Sigma 688 – the latest generation, based on proven technology
This latest generation fully automatic twisting machine allows the production of UTP wires for applications with high data transfer speeds (CAN FD, CAN XL, MOST, Flex-Ray or Automotive Ethernet). The tried-and-tested machine technology has already proved its value in the Sigma 688 ST. Thanks to fully automatic wire end processing, the Sigma 688 offers increased process security and stability. The latest generation EtherCAT modules guarantee optimal processes and maximum flexibility during processing. The two-hand operation, directly on the module, enables the efficient and fast setup of the crimp modules.
Sustainable OEM quality
Quality monitoring systems like visual strip quality monitoring (Q1240) with optional control of the seal position or of defective items ensure OEM-compliant quality. The machine is designed for sustained use and delivers the required performance with a high level of reliability to safeguard production. Support by Komax is also guaranteed long term.
Benefits of the common parts strategy
The identical software and hardware parts within the Sigma product family make the training of operators easier. This, in turn, shortens the training time. The common parts also include peripherals like printing systems, quality control modules, etc. This enables operators to feel more secure and familiar with the equipment, while allowing production managers flexibility in how they assign their employees. The swiveling operator console with touchscreen is perfectly positioned for all processes and offers improved work ergonomics. The graphical user interface helps operators to operate the machine quickly and safely using simple and fast data input.
The common parts strategy within the product family also simplifies spare parts logistics significantly. A single tool case per plant is sufficient for all Sigma machines. For set-up and maintenance work, all work stations are easily accessible through upward-opening hoods and covers. Advantages such as an oil-free compressed air supply and the consistent use of simplified hardware architecture keep maintenance costs and effort to a minimum.
