Insulated Ferrules


Z+F wire ferrules are manufactured in various types, colours and varying cross section sizes from 0.14 mm² to 150 mm² with varying connection lengths. The twin ferrule was first created by Z+F in 1991 and has since been an overwhelming success. Z+F is proud to hold the only patent for this innovation in the world. Due to varying requirements from customers, Z+F has developed different delivery solutions. Wire ferrules are now available in single bags, multiple bags, on reel, as belt-strips, uninsulated or in assortment boxes.


Wire Handling





Taping machines from the KABATEC company are known for their high efficiency and economical taping of different types of cabling and wiring. Kabatec design and manufacture their products in accordance with individual customer requirements.

Komax Kappa 320 Cut and Strip Machine for Cables from 0.05–10mm²

Power, performance and a new type of sensors are the three key features of the fully automatic Kappa cutting and stripping machines. All machine types in the Kappa product family are compelling in the extremely broad range of processing they cover. Thanks to the simple, flexible controls, even difficult to process materials can be set up quickly and easily. The changeover to new types of cables can be done without tools so it is ultra-fast.

  • Broader processing range with a diversity of options and solutions
  • Innovative sensors to aid in setup and to monitor processing
  • Intuitive, flexible and simple touch-screen operation
  • Simple integration of upstream and downstream equipment
  • TopWin for connecting inkjet, part list production and network solutions


This machine features a number of options and a powerful blade head. Wire sizes from 0.05 to 10mm² fall under its processing capacity. From this machine type and higher, all fully automatic cutting and stripping machines can be controlled and networked via TopWin software to allow inkjet marking.


The conductor diameter and cross section are automatically detected by a sensor, so new cable material can be set up and parameterized at the press of a button. Setup used to be extremely time-consuming. This unique measuring approach reduces this procedure to an absolute minimum. Thanks to the optical cable detector, cut losses are also a thing of the past. The same sensor continuously monitors processing during production. The end of the cable or stripping errors are detected at the earliest possible point in time.

Periphery and interfaces

The integration of wire feeding systems, markers, deposition units, and other peripheral devices is standardized and easy. Up to six peripheral devices can be controlled parallel to the main system depending on the machine model. Data backup, updates, import of CSV cable and product data are handled over a USB stick.


TopTouch is an intuitive touch screen user software modelled on the TopWin structure found in automatic crimping machines. With the integrated user prompts, Kappas are extremely easy to operate.

TopWin Kappa expands the capabilities and functions of the fully automatic Kappa cutting and stripping machines. The PC-based control software allows inkjet marking, sequence production, and part list processing. The products to be produced may be loaded directly to the wire processing machine or via a job list.

The optional interface WPCS (Wire Processing Communication Stand-ard) allows Komax machines to be networked under TopWin. With this open interface, the machine is easy to integrate into existing production sequences.

TopNet is a clearly arranged mana-gement software with functions for the centralized creation and management of parts, articles and jobs that help you to optimize your production operations.

TopConvert can be used to convert already existing job and article lists to WPCS format. These data may then be processed directly by the cutting and stripping machine.
