Short changeover times
Thanks to a range of mechanical and ergonomic optimizations, the changeover time has been reduced significantly in comparison to predecessor models. For example, a swivel arm with a loading and unloading position is available for feeding wire in and out. The parameters for the prefeeder (e.g. speed, acceleration) can be saved in the main machine’s HMI controller. Wire end detection ensures that the machine can be run until empty without any problem. Wire remnants are minimized.
Numerous technical details ensure failure-free operation and therefore high output: The infeed speed can be directly adjusted on the prefeeder to the optimal level for the wire container and is not set lower as a preventive measure. It also synchronizes with the wire processing machine and ensures optimal output. The large wire storage system enables production to continue running uninterrupted if there is a fault. There is also a by-pass option if the prefeeder is not needed for a job.
