High Performance Wire Protection Grommet Edging Solutions! For applications that include aerospace, telecom, computers, switching equipment, construction equipment, medical units, and instrumentation, Spring-Fast is the UL94 V-0 edge protection of choice!
Snapping on in seconds, Spring-Fast wire protection grommet edge protection significantly reduces installed costs. By eliminating the need for application of heat or toxic adhesives (and the extra application media that goes along with them) Spring-Fast eliminates associated clean up, Haz-Mat disposal and delays associated with adhesive cure times. Further, it’s two and four-axis flexibility applies easily and securely to single and multi-plane applications as well as to small inside and outside radii.
At Device Technologies, we are not interested in a solution that’s merely “okay”!
Before Spring-Fast wire protection grommet edging, to protect wires from abrasion was the adhesive application of plastic wire protection grommets into through-holes or along various edges.
But, the better solution goes outside the box!
Why clean metal with VOC-laden solvents? Why adhesive bond plastics if it requires training and special application materials and protection garments? Why clamp or ‘fix” it while it cures? Why use the heat gun to activate an adhesive? Why hold up production like this?
We took a step back and asked, why adhesive or heat guns at all?
A snap-on solution—cleaner, better, faster—is what DTi developed. Spring-Fast is better because the whole flow of through-hole protection of cables and wires, fiber and hoses is speeded by a magnitude… and it needs no special handling, no special training, no special gear. When you look at wire protection as a system, as the part plus its procedures plus its assembly time, Spring-Fast cuts costs in half or more!
Spring-Fast wire protection grommet edging side-steps all the mess and assembly intensive issues of adhesive based applications. But it’s also a clean and green solution because it’s the simple answer to the problem. DTi considered not just through-hole or edge protection for product as it goes out the door, but protection that remains viable through the product lifecycle, in the most severe of environments.
Spring-Fast wire protection grommet edging sidesteps long term embrittlement in low humidity environments. It’s chemically resistant to most hydrocarbons, Skydrol immersion and salt spray. Finally, it has outstanding shock and vibration characteristics.
In short, the Spring-Fast wire protection grommet edging design encompasses assembly, field use, and maintenance. When you work with DTi, the problem receives the same systematic approach. Our track records are clean solutions that work not just in the short term, but for the entire product life. Even with products like aircraft, tactical vehicles, utility trucks and rail cars that have long, hard lives, our solutions continue to save money and time…even when it’s time to modify, repair, or overhaul.
Spring-Fast grommet edging was designed for manufacturing flexibility. As a result, we’re prepared to handle the requests and changes our customers need.
