Area of application
The two crimp modules mci 711 and mci 721 are ideal process modules for Komax fully automatic wire processing machines with first generations TopWin.
The maximum crimp force is 20kN. The layout of both modules permits the use of all common commercial applicators.
With the mci 721 crimp module, the crimp height can be programmed in TopWin, enabling ultra short conversion times. The module is powered by a brushless servomotor. A built-in linear measuring system allows fine positioning of the module carriage in 0.01mm (0.00039in.) increments. All parameters for the mci 721 are set in the TopWin software. Both modules, the mci 711 and mci 721, are identical in construction from a mechanical standpoint. Both have an MCI interface. All options can be used on either of the modules.
The mci 711 and mci 721 crimp modules are set up in a very user friendly manner from the TopWin software. The OMI (Operator Machine Interface) has only two buttons and a selector wheel so maximum user convenience is assured. The module, accessories, integrated crimp force monitoring and special functions like split cycle, creep speed mode, etc. can all be controlled from the OMI.
The crimp tool quick-change system ensures fast, convenient changing of tools on the module.
Both modules feature integrated crimp force monitoring in the form of a CFA (Crimp Force Analyzer). Two built-in piezo-ceramic sensors act as the pickup units. The 3-zone analysis ensures extremely reliable good/bad detection with detailed error information. The crimp curve is displayed on a graph on the OMI.
On the mci 721, the crimp force is depicted as a function of the tool movement.
A certified calibration tool for absolute force calibration is available for both presses. CFA testing equipment is available as an accessory for periodic testing of the press and the CFA.
