Schäfer offers fully automatic crimp machines for high productivity and various applications. On a modular platform different variants of Megomat machines were developed, to achieve maximum flexibility and meet customer specific requirements.
Fully Automatic Crimping Machines
Operating the wire processing machines
Safe handling of automatic machines can be achieved via the modern WireStar user interface. The HMI software developed by Schaefer especially for this machine series supports ideal workflows and offers constant data availability from previous productions.
WireStar’s good networkability contributes to central process coordination and enables extensive and configurable database management. For example, through the integration of Schäfer Connect with connection to the operator’s ERP planning system. The production progress and material consumption can thus be displayed detached from the installation site.
Schäfer’s innovative shuttle system increases productivity by reducing machine downtime.
Crimping applicator and corresponding terminals are placed on the shuttle in the right sequence required for processing on the fully automated machine. The cart enables simple and fast shuttle handling at the setup station and the running machine.
At the setup station, the crimping applicators are set up for the next production job while production is still running.
Aided by the eccentric press and suitable operator software, operator can simulate crimping operations and transfer the parameters for new production jobs to the destinated machine via a network. Quality control equipment turns the setup station into a multifunctional work station.
