The aim of automated shrinking of shrinking tubes is to reduce processing time and increase quality.


Heat Shrinking

Shrinking tubes are used to protect and isolate the terminals and welded junctions of the harness. What are the benefits in using heat shrinking systems instead of using a manual process?

  • Time saving: During the shrinking process, the operator is free to perform other tasks.
  • Process control: Reliability and consistency of the process by monitoring and controlling the system’s temperature, shrinking time and position of the sleeve.
  • Safer: The operator is protected against injuries.

The ideal hot-air basic solution for simple line panel applications!

The STCS-L is a machine for processing heat shrink tubes, based on hot air devices. It´s designed for line panel applications and can process one part at a time. All controls and interfaces are integrated in a compact box, which includes the hot air tool and clamps.

Customizable shrinking chamber.

STCS-LC – Shrink tunnel

The STCS-LC (Longitudinal Conveyor) is a heat shrink system based on infrared resistors, which is able to process several and different types of parts at the same time. Different from any other, the LC guarantees flexibility by shrinking virtually almost everything. From normal splices to special applications, one single machine can do it all.
