The WireTwist 500 is a programmable machine for twisting multiple single wires (e.g.
twisted pair). Twisting single wires gives the twisted wires higher stability for easier wire routing and improved protection against electromagnetic interference. The
machine consists of an electrical drive unit and a compact holding unit.
The WireTwist 500 twists pre-processed wires that have been stripped, crimped or sealed.
The final wire length (twisted) depends on wire diameter and pitch length of the twists.
Minimum wire length is approximately 18" (450 mm) and maximum wire length is
approximately 79" (2,000 mm). Longer wires up to 197" (5,000 mm) are also possible using a
wire guide between the power unit and holding unit.
Programming the WireTwist 500 is simple. A clearly structured display allows quick
adjustment of revolution speed and number of revolutions (forward and reverse). Parameters
can be saved to and loaded from the internal memory. This allows processing of different
applications with high repeatability and consistent quality without compromising flexibility.
Change-overs to different wire lengths and wire diameters are also done quickly and easily.
Custom adapters for wires with housing or other special applications can be made according
to customer specifications.
