Flexing of lead wires in an application may present a tough environment for

a cartridge heater.  Packaging, heat sealing and other processes that require

a cycling of a heated bar or platen will stress a heater termination.  In the

Watt-Flex® cartridge heater construction, the wire is crimped into two hollow

stainless pins extending from the end of the heater.  If the flexing is concentrated

at this point, the wire will fail prematurely.

 

One excellent way to address this problem is with the use of a Clip Support.  It

is a small fixture that is added to the terminal end of the heater to simply displace

the point of flexing. 

                

The Clip Support is braised onto the heater and crimps over the insulation

of the wire.  There is a teflon tube inserted under the crimp to stiffen the assembly

and reduce stress on the wire.  The Clip Support can be provided in a straight

or right angle configuration with the clip over or under the wire, a feature which

muste specified.

A WELL PLANNED LIFE???? Two women met for the first time since graduating

from high school. One asked the other, "You were always so organized in school.

Did you manage to live a well planned life? "


"Yes," said her friend. "My first marriage was to a millionaire; my second marriage

was to an actor; my third marriage was to a preacher; and now I'm married to an

undertaker."


Her friend asked, "What do those marriages have to do with a well planned life?"


"One for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, and four to go."
