Alpha 488 S Leadmaker

Reduce Conversion Times and Ensure High Quality

Our Alpha 488 S produces fully-automatic, twisted-pair wires out of two single-bulk wires completely cut-to-length and terminated, with all quality controls included. The modular composition of the system provides superb flexibility and extensive processing possibilities—such as two-ended seal loading and crimping—thanks to four processing stations at the wire beginning and two at the wire end. High machine output of twisted wires results from the parallel processing of two conductors and a division of overall processing into three optimally synchronized main processes. Its linear wire draw-in unit with integrated delta length analyzer (DLA) assures gentle wire handling. The twisting head with AC servo-drive is the heart of the machine, with an integrated twist force analyzer (TFA) that enables uniform twisting. This machine can handle wire cross sections ranging from 2 x 0.13 mm² to 2 x 2.5 mm².
