Crimping Machine PCC-Basic

Wire Processing with Power Plugs

Connecting of multi-core cables

The PCC-Basic crimping machine is designed for the economical production of high-quality power cables. High precision crimp connections are made between two- or three-core sheathed cables and power plugs.

Feeding of terminals and wire

The insertion mask and the optional colour detection supports the correct feeding of cables by the machine operator. The plugs and the prepared, stripped wires are fed manually by hand.

Safe crimping process

The machine protection closes automatically and starts the crimping process. The column guided crimping applicator connects the multi-core cables and plugs reproducibly and with high precision.

Systems for automation

In order to increase productivity Schäfer offers further machine variants which enable the automatic feeding of plug bridges and stripping of the wires.

Options for quality assurance

The optional crimp force monitoring supports the quality assurance during cable processing. Deviations from the referenced crimp force are immediately signaled to the machine operator to avoid the use of wires with faulty crimp connections in the further process.

High quality – low maintenance

The high-quality equipment of the PCC-Basic stands for highest production quality. Due to its robust design and modular construction, the machine requires less maintenance and reduces
set-up times to a minimum.

Compliant with the machinery directive

The crimping machine fully complies with all european directives regarding mechanical and electrical safety as well as electromagnetic compatibility.
