Wire store WT Tube 12

Fast and straightforward conversion to work with different wires? No problem – the wire store WT Tube 12 possesses a state-of-the-art wire routing system including a wire infeed block with RFID memory.
The wire store is simply docked to the Wire Terminal WT C via a quick-change system. WT Tube 12 is a modular and space-saving system – six wire drums are stored on each of the two levels.

Up to 36 wires without retooling

With the fully automatic wire processing machine Wire Terminal WT C, wire assembly and labelling is a fully automatic process. An optimised and fully integrated servo-controlled crimper solution, tailored to the application in hand, enables wires with different wire end ferrule lengths and with cross-sections from 0.5 - 6 mm² to be produced without retooling.
fri221300695_Drahtkennzeichnung_ip

Wire labelling and assembly

The Wire Terminal WT C can be equipped with a black, white or light-blue marking system for origin/destination labelling on the wires. Vibratory bowl feeders ensure a reliable supply of the required wire end ferrules and allow simple refilling with loose ferrules.

Sorting on wire rails and in chain bundles

The assembled wires are passed to the removal unit and sorted onto a maximum of 15 wire rails on a project-specific basis – the wire rails are identified using the latest RFID technology and labelled for the particular project via the integrated label printer. In addition to project-specific sorting to the integrated storage system, assembled wires can also be output as chain bundles.

Fully automated wire processing machine
Wire Terminal WT C

With the compact fully automatic wire processing machine Wire Terminal WT C, your wire assembly

becomes efficient and cost-effective. The fully automated process handles up to 36 different wires

with cross-sections from 0.5 mm² to 6 mm² without retooling. This includes cutting to length, infinitely

variable full and partial stripping, crimping of the wire end ferrules and labelling.

 

An optional printer unit enables the wires to be labelled in black, white or light-blue. The similarly

optional rail sorting system can accommodate up to 2,100 assembled wires. There is furthermore an

option to pass the wires to the downstream process steps as chain bundles.

 

The job management tool RiPanel Processing Center provides for consistent networking, from the

engineering stage to the production processes, with additional data import options, e.g. txt files.

All production data can be imported via interfaces and processed with the aid of EPLAN Smart Wiring.

Manual wire list specification is also possible.
