Cutting force, high volume output and advanced sensor technology make the Kappa machines the number one choice for automated cutting and stripping, even for smaller wire cross-sections. The machines can be used very efficiently thanks to their simple, intuitive control elements.
Wide range of applications
The Kappa product family stands out thanks to its extremely broad processing range. Its intuitive and simple operation and controls allow you to easily set up even difficult-to-process materials, with extremely fast tool-free changeover to new types of wires.
Fast, simple operation
The intuitive TopTouch operating software guides the user through the process logically. During production, operators have maximum transparency thanks to simple adjustment settings for important parameters. This makes the Kappa machines especially intuitive and safe to operate.
Automatic diameter detection
The sensor-enabled wire diameter and cross-section detection makes it possible to set up and parameterize new wire materials at the push of a button. The unique, tool-free measuring principle reduces time-consuming setup to a minimum, while cut losses are also minimized thanks to the optical wire monitoring. The laser sensor continuously checks and immediately detects wire ends and stripping errors during production.
Versatile integration and interfaces
Peripheral devices such as wire feeding systems, markers or deposition units can be integrated easily as standard. Up to four peripheral devices can be controlled depending on the model. The machines also have a USB port for:
– data backup
– software upgrades
– product and wire import as CSV files product and wire import as CSV files
TopWin Kappa – enhanced capabilities
The TopWin Kappa operating software expands the capabilities and functionality of Kappa machines via a PC user interface. Inkjet printing in multiple positions, mirror printing and double-sided labels can be controlled, including everything from pre-printed wires to logo markings and more.
Intelligent economical production
Products with the same wire are produced without cuts and therefore more economically with the help of job lists. Sequence production and part list processing are also possible. Products may be loaded directly into the job list, even while production is running. Changeover times are minimized thanks to automatic sorting of the different products.
Different types of production as required
Depending on the production process, part lists or sequences can be produced as multi-lead sets or as cable harnesses. In addition, TopWin makes it possible to verify materials, detect material changes or print commercial documents.
TopWin Kappa can be easily integrated into networks via the WPCS interface, including, for example, existing user networks. The production-control room software also enables centralized data management, production control and production monitoring.
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.
