurgical bond without arcs, sparks or fumes. There's no need for crimping, clipping, soldering or dipping, and SpliceRite can even bond wire bundles with oxidized or tin-plated wires, something ordinary splicers can't do. It uses the company's own patented "Wedge-Reed" system of high vibratory force and low amplitude coupling, and comes in both 1500 and 2500W capacity. Users can control welds by height, energy or time. The splicer's microprocessor can interface with a computer via RS232 port, and it can store and recall up to 250 jobs. It is easy to use, running off the push of a button once set up.
