The latest generation of wire processing machines allows high rates of acceleration and speed. This feature places big demands on the feeding of the wire being processed. Komax has a range of wire feeding systems to ensure the optimum solution for your specific application.
The F1150 feeder is the latest motorized feed system in the Komax series for automatic and low-strain processing of cable reels weighing up to 300kg. Thanks to its robust design and powerful drive, this feeder gently and effortlessly processes wires in a reliable process, be they thin flexible stranded wires or thicker cables sensitive to tensile strain, such as coaxial cables. The system is available in two versions to accommodate wires with two different outside diameters: 18mm and 35mm.
With its highly compatible control system, the F1150 can be integrated seamlessly into a complete wire processing line and greatly contributes to high production output. The setup time is reduced to a minimum thanks to the ingenious setup system that has axes motorized in all directions and that is controlled from a manual remote control.
