Strands crimped and tinned

We are expanding crimp technology at phg with investment in an additional modern, fully automatic crimping machine. This machine's primary application area is the fully automatic processing of flexible individual strands in the cross-sectional ranges from 0.05 mm²/AWG30 to 2.5 mm²/AWG14 with the integrated processes of cutting to length, stripping, and alterna-tively crimping or tinning the ends. Strand lengths beginning at 15 mm are already possible here.

The line is fed directly from the barrels into the machine. Programmable servomotors can be used to optimally adjust the machine's parameters to each of the materials being processed. Crimp-height measurement and crimp-strength monitoring among other things are integrated to verify quality and ensure process safety.
