Alpha 530 Leadmaker

Designed for High Productivity and Quality

The Alpha 530 delivers efficient, fully-automatic wire processing for one and two-side crimping, double crimp, ferrule crimping, and seal and sleeve insertion. Fast setup and conversion times and a touch screen, keyboard and mouse allow for time-saving, ergonomic operation. Plus, TopWin software allows the next job to be loaded without halting operation. Workflow is enhanced by short paths for the operator between crimp, wire and cutting stations, which are LED-illuminated. A pneumatic wire straightener enables high feed-in speed and excellent deposit quality—even when using difficult conductor material—and with actively controlled roller pressure, any changes in the cable containers and draw-in speed are compensated. To avoid indentations on the cables during machine stops, the roller pressure is automatically reduced and the speed of the deposit conveyor belt is adjusted, assuring neat and gentle wire deposit.
