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.

Komax Alpha 356 Crimp to Crimp Machine

With its extra large mounting surface, the Alpha 356 has room for up to seven processing modules. This machine is ideal if you need increased flexibility or have complex processes

  • Highly flexible with up to five or seven processing stations
  • Integration of standard and customer-specific processes possible
  • Many processing configurations to choose from
  • Integrated quality measurements
  • Create the next job while the machine is running
  • Can be integrated in a network with WPCS interface


Along with the most frequent standard processes of crimping and seal loading, you can obtain a large variety of processing modules such as: fluxing/tinning, twisting the ends of wires, fitting with insulating sleeves and crimping modules for the widest variety of contacts types, ultrasonic or resistance welding modules. You can integrate customer-specific processing stations easily with the ultra-flexible TopWin software.

High productivity

With the reliable TopWin software you can record and edit jobs while the machine is running. The quick wire selector, quick tool-change system and other options ensure excellent productivity especially if there are frequent changeovers.

Maximum quality control

Crimp-height measurement and fully automatic pull-out force measurement are integrated in the process sequence. Optional material-change detection and the optional barcode scanner help to prevent materials from getting mixed up.
The processes are constantly checked against the specified values during production with functions that monitor crimp force, seals, splices, end of wire supply, and length. Any cables with processing defects are removed and an appropriate number of cables are post-processed automatically to replace them.

User friendly

The drive unit for the blade head is placed underneath, giving the machine a neat and ergonomic layout. All processing stations have safety covers that open vertically for optimum access, and application-specific parts like applicators and contact rolls can be changed without tools. Controls are placed at decentralized positions, allowing the necessary machine functions to be triggered during setup. All setting and adjustment procedures can be controlled from the TopWin graphical user interface in the operator’s choice of over 20 different languages.


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. This data can then be directly processed by fully automatic crimping machines.
