For production where large diameter cables are processed reliably and with precision, the Metzner AM 5000 series is available, giving a solution with the highest level of cutting and pull-off power, ease of operation and long service life.
The Metzner AM 5000 series was specially developed for cables up to 30mm diameter and sections up to 240mm². The particularly high-torque and powerful 3-phase stepper motors are guaranteed to give the necessary power for the pull-off and cutting operations. Their precise finger-tip way of working also makes the Metzner AM 5000 series suitable for processing thinner cables from 1,5mm².
All models are equipped with an electronically controlled »Vario-Press«. This innovative system ensures that the belt closing pressure of the feeders is matched with the necessary applied pulling force in fractions of a second. This ensures optimum gripping pressure of the cables both for stripping and forward feeding of the cables.
To ensure unbroken, automatic production, the material feed is monitored by several sensors. If a material blockage occurs, the production is stopped automatically and the operator is informed about the cause of the stoppage.
Outstanding Cutting and Pull-off Performance
Three-phase stepper motors with extremely strong torque guarantee outstanding performance for both stripping and cutting. The connected load of 3,5 kW & 4,0 kW impressively highlight the performance lead of this series.
Intelligent Contact Pressure for Optimal Material Handling
Both belt feeder units are equipped with electronically controlled and Metzner specific “Vario-Press”-system. With this innovative system, the contact pressure is adjusted to the required stripping force in fractions of a second, i.e. maximum contact pressure for the moment of pulling-off, reduced contact pressure during stripping and minimum con-tact pressure for material transport. In combination with the exceptionally long belt feeder, the AM 5000 models guarantee optimum gentle material handling.
Speed gives high productivity
The feed units used in the Metzner AM 5000 series provide a transport speed of up to 150 m/min. This increases the productivity of the machines, particularly for large cable lengths. The electronically controlled »Vario-Press« adjusts the contact pressure during transportation and processing, thereby providing maximum protection of the material.
Double Blade Cutting System
The standard equipment with the patented »Double blade cutting system« allows several processes during a single operation, such as:
- V-blade for cutting to length and matrix form blade for removing insulation
- Radius V-blade for cut-to-length and removing insulation and slitting blade for removing intermediate sheathing
High-precision rotary cut
Equipped with a rotary cutting module, the AM 5350 processes coaxial cables and wires with very thin or tough insulation. The rotary cut guarantees a precise circumferential cut into the cable cover or sheathing. All requirements such as cut depth or blade rotation speed are freely programmable to match each cable and ensure constantly optimal results with different material demands.
The machines are monitored by sensors to ensure uninterrupted production. Production is halted automatically if the material runs out or if there is a blockage.
The individual production parameters can be programmed with easy using the menu system, even for demanding insulation materials. The display shows the cable currently being processed and the selected processing values. Recurring jobs can be set up in no time as all selected parameters are saved.
