The Future of Fusion Debuts During Fall Tradeshows

September is a very exciting month at McElroy as we gear up to attend two of our largest tradeshows.  The new TracStar® iSeries machines will be highlighted at both.  The team will start in Las Vegas for MINExpo INTERNATIONAL® 2021 September 13th through September 15th, then move to Louisville to attend The Utility Expo in Kentucky September 28th through September 30th.

MINExpo INTERNATIONAL® 2021 will be the first tradeshow appearance for the new TracStar® iSeries since it was launched in 2020.  The machine will be on display inside the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center at Booth 2153.  Since we have an indoor booth, our Engineering Team has devised a way to connect our iSeries machine to an electronic hydraulic power unit to give attendees the full experience.

You will experience the new intelligent software, keypads, and the Fusion Guide control system, which allows for three levels of operator control, ranging from manual to fully automatic.  Other advancements include improved machine diagnostics, a collision-avoidance system, smart keypads to guide users through the process, and updated paddle levers for precise carriage control.

You’ll also get to interact with our new DataLogger® 7, which now comes fully integrated into our TracStar iSeries line.  Speak with our on-site experts to learn more about the importance of documenting your fusion joints and see how easy it is to collect, and analyze your joint data.

New to the pipe fusion industry? We are making it possible for you to fuse pipe at the booth.  Our McElroy University instructors will be on hand to walk you through the process as you experience the ease of using our machines. Plus you can also learn more about our educational courses available online or in-person.

From Las Vegas to Louisville: Showcasing the iSeries in Kentucky

Following our visit to Vegas, we’re packing up and heading east to Kentucky for The Utility Expo (formerly ICUEE) at the end of September.  Traditionally you would find us in Lot K, but this year we’re near a newly created area called The Jobsite, which is being turned into an actual construction site.  Look for us at Booth E124 which can be found between Lots K and E.

We’re featuring the new TracStar® iSeries, DataLogger® 7, and the PolyHorse®.  Since we are outside, we plan to demonstrate the iSeries machine in all three FusionGuide levels, from manual to automatic.  McElroy University will also be offering an interactive experience where you can learn more about our featured training courses, plus fuse pipe!

Team McElroy looks forward to seeing you during this action-packed tradeshow season!
