Tech Thursday #039: An Automated Heat Shrink Cutter!

This is not something everyone needs, but it is something that is fun and cool to build. Maybe not the exact same thing, but some variation thereof… This is a heat shrink cutter. It uses a stepper motors to move the heat shrink through the feeder made of 3D printed wheels. The heat shrink is cut with a pair of scissors that are violently actuated via a pneumatic cylinder. The heat shrink fal... Read More »
