NDC releases new TempTrac Pro for BETA LaserMike in-process wire preheating systems

BETA LaserMike Preheaters from NDC Technologies provide uniform, in-process wire heating to eliminate insulation voids in primary cables. When a wire is preheated for only fractions of a second by a low frequency (50/60 Hz) heat cycle, the heat is unevenly applied to the wire, resulting in hot and cold spots. BETA LaserMike Preheaters solve this problem by using high-frequency preheating that applies the optimum heat cycles to the...
