RW Automatic Cut-to-Length
& Insulation Stripping Machine
Operator-Convenient. Quick, Consistent Results. Compact.
The RW Automatic Cut-to-Length & Insulation Stripping Machine is designed to straighten wire from a spool, strip off the insulation and accurately cut the copper to a preprogrammed length. With the RW, you will get more precise cutting, more consistent stripping and waste less copper because the copper is cut to the programmed length. A precise encoder wheel directly measures the wire movement to ensure repeatedly, accurate pieces. Best of all, it does it automatically!
CAM’s RW is a multi-function machine that performs wire preparation operations in seconds, without human operator interaction. Simple to program, the machine’s computer program controls the entire measuring, counting, cutting and end stripping process automatically.
RW Automatic Cut-to-Length Machine FEATURES
High-velocity air wipers
High-velocity air blows across the wire to clean the dust and cool the wire. A felt wiper removes remaining dust.
Rollers to straighten the wire
Five horizontal & seven vertical rollers straighten the wire. The straighteners have digital adjustment gauges so they can be quickly set to match the wire size.
External brush adjustment hand wheels
It is critical that the brushes be properly set to remove the insulation without burning the wire. This is easy on the RW. The vertical and horizontal brush sets are each controlled by their own hand wheel. Each hand wheel has a dial calibrated to match the space between the brushes. The brushes move together so they are always centered on the wire. The operator sets the intitial distance to match the wire thickness. During operation the operator can make fine adjustments because the hand wheels are outside the guard.
Designed for DC Straps
Operator can program up to six lengths in sequence to make a set of straps for a DC armature coil.
After the primary area is cleaned, the brushes can be reversed to help remove stray pieces of insulation. This is helpful with some insulations. We offer a heavy duty reversing option for continuous reversing on all pieces.
Special-angled brushes in efficient chambers
Each brush set is enclosed in a compact chamber for efficient dust removal. The chambers have windows and lights to enable the operator to monitor the work. The brushes are angled to make a cleaner end to the insulation.
