Kappa 322 – Cutting and stripping machine

  • Broader processing range with a diversity of options and solutions
  • Innovative sensors to aid in setup of cables
  • Intuitive, flexible and simple touch-screen operation
  • Simple integration of upstream and downstream equipment
  • TopWin for connecting inkjet, part list production and network solutions

Power, performance and unique types of sensors are the three key features of the fully automatic Kappa cutting and stripping machines. All machine types in the Kappa product family are compelling in the extremely broad range of processing they cover. Thanks to the simple, flexible controls, even difficult to process materials can be set up quickly and easily. The changeover to new types of cables can be done without tools so it is ultra-fast.


The real standout feature of the Kappa 322 is the unique patented swivel technique utilized in the wire drive axes. Two different processing positions can be approached with this feature. The machine is designed for a wide variety of special applications or the separation and processing of inside wires in multi-pole cables.


The cross section is automatically detected by a sensor, so new cable material can be set up and parameterized at the press of a button. Setup used to be extremely time-consuming. This unique measuring approach reduces this procedure to an absolute minimum.

Periphery and interfaces

The integration of wire feeding systems, markers, deposition units, and other peripheral devices is standardized and easy. Up to six peripheral devices can be controlled parallel to the main system depending on the machine model. Data backup, updates, import of CSV cable and product data are handled over a USB stick.

TopTouch is an intuitive touch screen user software modeled on the TopWin structure found in automatic crimping machines. With the integrated user prompts, Kappa’s 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 Standard) allows Komax machines to be networked under TopWin. With this open interface, the machine is easy to integrate into existing production sequences.
KomaxCAO is a clearly arranged management software with functions for the centralized creation and management of parts, products 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.


The Komax Kappa line can be customized with various accessories to meet specific customer needs.
