BTX introduces the Expand-On, a new patent-pending machine that eliminates the tedious process of applying expandable sleeving to a cable bundle. Designed to work with cable bundles of 50 feet, 100 feet, and much longer, and accommodating sleeving ranging from 1⁄2 inch to 1 3⁄4 inches, this new machine reduces the time it takes to apply expandable sleeving from hours to a few minutes, saving installers both time and money. Installers simply load the sleeving over the tube, push the wire bundle through the inside of the tube until it appears out of the other end, and then pull both the sleeving and wire bundle together to the desired length.
Three different Expand-On kits are available for installers. The Deluxe Kit features a base unit, a stand on which to mount the machine, and a full set of tubes. The Complete Kit includes a base unit that can be mounted to a standard bench and a full set of tubes. The Single Kit consists of the base unit and the most popular 1-inch tube.
