How can you load cut lists into your wire processing machines? Wire processing firms are familiar with this problem. In crimp to crimp and cut and strip applications, the question arises: how can you load cut lists that are often in electronic form as CSV files (Comma Separated Values) in your production machines? Raw data often comes in different formats. For example, one customer may specify the cable type in column B and the other customer may put together the cable type from cross section and color. As a result, the data is defined in different columns.
This is where TopConvert enters the picture. TopConvert can be used for converting CSV files into WPCS (Wire Processing Communication Standard) format and can be installed in any office PC. The customer defines his converter himself with the aid of an Excel specs sheet. Once it is created, the converter automatically converts the customer's cut lists into WPCS files, which are then read by the production machines. As an alternative, data transport can also be initiated at the press of a button. The user can define as many converters as he wishes and thus process cut lists in the widest variety of formats.
On request, Komax can do the complete configuration of the converter to the customer's specifications (application).
- All fully automatic crimping machines must be equipped with TopWin and WPCS.
- Excel table with production data must be saved as an ASCII table (*.csv).
