The Productronica in Munich was an impressive highlight

The Productronica in Munich was again an impressive highlight in the automation technology and attracted many people during the four exhibition days.

At the booth of Zoller + Fröhlich two new products were presented in addition to the well-known machines for wire processing:

  • Wire Processing Center (WPC)
  • AM04 Duomatic

 

Wire Processing Center (WPC)

The WPC is a mobile system to process different wires for switch cabinets with cross-sections between ​​0.5 mm² and 2.5 mm². The different wires and their components are listed in a CAE system. The WPC process the wires as these stored in the list step by step. For each item in this list, the wire is cut to length with blades, the required labels are printed and the correct ferrule is crimped to the wire with the UNIC-GV universal crimping machine. The operation of the individual steps is carried out manually, which allows the operator to increasingly lay and connect the wires for the complete job in the switch cabinet.
    
The system offers a semi-automatic processing of wires through integration of

  • a THM multi-marker to create the desired markers
  • a Z+F UNICUT 8017 for cutting the wire to length
  • a Z+F UNIC GV for the correct crimping of the ferrule with plastic collar
  • a PC, with intuitive software that visualizes the complete task in the CAE system and control every single step of the task.

Existing machines can be integrated into a WPC, so a new purchase is not necessary.

 

AM 04 Duomatic

Particular attention was paid to the AM 04 Duomatic, which received the highly coveted "productronica innovation award" in the category "Cables, Coils & Hybrids".

The modular stripper crimper is the consistent further development of the very successful and well-known AM 04 from Z+F and enables the simultaneous processing of loose ferrules with cross-sections 4 mm² and 6 mm², without retooling. Both cross-sections are integrated in one machine and can be adjusted very quickly with a touch pad.

Feedback from visitors confirmed Z+F's vision making cable assembly more flexible and simple.

At this point, we would like to thank you again for the innovation award and especially for your interest and your visit during the four days of the exhibition. We wish you further successful business and are looking forward to a continued strong cooperation.
