Schleuniger releases new automatic crimping machine for faster production
April 6, 2020 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Schleuniger has released the CrimpCenter 64 SP, a fully automatic crimping machine that offers eight to 14 per cent faster production over its predecessor.
The newly developed Dual ToolingShuttle quick-change system allows operators to prepare for a new job while production is still running and change applicators and terminals in 30 seconds.
The CrimpCenter 64 SP offers new innovations: Application-specific default values for process parameters, automatic control of the pneumatic pressure of feeding belts and gripper systems, a straightening unit and a newly developed roller design for very thin, demanding cables.
A newly developed deposit gripper system ensures perfectly aligned production batches for easy removal.
Among the other new features are the optional process-monitoring sensor system SmartDetect monitors the complete stripping process in real time, detects contacts between the stripping blade and the wire and automatically finds the best stripping parameters for the wire to be processed.
The new WireCam (available in Q2 2020) ensures — without loss of performance in crimp and seal applications — traceable production quality, precise repeatability of desired results as well as monitoring of stripping results and seal positions with 100 per cent inline quality control.
With the integrated CFM 20 crimp-force monitoring system, which tracks signals during the crimping process with a sensor and compares them with the reference signal, you can measure, compare and monitor up to four signatures for multi-stamped terminal applications.
