A NEW ASSEMBLY MACHINE THAT INSERTS A SMALL PLASTIC COVER INTO THE BACK OF THEIR PRE-ASSEMBLED INSULATED FLAG TERMINAL TO MEET THE UL 749 DISHWASHER STANDARD IS BEING INTRODUCED BY ETCO INCORPORATED OF BRADENTON, FLORIDA.

 The ETCO Closed-Back Insulated Flag Applicator is a bench top machine that inserts a small plastic cover into the back of an insulated flag terminal after it is processed in an applicator and attached to a wire.  Producing a compact connector that complies fully with the UL 749 dishwasher standard, this pneumatic assembly machine inserts the plastic covers from a reel.

Featuring semi-automatic operation, the ETCO Closed-Back Insulated Flag Applicator can process up to 2000 parts-per-hour.  The plastic inserts are made of fire-retardant nylon and the closed-back flag connectors are more compact, secure, and less time-consuming to assemble then plastic clamshell add-ons which snap around an entire connector, claims the firm.

 

 

 

The ETCO Closed-Back Insulated Flag Applicator is offered for sale or lease.  Price quotations and specifications are available upon request.
