With its new Crimpfix E electrically powered automatic stripper and crimper, Weidmüller is providing a new generation of machines for the economical processing of wire-end ferrule reel material with plastic collars.
Crimpfix E activates previously unused rationalisation potential, as wiring in panel building is expensive and time-consuming. One of the most expensive tasks is the assembly of cables, which involves extensive manual work. The Crimpfix E automatic stripper and crimper allows for the efficient, stationary crimping of wire-end ferrule reel material with plastic collars in cable cross-section ranges from 0.5 to 2.5 mm2 – in the field and in the workplace. Crimpfix E automates individual work steps, significantly increases efficiency and reduces the time/costs required for the whole process. "Optimised installation times" is the main requirement that forward-looking markets are asking of their strategic partners. Thanks to its 30 years of experience in the field, Weidmüller has a convincing answer in the shape of a practical, high-performance portfolio of tools to enable the efficient processing of wire material. Crimpfix E is the latest addition to the comprehensive range of tools.
The new Crimpfix E automatic stripper and crimper is quick, simple and flexible for users either in the workshop or on site. After connecting the electrically powered tool to the mains, it is ready to use straight away. Crimpfix E represents a new generation of tools as it has been developed to enable the complete assembly of conductors, i.e. stripping and crimping. There is no need to change the fittings: the combined automatic stripper and crimper is fitted with a flexibly adjustable stripping unit and a crimping drum as standard. Crimpfix E is designed especially for small and medium series with a conductor cross-section of 0.5 to 2.5 mm2, i.e. the most frequently used cross-sections. The stationary, electrically powered Crimpfix E device is also perfect as an entry-level model. It is quick and efficient at processing conductors with standard PVC insulation and wire-end ferrules with plastic collars as reel material with a connection length of 8 mm.
Crimpfix E is robust in design, as its interior is made completely from metal. The new automatic stripper and crimper also has impressively long maintenance intervals, low wear levels and a long service life. Another advantage is that it is really easy to use: Crimpfix E has an adjustable stripping unit and a display showing meter readings for the day, total and servicing. The service meter shows the maintenance intervals. It is easy to adjust to the relevant cross-section range and just requires a hexagon key which is supplied. A conical funnel makes it easier to feed in the conductor to be processed.
Crimpfix E can process different cross-sections without having to change tools. Users simply adjust the stripping blade and the crimping drum. The stripping blades are very easy to change, with a separate menu option that is simple to operate.
Crimpfix E weighs 16 kg and has a compact design, measuring just 230 mm in height, 288 mm in width and 345 mm in depth. Crimpfix is the name given by Weidmüller to its range of automated tools covering different user requirements, conductor cross sections and pulse times.
