Crimping Applicators

Schäfer crimping applicators are suitable for making reliable connections between terminals and wires of different cross sections. With the swivel head the crimping height can be accurately adjusted in steps of 0.02 mm in both the wire and the insulation area.

Standard applicators with mechanical or pneumatic feed mechanism are available for common crimp processes. For development of new models, Schäfer can draw upon a vast experience to meet specific customer needs.

Stripping Modules

Schäfer supplies a wide spectrum of standard stripping modules and provides development of customer-specific modules, for reproducible wire stripping processes. The standard modules are intended for regular stripping processes. They are available with various features and functionalities.

These modules are designed to be used in combination with Schäfer crimping applicators on crimping machines.

Tinning Stations

The tinning stations were specifically developed for use on automatic cable processing machines and allow wire strands to be tinned smoothly and efficiently by the wave tinning process.

Reduced slag formation cuts maintenance and servicing costs. Thanks to the compact, lightweight construction, the tinning stations are easy to handle and require little space on automated wire processing systems.

Bending Modules

Forming terminals to the desired shape prior to crimping, bending modules can be attached to crimping applicators or bending stations can be integrated into the processing line.

This in-process bending benefits in that reels can be used that hold more terminals thanks to the latter’s flat shape. Thus machine downtime due to reel changes can be significantly reduced.

Seal-Module SSM with Seal-Kit SSK

Schäfer’s semi and fully automatic processing machines can be fitted with equipment for attaching seals to wires. The seal kit SSK spaces the seals and feeds them to the seal module SSM-1 in the correct position.

This module applies the seals to the cables in a precise and fast manner. Different seal types including mini seals and hard shell seals can be applied.


The fitting head is a module for automated machines which serves to produce connections on coated wires or insulated cables using insulation displacement terminals.

The terminals are cut off the carrier strip, spaced and fed to the attachment point in the right position.
