Benchtop crimpers are used when a fully automatic machine is not an option for one of the following reasons:
a) Processing of multi-conductor cables
b) Reworking of wire harnesses in production
c) Small batch sizes or test series
The Delta 220, 240 and 260 programmable crimping machines are designed for applications with high demands in terms of processing quality and quality verification. They enable efficient and precise stripping, seal placement and crimping in a single process, with integrated CFA and CFA+ crimp force monitoring. Crimping machines are used for processing small batch sizes and special orders, multi-conductor cables and pre-assembled wires with connectors, and components that are not suitable for automatic wire draw-in.
The Delta 220 can be equipped with a programmable stripping unit, bad crimp cutter and suction. The crimp height is adjusted manually. The Delta 240 and 260 offer automatic crimp height adjustment; the latter also has a seal placement module.
Focus on precision and quality
Quality is a top priority for the Deltas. Crimp height and pull-out force are checked and learned before each order; on request at the central measuring station (QCenter).
The crimp force is evaluated in each cycle to eliminate errors (see CFA box). The bad crimp cutter prevents faulty parts from being processed further and any subsequent costs from being incurred. All settings can be accessed from the memory; only the crimp height is set manually on the Delta 220. The precise and robust mechanics also contribute to the high quality. CFA values can be stored at a central measuring station (QCenter). The KomaxPrint software can be used to print reports with the CFA results.
The linking of the stripping, crimping and, in the case of Delta 260, the seal insertion processes in a single work step helps to increase efficiency.
The quick-change system for the applicator and the programmed settings enable the shortest possible changeover times to be achieved.
Stripping and terminal strip remnants are collected in a drawer. If desired, a suction unit can be used to transport the waste into an external container.
One processing position for everything
The Delta series has one processing position, i.e. the wire is not moved, which is particularly advantageous for pre-assembled wires with connectors, sensors or other components.
The crimp force can be monitored using both Komax CFA and Komax CFA+. The parameters are identical to those for the crimp modules on fully automatic machines.
CFA and CFA + are important elements of quality assurance and detect, among other things:
– Missing strands
– Incorrect conductor cross-sections
– Insulation in the conductor crimp
Brilliant color display with optimized interaction
The new Komax HMI Delta user interface impresses with its clear graphics, enhanced user guidance, language selection and context-sensitive help function.
Exchange of quality data with central measuring station (QCenter)
The Komax REST-based standard protocol MIKO provides the basis for connecting to a control system or for implementing special solutions such as color detection or material verification.

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.…
