The shrinker elements attain their maximum operating temperature of 1500°F in approximately four seconds. Four sizes of elements are available from 0.5-in. OD to 3-in. to accommodate different sizes of work pieces. The elements plug into the heat sinks for changing and replacing. Heat to the element is controlled by a variable temperature control on the handpiece, so that only the correct amount of heat is applied to the heat-shrink material.
It weighs 10 oz. and can be used hand-held or in the stand provided with the lock-on button engaged. It is CE marked and meets all applicable EU safety standards. For production environments, a bench model is also available. This unit uses three pairs of elements in line to shrink larger areas simultaneously. The material is held in place by two material rests that are adjustable. Each set of elements is independently temperature controlled and any combination of element sizes can be used.
