This machine provides fully automatic, self-feeding, one, two, or three color stripes. As of April 1975, MIL-C-39029 calls for color code striping on all connector contacts purchased for Military use. After coding the contacts are automatically taken from the index table and fed through the drying track resulting in a touch dry contact. The time required to completely dry the paint depends on the type of paint used.
