New generation benchtop cut and strip machine from Contax
Jan 24, 2008
Available from production automation system specialist, Contax Ltd, is the new generation Komax Kappa 330 series benchtop cut and strip machines. The new, restyled, Kappa 330 is the first machine of its kind to provide fully automatic set-up. Built on a host of new technological advancements, it provides greater flexibility coupled with faster and more powerful performance.
Compared to the current Kappa 235, the new Kappa 330 is able to process a larger range of sizes and variety of different materials. As all the wire outside diameter, and inside conductor diameter, measuring is done automatically it offers very rapid setup and changeover, leading to higher throughput and more economical use of product.
At the heart of the Kappa 330 are new intelligent sensors for the automatic detection of the conductor diameter. Until now, benchtop cut and strip machines have relied on the accurate measurement of the wires. The machine would then be programmed and set-up to cut the insulation without damaging the conductor.
However, using the new Kappa 330 series machines, any gauge of wire from 0.22 mm to 35 mm squared with an outside diameter of up to 16 mm, can be automatically measured by the sensor. Whilst new motor and power control systems ensure very fast acceleration speeds of up to 4.0 m/s.
