Kappa 350 – Cutting and stripping machine 

  • High performance 
  • Simple, flexible operation with touch interface 
  • Innovative sensors to aid in setup and to monitor processing 
  • Minimal wire loss thanks to sensor monitoring 
  • Simple integration of delivery and deposit equipment 
  • TopWin interface 
  • Networking in company network

The Kappa 350 belong to the latest generation of automatic cutting and stripping machines. This model is compelling in the extremely broad range of processing they cover. With the simple, flexible touch controls, even difficult to process materials can be set up quickly and easily.
The conversion to new types of cables can be done without tools so it is ultra-fast.

Function

This powerhouse with its double-blade principle is designed for processing round conductors with a cross section of up to 120mm² and a maximum outside diameter of up to 35mm. The powerful belt drive ensures gentle processing across the entire cross section range. The sensors are combined with a length measuring encoder to provide optimum process monitoring and accuracy. Zero-cuts are automatically minimized.

Sensors

The conductor diameter is automatically detected by a sensor using an inductive measuring approach. This feature greatly shortens setup and changeover and reduces operat¬ing errors. Laser and a CCD line optically measure the outside cable diameter and check that the cable is present during processing.

Periphery and interfaces

The integration of wire feeding systems, printers, active deposition units, etc. is standardized and easy. Special attention was paid to the integration and control of inkjet systems. Data backup, updates, import of CSV cable and product data are handled over a USB stick.

Software

TopTouch is an intuitive touch screen user software modeled on the TopWin structure found in automatic crimping machines. With the integrated user prompts, Kappas are extremely easy to operate.

TopWin Kappa expands the capabilities and functions of the fully automatic Kappa cutting and stripping machines. The PC-based control software allows inkjet marking, sequence production, and part list processing. The products to be produced may be loaded directly to the wire processing machine or via a job list.

The optional interface WPCS (Wire Processing Communication Stand-ard) allows Komax machines to be networked under TopWin. With this open interface, the machine is easy to integrate into existing production sequences.

TopNet is a clearly arranged mana-gement software with functions for the centralized creation and management of parts, articles and jobs that help you to optimize your production operations.

TopConvert can be used to convert already existing job and article lists to WPCS format. These data may then be processed directly by the cutting and stripping machine.
