Flag Terminal Applicator From ETCO Produces UL 749 Compliant Insulated Connectors

BRADENTON, FL--(Marketwire - Jul 27, 2011) - ETCO Incorporated is introducing 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.

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 than 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.

About ETCO Incorporated

ETCO Incorporated was founded in 1947 as Electric Terminal Corporation. The original company produced wall plug blades in strip form for attachment by the customer on a patented air operated machine. ETCO still produces wall plug blades, although the production speeds have increased from 175 parts per minute to as fast as 3,000 parts per minute. Today, the company's product line has expanded into thousands of different products; both catalog and custom terminal products designed and tooled for their customer's individual needs.

ETCO's proprietary terminal products now represent about half their sales and the company is divided into several divisions representing distinct product areas. The reason for this is so that each division can respond to the customer with the care and concern of a small manufacturer while retaining the resources of a larger manufacturer. This formula has worked well and the ETCO philosophy of "old values and customer service" has propelled the company to a position of industry leadership.
