Bradenton, FL (PRWEB) August 15, 2012
A new, air-operated, one-stroke, insulated wire terminal applicator for producing fire-retardant insulated disconnects with no waste or loss of speed is being introduced by ETCO Incorporated of Bradenton, Florida.
The ETCO Insulated Mighty-Mini Wire Terminal Applicator is an air-operated unit that applies the “F” crimp to a disconnect on the down stroke and adds a fire-retardant nylon insulator on the way back up. Since the insulator is pre-loaded onto the terminals in strip form, there is no need for a nylon carrier and this applicator can produce up to 5,000 terminations per hour.
Featuring a one-piece cast body and an extra thick base for rigidity, the ETCO Insulated Mighty-Mini Wire Terminal Applicator is designed for use with automatic equipment and manual bench presses such as Tyco/AMP, Artos, and Komax with wire up to 9 AWG. Produced to UL and NEMA specifications and supplied in strip form, these insulated disconnects are rated to 150°.
The ETCO Insulated Mighty-Mini Wire Terminal Applicator is priced from $2100.00 plus the cost of tooling; with 4 to 6 week delivery.
