Original Press Release:

Completely Automated Wire Harness Production

Chicago, Illinois New fully-automatic Block Loaders, Zeta 651 and Zeta 655, from Komax allow for production of small batches, a very broad variety of harnesses and virtually no changeover time. The machine requires no application specific parts to change from one setup to another. The operator simply switches between two carousel pallets. Software automatically calculates the order of loading for the complete assembly process.

The base machine can carry 36 wire choices and several crimping stations, each with a programmable height adjustment, allowing for over 300 different combinations of terminals and wire, all without need for changeover. Options exist for wire marking, more processing stations plus other add-ons and accessories.

Komax's patented measuring system monitors the entire block loading operation from the wire's entry into the cavity to its correct interlocking in the block. Force sensors control each and every insertion.

The Zeta 651 will be introduced at the National Electrical Wire Processing Expo, Milwaukee, WI, May 20-21, 2009.
