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 Kappa 315 Cut and Strip Machine for Cables from 0.02–10mm²

New Machine – The Kappa 315 combines the benefits of both the Kappa 310 and the 320!

High-performance, even for small cross-sections.
Cutting force, high volume output and advanced sensor technology make the Kappa machines the number one choice for automated cutting and stripping, even for smaller wire cross-sections. The machines can be used very efficiently thanks to their simple, intuitive control elements.

The Kappa 315 is fitted with a powerful and robust blade head and has a processing range that comprises cross-sections of 0.05 mm² to 10 mm²:

  • precise and robust blade axis
  • different blade shapes for the highest stripping quality
  • wire feed parts can be changed without tools
  • minimal setup time thanks to a unique conductor detector
  • memory for process parameters, including programmable wire applied pressure valves
  • processing set for short wire lengths starting from 30 mm

Wide range of applications

The Kappa product family stands out thanks to its extremely broad processing range. Its intuitive and simple operation and controls allow you to easily set up even difficult-to-process materials, with extremely fast tool-free changeover to new types of wires.

Fast, simple operation

The intuitive TopTouch operating software guides the user through the process logically. During production, operators have maximum transparency thanks to simple adjustment settings for important parameters. This makes the Kappa machines especially intuitive and safe to operate.

Automatic diameter detection

The sensor-enabled wire diameter and cross-section detection makes it possible to set up and parameterize new wire materials at the push of a button. The unique, tool-free measuring principle reduces time-consuming setup to a minimum, while cut losses are also minimized thanks to the optical wire monitoring. The laser sensor continuously checks and immediately detects wire ends and stripping errors during production.

Versatile integration and interfaces

Peripheral devices such as wire feeding systems, markers or deposition units can be integrated easily as standard. Up to four peripheral devices can be controlled depending on the model. The machines also have a USB port for:

data backup
software upgrades
product and wire import as CSV files product and wire import as CSV files

TopWin Kappa – enhanced capabilities

The TopWin Kappa operating software expands the capabilities and functionality of Kappa machines via a PC user interface. Inkjet printing in multiple positions, mirror printing and double-sided labels can be controlled, including everything from pre-printed wires to logo markings and more.

Intelligent economical production

Products with the same wire are produced without cuts and therefore more economically with the help of job lists. Sequence production and part list processing are also possible. Products may be loaded directly into the job list, even while production is running. Changeover times are minimized thanks to automatic sorting of the different products.

Different types of production as required

Depending on the production process, part lists or sequences can be produced as multi-lead sets or as cable harnesses. In addition, TopWin makes it possible to verify materials, detect material changes or print commercial documents.

Perfectly networked

TopWin Kappa can be easily integrated into networks via the WPCS interface, including, for example, existing user networks. The production-control room software also enables centralized data management, production control and production monitoring.

* Kappa machines can process many conductors outside the indicated cross-section range, however certain extremely hard, tough wires may not be able to be processed even if they are within the indicated cross-section range. If in doubt, we are happy to provide you with samples of your wires.
