Alpha 356 Leadmaker Machine

Alpha 356 Leadmaker

With its extra large mounting surface, the Alpha 356 has room for up to seven processing modules. This machine is ideal if you need increased flexibility or have complex processes.

The Alpha 356 fully automatic crimping machine has room for up to seven processing stations. A wide variety of configurations are possible, in fact, almost any combination of crimping, seal loading, fluxing/tinning, twisting, and fitting with insulating sleeves and end sleeves for strands as well as bulk turned contacts and customer-specific processes. In a configuration featuring three crimping presses, for example, you can crimp the three wire ends for double-crimp connections with different contacts or select different articles without a machine changeover. With the rotating wire selector and the TopWin user software, you can complete most of the preparations for the next job while the current one is still being produced on the machine. Crimping tools, contact rolls and other application-specific parts can be changed without tools. Thanks to the use of the modern technology, the production output – and the de­gree of process control – is extremely high in this machine generation.

*Currently sold only in North America and EMEA.
