BTX Introduces New EXPAND-ON Sleeving Machine

HAWTHORNE, N.Y. ― June 10, 2008 ― 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 ½ inch to 1 ¾ inch, this new machine reduces the time it takes to apply expandable sleeving from hours to a few minutes, saving installers both time and money.

Typically, technicians apply expandable sleeving by “inch-worming” the sleeving up the length of the cable, which can be very time consuming with 50-foot and 100-foot cable bundles. However, with the EXPAND-ON sleeving machine, one simply loads the sleeving over the tube, pushes the wire bundle through the inside of the tube until it appears out of the other end, then pulls both the sleeving and wire bundle together to the desired length.

“We are pleased to add the EXPAND-ON sleeving machine to our long list of products that provide ease of use for installers and technicians,” said Greg Schwartz, president of BTX. “Applying expandable sleeving to a 100-foot cable can be extremely time consuming and tedious. With the EXPAND-ON sleeving machine, the process is simplified greatly, saving installers and technicians hours of time and substantial cost.”

The EXPAND-ON machine features 3-foot tubes for cable bundles up to 50 feet in length, and 6-foot tubes for cable bundles up to 100 feet in length. With diameters from ½ inch to 1 ½ inch, the tubes can be used with a wide range of expandable sleeving sizes, from ½ inch to 1 ¾ inch in diameter. Depending on the size of the bundle and the diameter of the sleeving, cable bundles much longer than 100 feet can be achieved.

Three different EXPAND-ON kits are available for installers. The Deluxe Kit features a base unit, a stand to mount the machine on, 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.

The EXPAND-ON machine is available now and will be shown for the first time at the BTX booth during InfoComm 2008 in Las Vegas.
