Tubing, Wire and Fiber Optics

When your wire, cable or fiber optic processing operation requires intense, precisely controlled heat, we can design a system around a member of our Radround® family of infrared heaters. These versatile building blocks have formed the basis for many Proven Solutions®; some of which are illustrated below. Contact us to put our process experience, versatility and design capabilities to work for your application.

Dry

  • Dry and Cure striping and nomenclature ink on insulated wire
  • Dry and Cure color coding inks on fiber optics
  • Dry and Cure saturants (latex, acrylic, urethane) on fiberglass sleeving (dielectric sleeving)
  • Water-based UV curable coatings on fiberglass sleeving prior to UV cure
