Small, fast, and stick-free

Low-current, high-performance, closed-loop staking

nanoSTAKE™ is a revolutionary new staking technology that uses a proprietary Smart Respond™ heating technology to rapidly heat and cool a punch to stake plastic.

This technology is patent pending.

The nanoSTAKE Process

The low‑current, high‑performance heater heats the punch to a programmed melt temperature in seconds and forms the boss into a stake. Once the punch reaches the correct height, it rapidly cools to a programmed release temperature and retracts with no sticking.

Heat

The Smart Respond™ heating technology heats the punch to a programmed melt temperature in seconds.

Form

The low-current, high-performance heater maintains melt temperature as the punch forms the boss into a stake.

Cool

Once the punch reaches the correct height, it rapidly cools to a programmed release temperature.

Retract

The cooled module retracts with no sticking.

Introducing nanoSTAKE

nanoSTAKE™ is a revolutionary new staking technology that uses a proprietary Smart Respond™ heating technology to rapidly heat and cool a punch to stake plastic.

The low‑current, high‑performance heater heats the punch to a programmed melt temperature in seconds and forms the boss into a stake. Once the punch reaches the correct height, it rapidly cools to a programmed release temperature and retracts with no sticking. nanoSTAKE uses low current (1.5 A) which allows for quick and easy connections.

nanoSTAKE Benefits

Z

Effortless quality assurance

nanoSTAKE uses Smart Respond, a low‑current, high‑performance heating technology with an embedded temperature sensor for true closed-loop process control. An optional position sensor controls the stake height.

Easy and quick connections

nanoSTAKE only uses 1.5 A of current at 120 VAC. This low current allows for small wires and small, easily manageable connections.

No sticking

nanoSTAKE’s Smart Respond heating technology is rapid and responsive. It heats up and cools down in seconds to ensure no plastic sticks to the punch.

Fits in tight spaces

nanoSTAKE is small and compact so it fits in tight spaces.
