The Willard system offers a proven and respected range of spatulas (also known as tacking irons) and lining irons, designed and manufactured to the highest standards to provide many years of reliable service. They are in use in leading professional conservation studios worldwide. All models feature electronic sensors to provide accurate and consistent temperature at the tip, or across the sole plate.
The control unit is the heart of the system and its unique design is capable of providing accurate and reliable service over many years. A control unit is needed to operate the Spatulas and Irons.
There are two models: Standard, to regulate spatulas only, or Universal which regulates all spatulas and all irons. Both models will accept the separately available temperature display.
The standard control unit enables the temperature to be conveniently set on the display by adjusting the large control dial. It automatically switches full power to the heating element quickly on and off to provide an accurate temperature. A red diode illuminates when heat is being delivered to the tool.
The Universal Control Unit is required for lining irons; 6E, 7E, 8E and 9E. It is also suitable for all Willard heated spatulas. Temperature is set with the large dial on the front of the housing. A wall mounted variant, supplied complete with a built in temperature monitor is also available.
