In most machines, changeover times offer the biggest potential for optimization. With options like the manual wire selector and/or the quick-change system for crimping tools, materials and tools can be prepared for the next job while the machine is running.
Jobs can also be recorded and edited with TopWin while the machine is running. The changeover time is displayed, providing an easy method for optimizing the workflow.
Maximum quality control
Crimp-height measurement and fully automatic pull-out force measurement are integrated in the process sequence. Optional material-change detection and the optional barcode scanner help to prevent materials from getting mixed up.
The processes are constantly checked against the specified values during production with functions that monitor crimp force, seals, splices, end of wire supply, and length. Any cables with processing defects are removed and an appropriate number of cables are post-processed automatically to replace them.
The drive unit for the blade head is placed underneath, giving the machine a neat and ergonomic layout. All processing stations have safety covers that open vertically for optimum access, and application-specific parts like applicators and contact rolls can be changed without tools. Controls are placed at decentralized positions, allowing the necessary machine functions to be triggered during setup. All setting and adjustment procedures can be controlled from the TopWin graphical user interface in the operator’s choice of over 20 different languages.
