Braid Cutting Overview
Quality stems from repeatability which is derived through consistency of both material and process and there are several areas within the cable assembly industry where process consistency can make, or break, overall quality of the end product. One such area is in managing Braid Cutting on shielded cables.
Incorrect cutting of braid can lead to shorts or HiPot breakdown from insulation damage or even conductor damage. Many faults like these will only show after some time in operation leading to premature field failures, possible warranty claims and damage to your reputation.
The BSF 1004 Braid Cutting machine is designed to fit in the natural follow-on process from the Braid Brushing systems, also from BÖWE Elektrik, and ensures that each braid is cut cleanly and efficiently to the same specification and the conductors remain damage-free… basically they ensure repeatability and quality whilst reducing labour costs.
A range of adjustable cutting tools are available as options that can be quickly swapped out for different cable types
Cable length is unlimited as the cutting tool is offset from the motor body.
As usual with BÖWE Elektrik products, minimal maintenance and fast operation help ensure a fast payback and ongoing returns on what is a relatively modest investment.
