62 MILLION AND COUNTING…

Manufacturing tubes and endcaps that ensure the highest levels of electrical insulation protection to the wiring in electrical motors is, by the very nature of the application and the  numbers of units being produced, a very high volume process. The smallest electrical motor typically requires a minimum of 3 endcaps while larger motors use a minimum of 5.

Sussex based LAMINA DIELECTRICS specialise in the manufacture of heat shrink tubes and endcaps for electrical insulation applications and have developed unique spiral-winding and extrusion technology which uses UL recognised materials for its range of tubes and endcaps. During 2017 Lamina made significant investment in their manufacturing systems which included updating their statistical process control software as part of their ongoing support for their automatic inspection equipment.

Thanks to the reliability of their manufacturing and quality control systems they have just completed the supply of 62,000,000 (62 million) pieces of their Plamar Heat Shrinkable Bullnose caps with zero defects, to one of the World’s largest manufacturers of single phase electric motors. This is one of the largest single orders that Lamina have completed with the 62 million pieces being used for electrical insulation in 20.7 million units (electric motors).
