Solid, reliable technology coupled with innovative solutions ensures and increases your company’s ability to add value. The Alpha 530 – the fully automatic wire processing machine for one and two-sided crimping and seal loading – meets this criteria with solid, powerful technology. In addition, double crimp, sleeve insertion, ferrule crimping, strand twisting and tinning can be processed efficiently. The fast setup and conversion times of the Alpha 530 contribute to a high level of productivity. The highest quality requirements are met with its high degree of process capability and retrofittable quality options such as ACD and Q1240.
Attains maximum productivity in no time at all
The work flow is enhanced by short paths for the operator between crimp and wire and cutting stations, all with LED-illuminated work zones. With the help of the optional linear quick wire changer and the quick mobile (MTC) or stationary (STC) terminal changer, the Alpha 530 can be converted even more quickly.
Lightning-quick to convert, parallel setup procedures
Simple, fast setup and conversion approaches allow short travel paths while accelerating the conversion and setup procedures. With the touch screen, keyboard and mouse, the Alpha 530 can be operated in a time-saving and ergonomic fashion. The TopWin software allows the next job to be loaded without halting operations and the material and the tool to be prepared. Indicator lamps and LED-illuminated work zones optimize and expand user guidance.
First-time-right approach – minimal rejects
Top precision, even at maximum system performance and excellent CpK results – the machine processes and the functions for quality assurance are perfectly attuned to each other. The reliable EtherCAT technology guarantees optimum processes.
Quality assurance by Komax
Quality production means quality products: Komax develops and produces the elements of quality assurance itself. The highest requirements of the automotive industry are satisfied. The optional available automatic conductor detector (ACD) reduces operator influence and ensures quality monitoring even for the finest wires. The ACD detects the slightest contact between blade and conductor strands during stripping. Other available options include integrated strip monitoring (Q1240), crimp force analysis (CFA+/CFA) and seal position monitoring (SPM).
Gentle wire guidance
The pneumatic wire straightener enables high feed-in speed and excellent deposit quality even with difficult conductor material. With the actively controlled roller pressure, any changes in the cable containers and draw-in speed are compensated. To avoid indentations on the cables during machine stops, the roller pressure is automatically reduced.
The speed of the deposit conveyor belt is automatically adjusted, assuring neat and gentle wire deposit. The deposit tray features a smooth surface to prevent any cable damage.
Available processing modules
– Crimp modules C1370/C1340
– Seal modules S1440/S1441
– Strip monitoring Q1240
MPCS has been located in the beautiful city of Breda (NL) for several years now. They are the specialist in the design and implementation of wire harnesses, cable assembly, special cables, data cabling and spiral cables. A few months ago they bought a fully automatic wire processing machine from Komax, the Alpha 565, from Smans. We spoke to Ton Kers - managing director of MPCS. MPCS stands for Multi Purpose Cable Solutions.…
