This construction is built for the automatic harnessing of cables (wires) and cable loops for the automotive industry. This KHU cable assembly plant handles two-componant glued and pressed cable shoes. It produces and insulates the cable loops and afterwards tests and monitors the finished product. The entire plant is operating automatically, ensuring high-end quality products for maximum safety of the end customer.
Machinery and Production Lines for Cable Production and Cable Manufacture
KHU Sondermaschinen develops, designs and fabricates stock and custom machinery and production plants for the cable and wire industry. Our customers value the quality and performance of our cable production plants and automated cable harness plants. Among complete cable production plants we offer a comprehensive supply of components, such as pay-off, take-up, caterpuller and capstans, stranding machinery, twisters and much more. If you can not find what you are searching for please contact us for we are happy to make machinery that does not exist yet. We concentrate on innovative designs to supply our customers with revolutionary products giving them the key competitive advantage.
The belts can be individually adjusted according to your requirements. Pressing and tensioning can be done mechanically and pneumatically. The desired pressure can be steplessly adjusted. The high number of reels results in less wear and tear of the belts and a soft handling of the product (e.g. cable). According to your requirements the capstan could be equipped also with a three-phase motor and a gear box.
Up to 24 moulds are mounted on a round table. A servo motor drives a piston pump which injects the hot liquid synthetic by volumetrically metering into the mould.
The water cooled moulds are easy to replace which adds to productivity and efficiency.
With this machine it is also possible to use various moulds at the same time thanks to the individually adjustable amount of makromelt volume per station. This makes cable manufacturing very efficient for cables with different types of plugs.
Above the pump is the heated repository which will refill itself automatically by the means of a suction device.
The desired volume of makromelt is defined on the control panel.
After pre heating, the machine starts the automatic manufacturing process.
The plugs are placed upwards into the moulds while the cable is free-hanging. Longer cables can be attached to the cable holder beneath the mould.
For the alignment of the pins a fitted counter plug is to be mounted. Hence the round table feeds the injection tool with the cable by rotation. The mould with the inserted plug is then pressed pneumatically towards the opening of the injection tool starting the moulding process automatically.
After attaining the volume the mould goes back into the starting position and the round table rotates to the next station.
The round table is designed to hold 10 or 22 stations for cooling of the injected makromelt, depending on the machine type.
When reaching the end position the finished cable is to be removed from the machine.
