BriskHeat (Columbus, Ohio) has released the new ACR 3 hot bonder. It features a touch-screen interface and includes a new dual-vacuum system — a built-in electric pump and vacuum venturi — allowing for a faster and stronger vacuum. It also offers easy data transfer via USB flash drive. BriskHeat also says the unit is smaller, lighter and easier to use than previous models. The system is available as a single-zone and dual-zone unit and can be ordered with or without long-lasting, extra-flexible silicone heating blankets.
