DC battery-powered capabilities. “The smaller size and lighter weight make these bon-


ders easier to use in remote areas, and improve response time for technicians in the field,” HEATCON founder Howard Banasky said. The equipment has a display that lets mechanics easily


monitor the cure cycle of the composites used in repairs, which is important for assuring that the resulting compo- nent meets airworthiness requirements. “Speed, rapid response and visually assuring that cure


cycle parameters are being followed are absolutely essential in this whole process,” Banasky said. “The new product is further testimony to HEATCON’s dedication to improving aircraft safety through innovative solutions.” Deliveries begin this year, and shipping of the order is


expected to be complete by spring 2012. Along with the portable hot bonders, HEATCON will


also provide the Army with silicone heat blankets, tap ham- mers and vacuum-bagging consumable materials. “The added equipment and materials fit with our phi-


losophy of providing a ‘system solution.’ Everything that is needed for a typical field repair is provided to the technician as a package for performing composite repairs,” HEATCON Director of Business Development Charles Seaton said. ◆
