Wire Manufacturing Machinery at SIC Ltd

Cutting Edge of Technology

SIC Ltd has expanded their precision manufacturing capabilities with a new, market-leading, fully-automated wire processing machine.

The Komax Alpha 530, puts powerful technology behind one and two-sided crimping and seal loading, facilitating exceptional precision and fast set-up and conversion times. It’s the first and only machine of its kind in the UK, and has been purchased by SIC Ltd to capitalize on a robust order book and healthy sales pipeline.

Despite a turbulent political and economic backdrop, SIC has enjoyed record sales and new business enquiries in 2017. And, with increased interest from manufacturers requiring more specialised and precision wire processing harnessing (especially in modern new technology industries) the company’s investment is timely.

“The wider economic climate certainly seems to have given us a comparative advantage where our manufactured components are being used in products for overseas markets. While we don’t necessarily have visibility on this, we do have visibility on our order book, which is looking healthy and robust.”
– Comments Anthony Roberts, Operations Director at SIC Ltd

About the Komax Alpha 530..

Attains maximum productivity in no time at all; the work flow is enhanced by short paths for the operator between crimp and wire and cutting stations, all with LED-illuminated work zones. With the help of the optional linear quick wire changer and the quick MTC mobile terminal changer, the Alpha 530 can be converted even more quickly.

Lightning-quick to convert, parallel setup procedures: simple, fast setup and conversion approaches allow short travel paths while accelerating the conversion and setup procedures. With the touch screen, keyboard and mouse, the Alpha 530 can be operated in a time-saving and ergonomic fashion. The Top Win software allows the next job to be loaded without halting operations and the material and the tool to be prepared. Indicator lamps and LED-illuminated work zones optimize and expand user guidance.

First-time-right approach – minimal rejects: sop precision, even at maximum system performance and excellent CpK results; the machine processes and the functions for quality assurance are perfectly attuned to each other. The reliable Ether CAT technology guarantees optimum processes.

Quality assurance by Komax Wire:

Komax Wire develops and produces the elements of quality assurance itself. The highest requirements of the automotive industry are satisfied. The optional available automatic conductor detector (ACD) reduces operator influence and ensures quality monitoring even for the finest wires. The ACD detects the slightest contact between blade and conductor strands during stripping. Other available options include integrated strip monitoring (Q1240), crimp force analysis (CFA+/CFA) and seal position monitoring (SPM).

Gentle wire guidance; the pneumatic wire straightener enables high feed-in speed and excellent deposit quality even with difficult conductor material. With the 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. The speed of the deposit conveyor belt is automatically adjusted, assuring neat and gentle wire deposit. The deposit tray features a smooth surface to prevent any cable damage.
