Intuitive user interface with TopTouch for easy operation

The TopTouch user interface can be used to set the parameters of the semi-automatic twisting unit. The user-friendly software guides you through the process.

Outstanding twisting performance for high demands

The bt 188 T twists wires at a speed of up to 350 pieces an hour – and with high quality to meet all requirements in the automotive industry.

Optional multiple twisting for precise impact formation

The flat grippers can also be used to twist three or four wires precisely multiple times. The result is impressively uniform lay length and high reproducibility.

Optional fully automatic spot taping unit exclusively on the bt 188 T

The integrated spot taping unit enables both ends of the cable to be spot taped simultaneously. The module thus protects against untwisting with spot tape made of fabric or PVC tape.
