Gaming Equipment Manufacturers Turn to Device Technologies for Wire Protection Solutions

Press Release from Device Technologies, Inc.


Inside casino slot machines nationwide, Device Technologies Spring-Fast Grommet Edging protects electric systems.

SOUTHBOROUGH, MA – September 8, 2014 – Inside some of the nation’s most popular mechanized casino slot machine games, the reliability of electrical systems is important, especially to casino owners who expect the proper function of games that enhance the experiences of their customers.

To ensure that wires are properly protected 24/7 within popular slot machine games, Device Technologies, a leader in wire protection solutions, developed Spring-Fast BT Series Grommet Edging, a wire protection product now widely used to safeguard wires from sharp metal edges deep inside a mechanized casino game.

Manufacturers of slot machines have previously applied Spring-Fast BT Series Grommet Edging to slot machines with circular panel cutouts within the top box electrical controls section of a slot machine. This particular part of a slot machine is prone to having very sharp edges that can easily damage wires during the shipment or regular operation of the machine, if left unguarded.

“The manufacturers and owners of casino gaming equipment are looking to minimize downtime and fire risk as well as maintenance,” said Nick Petri, president, Device Technologies. “Our grommet edging provides a simple, easy-to-use solution that enables manufacturers to safeguard the electrical systems of these games ensuring minimal maintenance and continuous, uninterrupted operation.”

A global leader in wire protection solutions, Device Technologies produces Spring-Fast grommet edging and Protect-Fast cable wrap, each offering high performance, flame-retardant quality and reliability to machine manufacturers whose products cannot be compromised by accidental wire crimping and abrasion.

In particular, Spring-Fast grommet offers advantages for wire protection applications:
- Easy to install;
- Locks to unguarded metal edges with finger pressure in seconds;
- Eliminates the use of solvents, adhesives, ancillary materials and volatile organic compound (VOCs) associated with classic Nylon grommet strips; offers improved grommet reliability;
- Designed for high-shock, high-vibration environments.
