Consistent high productivity and flexibility with maximum precision are the requirements fully automated wire processing has to meet, both today and in the future. The Alpha 550 – the latest fully automatic wire processing machine for two-sided seal insertion – meets these requirements across the entire spectrum with revolutionary technology. The Alpha 550 can yield crucial competitive advantages with its unmatched unit cost performance, flexible production output and superb quality. The machine comes with an ACD automatic conductor detector as a standard feature.
At high speed for top unit cost performance
With its high processing speed, the Alpha 550 achieves the best unit cost performance in its class. All system components are designed for top performance. The processes are perfectly coordinated. For example is the conveyor belt speed in the new deposit system automatically adjusted to ensure consistent optimum throughput.
Ultra-fast conversion for maximum productivity
Simple, fast setup and conversion approaches allow short travel paths while accelerating the procedures. With the touch screen, keyboard and mouse, the Alpha 550 can be operated in a time-saving and ergonomic fashion. The machine 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 for almost no rejects
Perfectly synchronized machine processes and quality assurance and monitoring functions ensure top precision and excellent CpK results. Processes are optimum thanks to the reliable EtherCAT technology.
Powerful servomotors position the swivel arm with unrivaled repeat accuracy. The mechanical and electronic components are well-protected from dirt and ambient influences and also suitable for environments with high temperatures and moisture.
Various options, such as the linear quick wire changer and the stationary (STC) or mobile (MTC) terminal changer for fast crimp tool changes, enable optimal flexible operation within the stable system.
Customer-specific and individualized
The different process modules make it possible to have complex and individualized configurations with up to four stations. Customer-specific processes can be programmed on request.
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.
