Komax Wire becomes the first company in the industry to win a Red Dot Award with the Mira 230 stripping machine. This award is given to products that combine exceptional design with the best in performance.

The Red Dot Award has been a seal of quality in product design since its establishment in 1954. For this year’s award, the international specialist jury received submissions from 54 different countries. These were then individually evaluated over several days, with assessments made based on the criteria of degree of innovation, aesthetic quality, functionality, formal quality, environmental sustainability, ergonomics, durability, symbolic and emotional significance, peripheral equipment and self-explanatory nature.

The Mira 230 is a benchtop machine designed for professional-level full stripping of electrical wires. It is the flagship product of the new Komax Corporate Industrial Design. This integrated approach also incorporates user interface design and ergonomic considerations.

Since last year, every product has been developed in keeping with the new Komax Corporate Industrial Design criteria. This is epitomized by the red “wire gate” in the Mira 230, which serves as both impact protection and as a branding symbol for entering the Komax wire processing world. The machines have a more harmonious look thanks to additional closed surfaces. The dark areas are for processing, while the light areas are for wire handling.

With the new product design, the latest generation of machines conveys Komax brand values such as leadership in innovation and a commitment to premium quality. Every customer will be able to immediately recognize Komax products in the future. This is of course supplemented by optimizations in the area of ergonomics that allow the user to operate the machine more easily and with less strain.

DVC decided to expand their productivity on the pick and place machine.
This means not only a BIG increase on speed, but also a BIG improvement on handling of the NEW Hanwha(Samsung) system.

The Hanwha SM 482 is a flexible mounting platform ideally suited for prototyping, and low – mid volume environments where flexibility, easy programming, quick setups and fast changeovers directly influence profitability.
Thanks to the FULL vision overhead gantry system with 6 -precision placement spindles, the SM 482 achieves the highest placement speed among the same class chip placers. The component recognition will be done in the traveling between the picking and the placing of the component without losing any time! Starting from 01005 components up to 55mm X 55mm(H15mm) and even connectors with a Length of 75mm we have a very large component range. For the larger components we can use the fixed camera also included as a standard. All FULL vision camera systems deliver auto-teach, polygon recognition, and placement angle preview capabilities. (Highest vision Quality)
This platform is compatible with various feeder types, the High Precision/High Speed/Electrically Driven and Intelligent Feeders have proven their benefits! They can automatically align the pickup position between feeders to improve simultaneous pickup rate, automatic pitch recognition and able to set the part supply speed to improve the stability of the feeding (High Speed and Very Stable component feeding).
The user friendly T- Solutions Software converts various CAD and ASCII data into placement data. Programming will be Minimized and the Productivity can be Optimized. The standard part library will be updated by the auto teaching of components. And make Offline, Efficient and Flexible Programming possible.
We will have a personalised demo/training with our local Hanwha(Samsung) distributor Smans NV. They have provided us with excellent local support, thanks to them.
