Fully integrated tube marking module, flexible, practical, resistant

Attractive alternative to inkjet markers

  • Tube Marking Module offers high abrasion resistance thanks to thermal transfer printing.
  • High contrast is ensured for good legibility regardless of the conductor color.

Simple and fast wire installation in the control cabinet

  • Labeling with Tube Marking Module allows the marking to be rotated and moved on the wire.
  • This is particularly advantageous in control cabinet construction when wires have to be shortened and markings aligned to the front.

High flexibility and fast handling

  • The most varied types of tubes (flat, oval, round) can be processed.
  • The material change (exchange of thermal transfer ribbon and tube material) takes less than five minutes.
  • Sequence production with different tube lengths and labeling is possible.

 

The M1650 Tube Marking Module marks wires fully automatically with a wire tube that is pushed on. In this process, a tube is printed on from a roller using the thermal transfer process, cut to the correct length with V-blades, and pushed onto the wire using a gripper system. The module can be converted for different tube types. It is designed for integration with Zeta series machines.

Unique, fully integrated Tube Marking Module

In contrast to many stand-alone solutions on the market, the M1650 Tube is completely integrated into the fully automated wire harness production of the Zeta 630/640/650 and can be controlled from its control center. This integration means a considerable time saving and ensures the highest quality. Possible mislabeling is minimized and staff can focus on the important work of laying wires.

 

A further milestone in control cabinet construction

The M1650 Tube Marking Module was developed by our engineers as an application for special customer needs and is now going into serial production. You too can benefit from Komax expertise and the high level of development work done by our engineers.
