High flexibility for your future requirements

High flexibility for customer-specific processes

  • Up to seven process modules
  • Conductor cross sections from 0.13 – 6 mm²
  • Cross sections up to 10 mm² possible on request
  • Extremely flexible – even complex processes like dual core wire processing, ultrasonic compaction, welding, etc., can be realized

Outstanding productivity and quality

  • High production output due to innovative machine and process module design
  • Comprehensive quality monitoring with CFA+, CFA, ACD, Q1240
  • High-performance machine parts with long service life (Alpha 550 platform)
  • Real-time data exchange of all quality and production data via Komax HMI

Developed for your future needs

  • Machine setup and configuration can be easily adjusted or extended
  • The platform offers plenty of space for new applications
  • Easy training of employees thanks to the clearly structured user interface (HMI) 

The Alpha 565 is a flexible and expandable wire processing machine with seven process modules. In addition to its core functions of two-sided crimp and seal insertion, the Alpha 565 also offers plenty of space for special processing, e.g. application of ferrules or MIL crimps, tinning, twisting, solidifying, ultrasonics, welding and much more. The conductor cross section range of 0.13 mm² to 6 mm² covers all common requirements. The proven Alpha 550 technology provides the perfect base for integrating customer-specific applications easily and effectively.

Customer-specific and individual

Thanks to the different process modules, complex and individual configurations of up to seven stations are possible. Programming of customer-specific processes is available on request.

C1370 / C1360 / C1340 crimp module for maximum productivity

The efficient user guidance and wire positioning directly on the module allows the shortest setup and changeover times. CFA+ guarantees the highest quality with minimal rejects. The robust crimp module design delivers extraordinary repeat accuracy. Features like the stroke and split cycle can be programmed easily. The C1370/C1360 adjusts the crimp height automatically during programming.

Seal module S1441 for maximum flexibility

The module automatically fits wires with conventional seals and mini seals. The combination of precision mechanics and seal position monitoring functionality on the Q1240 quality module guarantees a high degree of process reliability and maximum productivity. The module can be simply and quickly switched from one seal variety to another. 

Q1240 optical quality monitoring

The Q1240 quality assurance module runs an optical check on the strip quality and automatically rejects defective products. Seal monitoring is also available (connectible under license) for checking
the seal position and orientation. Product quality can be traced end to end via statistics, image capture and network feedback.

X1582 twisting module

Twisted strand ends are the ideal basis for carrying out tinning rapidly and with pinpoint accuracy. The X1582 twisting module twists stripped wire ends in a wide range of dimensions. The twisting process is very precise, ensuring that no strands are damaged – even for extremely thin wires.

X1585 fluxing/tinning module

The X1585 fluxing/tinning module for Komax fully automated machines enables versatile lead-free tinning of strand ends. Constant tin flow ensures consistent quality. The precisely adjustable speed and temperature guarantee a high level of process reliability.

DC double gripper module

Using a sophisticated rotary gripper, two wires are brought together and stored temporarily on the fully automatic wire rocessing machine. The wire gripper then takes both wires (either horizontally or vertically, depending on the setting) and swivels them over to the crimp module.

AEH-G / AEH-LS ferrule modules

Automatic insertion of taped ferrules and single ferrules on stripped wires. 

mci 792 sleeve module

The mci 792 sleeve module inserts different types of sleeves reliably and efficiently on one device. An application set allows the module to be changed over quickly to other sleeve types.
