Schleuniger, Inc. to Demonstrate New Wire Processing Equipment at WHMA Wire Harness Conference 2017

Schleuniger, Inc., a leading international manufacturer of high-precision wire processing machines and member of the Wire Harness Manufacturer’s Association (WHMA), will exhibit at the 24th Annual WHMA Wire Harness Conference at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter in San Antonio, TX, February 27 – March 2, 2017. The conference will feature presentations on the latest issues facing the industry and include a small trade show of industry leading suppliers. During the trade show, Schleuniger will be demonstrating select equipment from its comprehensive line of wire processing equipment.

Thanks, to Schleuniger’s worldwide cooperation with Laser Wire Solutions, Schleuniger will be demonstrating the new Mercury-4 laser wire stripping machine, designed by Laser Wire Solutions. The machine strips wires and cables ranging in size from 50 – 6 AWG. This innovative machine does not require any mechanical adjustments to process different wire sizes. Using the color touchscreen, the operator selects the desired stripping parameters from the programmed library and all parameters (strip lengths, laser power and speed, etc.) are automatically set. Once the operator selects the required program, the machine is ready for operation. The Mercury-4 can strip cables inserted into the supplied fixture aperture to an end stop, or via a custom fixture plate. A camera allows the whole process to be monitored.

Schleuniger will also demonstrate the EcoStrip 9380 cut and strip machine. The EcoStrip 9380 offers the most complete feature set at an economical price point. This flexible machine provides expanded capabilities due to its quick change transport unit for belts, rollers and shortmode and is compatible with a wide range of accessories, including prefeeding, marking, stacking and coiling. The intuitive color touchscreen user interface minimizes training and set-up times and with optional Schleuniger software, the EcoStrip 9380 can easily be integrated into various networks.

The ShieldCut 8100 will also be highlighted. The ShieldCut 8100 can safely and quickly cut and remove the braided shield layer from most shielded cables, eliminating countless hours of manual labor. As the only machine of its kind, the ShieldCut 8100 fills a current market need for efficient processing of shielded cables.

Finally, attendees will have the opportunity to experience hands-on demonstrations of two of Schleuniger’s benchtop cable stripping machines, the CoaxStrip 5200 and UniStrip 2300. The CoaxStrip 5200 is a multi-step stripping machine for coaxial, multi-conductor cable and single conductor wire. Thanks to the universally designed blades, centralizers, and clamping jaws, the machine can process a full range of cables without the need for mechanical adjustments, saving the user valuable time and increasing output when switching between applications. The UniStrip 2300 features a pre-programmed cable library and a highly responsive trigger sensor that is great for small, flexible wires. In addition, the machine is also able to able to strip different wire sizes without requiring mechanical adjustments. Both the CoaxStrip 5200 and UniStrip 2300 feature user-friendly, high-resolution color touchscreen interfaces and intuitive programming.

Schleuniger has participated in the WHMA Annual Conference for several years now and is proud to be part of an organization that is dedicated to addressing the specific needs of the wire harness and cable industry.
