Today we shipped another shield cutter machine, this time to Korea.

With automotive cables being under stress and in a generally harsh environment it is critical that cables are produced and terminated correctly and without damage to the insulation of the inner cores, which is why Prettl, Korea have decided to use the BSF1004 shield cutter machine in their operation,

Shield cutter machine

BSF 1004

The BSF1004 from Boewe Elektrik offers a unique solution to a problem faced by most cable assembly companies. Namely, removing shielding, fillers, tapes, liners etc. quickly and without damaging the insulation of the inner cores.

With a wide range of different milling heads (cutters) for different diameter cables the BSF1004 shield cutter machine is versatile and provides totally repeatable results, even in the hands of relatively low-skilled operators.

The process is simple… Remove outer jacket > unbraid (if braided) > fold all the unwanted parts back over the jacket > place the inner conductors into the milling head > start the machine and push the bundle onto the cutter… Job done and with no damage to the inner insulation!

We’d be happy to run a sample using your own cable and video the process for you. Just drop us a line on our contact page.
