Wir bieten Maschinen und Anlagen für die automatisierte Kabelkonfektionierung an. Dabei erstreckt sich das Spektrum von kleinen Handarbeitsplätzen bis hin zu vollautomatisierten Konfektionieranlagen. Unsere Linien und Anlagen sind linear oder als Rundtakttisch aufgebaut und bestens auf Ihr Produkt abgestimmt. Jedoch ist es möglich Stationen so auszulegen, dass auch mehrere Produkte verarbeitet werden können, oder einzelne Stationen nachgerüstet werden können. Gerne beraten wir Sie zu den Möglichkeiten, wie wir Ihre Konfektierung automatisieren können.


Wir bieten Auf- und Abwickler in diversen Ausführungen für jede Anforderung.


Für optimale Abwickelergebnisse und die stabile Weiterverarbeitung des Kabels setzen wir anwendungsspezifisch ausgelegte Tänzersysteme ein.


Wir haben Ablängverfahren entwickelt zur automatisierten Verarbeitung von z.B.: Energiekabel, Datenkabel, Einzelleiter, Koaxialkabel…


Für das Abisolieren und Abziehen vom Mantel haben wir spezielle Verfahren entwickelt um beste Wiederholgenauigkeit und damit Prozesssicherheit zu erzielen.

Außenleiter absetzen

Prozesssicheres positionieren mit Wellbergerkennung, einschneiden und abziehen von Außenleitern bei Koaxialkabel.

Dielektrikum Einschneiden und Abziehen

Prozesssicheres Einschneiden und Abziehen vom Dielektrikum.

Inspektion & QM

Wir prüfen und messen die Absätze und Bearbeitungen vor der Steckermontage, damit gewährleistet ist, dass sämtliche Toleranzen eingehalten werden und das konfektionierte Kabel beste elektrische Werte aufweist.


Automatisiertes Zuführen, Aufsetzen und Verbinden von Steckern. In der Verbindungstechnik haben wir viel Erfahrung mit den unterschiedlichsten Prozessen wie löten, schweißen, crimpen und verpressen.

Inline Moulden

Speziell entwickeltes Mouldverfahren zum Umspritzen von Kabelsteckern im automatisierten Konfektionierprozess.

Ablängen und Abisolieren

Für das Vorfertigen von Kabelsätzen bieten wir kompakte Anlagen, die von der Trommel abspulen, das Kabel ablängen, vorabisolieren und bedienerfreundlich ablegen.


Dank unserer innovativen Lötdrahtdosierung bieten wir Lötstationen mit Induktions- und Widerstandslötverfahren an, die doppelt überwacht sind. Damit stellen wir sicher, dass Ihre Kontaktverbindungen 100% den Spezifikationen entsprechen und Ihre konfektionierten Kabel beste Ergebnisse erzielen.


Automatisierte Stationen für Crimpverbindungen.

Also in 2018 we had the opportunity to present our novelties at the WIRE in Düsseldorf. We were very happy about the high number of visitors and had many interesting conversations. In addition to the SZ-40 stranding machine and the SZ-140 shielding stranding machine from our wide SZ stranding machine program, we also presented our new Cross-binder and the highlight: Our new CuBW500, the world’s fastest copper tape binder.

Concentric Tape Binder

By cable, fo

Concentric Tape Binder BW560


This tape binder provides an automatic reel take-up via pneumatic pintles, facilitating high rotational speeds with heavy reels. The tape is pulled tangentially from the reel by a driven flyer ring and then wound helically around the cable to the stranding die core by a guiding system. The BW 560 is equipped with a pneumatic brake for a quick stop.
