STANDART FEATURES

Cast iron frame
In contrast to the machines assembled from separate parts by screws, SM Crimp 2000 cast iron frame warrants a perfect stability during crimping.

Splice band
Splice band is defined according to the type of application and environment temperature range: splice band type and material (brass, brass with tin coating, chrome-nickel, chrome-nickel with tin coating, stainless steel), thickness (0.2 – 0.53 mm), length (1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 mm), and height.

Crimp height adjustment
Crimp height adjustment panel contains a dial and an alphabetical indicator to set up an appropriate crimp height if necessary.

Motorized splice band feeding system
Rubber surface of a feeding wheel prevents damages of the splice band. Special sensor controls the length of each splice.

Control panel
All the controls except the power switch are located at the control panel. With 5 buttons and 1 display it is possible to control the quantity of products, inputs and outputs, interface language, tooling technical data, feeding system and activate emergency stop.

Interface is available in different languages.

Hand wheel
Hand wheel is used to perform manual cycle for testing the system before production, i.e. centering the clincher. Wheeling moves the punch down and allows to monitor splicing process in general as well as positioning of the tooling.

Crimping tooling set
Tooling set includes clincher, anvil, punch, punch guide, and cutting block.

Such parameters as clincher type, clincher size, and punch tip shape are customized for the application.

Inclined clincher surface, smooth cutting surface, quick-change tooling cassette, and finger guard lighting cap guarantees efficient & safe operation.

Integrated memory keeps application parameters, recommended settings and spare parts list.

Options

Crimp Force Monitor (CFM)

CFM captures force-time curve and detects any deviation from the quality tolerances. System works with many types of splicing and crimping machines and suites well to any application requiring inline monitoring of forces.

The reference curve of CFM corresponds to crimping force, but in fact it can reflect such quality deviations as: missing wire strands, inaccurate components positioning or crimp height, insufficient insulation strip length, insulation in the splice area, etc.

CFM also allows to adjust automatic cutting and/or rejection of defective items.

Component position video verification

Built-in camera shoots the clincher area and transfers the image to the monitor in real time. Thus operator is capable to position components precisely.

Cutting unit

Cutting unit cuts the components after splice crimping so that their ends protruding out of the splice band from one side are of equal length. It suits wires of up to 1,5 mm2 diameter.

CFM and cutting unit could be integrated to cut defective parts in halves.

Quality control equipment

Laboratory equipment allows to control whether the splice quality matches industry norms or any other special requirements. Check our micrograph laboratories, pull force and crimp height control tools, as well as specialized measurement software.
