The Alpha 358 automatic crimping machine is designed for two-sided crimping and seal loading of wires up to 985 in. on a machine just 158 in. in length. Coiling and binding wires right on the machine frees up substantial floor space while assuring less possibility of damaged connector parts. The coiler speed is synchronized with the wire drive while the tension on the conductor is constantly monitored. Gentle coiling is attained without the need for lengthy deposit units. The Alpha 358 is designed to be equipped with the latest seal applicator from the company, the MCI 765. The unit carries a seal position measurement, which monitors the seal position on the wire to assure that it is within the tolerances. Automatic pullout force measurements are also available. The Alpha 358 does the pull test automatically and the results are transferred to the user software and compared with the preset values. As with the crimp-height-measuring device, production cannot be started until the measured results match the specified values. With an optional bar code scanner, the material is scanned prior to the start of production and compared with the specified values. This step prevents materials from getting mixed up with each other. Processes are constantly monitored during production. Any wires with processing defects are removed and an appropriate number of cables are postprocessed automatically to replace them.
