The cable processing machines of the »Metzner AM 3000 series« are distinguished by their outstanding cutting and pull-off power and robust, long-life design for continuous industrial use.
Developed and equipped with a performance potential to deal with complete processing of cables and wires up to 70mm², these machines offer comprehensive processing possibilities: from standard stripping processes up to multi-stage stripping, even of very short shielded coaxial cables. Metzner offers seven base models for this, all with different cutting powers and equipment levels. In addition, their blade technologies vary with different blade contours to suit the requirements of different applications. The patented »Double-blade cutting system«, for example, with two knives operating together in one process step to perform different cutting processes and the additional rotary cut, providing precise circumferential cutting for wires with very thin or tough insulation and for coaxial cables.
All models in the »Metzner AM 3000 series« are prepared – as standard – for a full set of interfaces for peripheral equipment and to facilitate IT
integration. In this way, these cut and strip machines are converted easily and without the need for further design work into complete production lines to further increase production automation.
High-precision rotary cut
Equipped with a rotary cutting module, these machines process either coaxial cables or cables with very thin or tough insulation, depending on the model. 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.
Outstanding cutting force
With superior power development for up to 70mm², the Metzner AM 3000 range offers a unique power spectrum for processing cables up to 20mm diameter.
Speed gives high productivity
The feed units used in the Metzner AM 3000 range provide a transport speed of up to 180 m/min. This increases the productivity of the machines, particularly for large cable lengths. The electronically controlled »Vario-Press« on the »AM 3800« and »AM 3850« adjusts the contact pressure during transportation and processing, thereby providing maximum protection of the material.
One operation – two processes
Each model in the »AM 3000 series« is equipped with the patented »Double-Blade Cutting System« as standard. As a result, several processes can be performed during a single operation.
Examples of the numerous processing possibilities include:
- 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
- Simultaneous processing of outer jacket and internal cores for multi-core cables
Option of roller feed or belt feed
You can choose between roller feed and belt feed at no extra cost for several models in the Metzner AM 3000 range. This ensures that you have the best feed system for every cable. If your production requirements change, it is also possible to change the feed system using our retrofit kits.
The AM 3000 series comes with either PC control or PLC control as standard. PC control as standard enables you to activate printing devices (e.g. ink-jet printers, thermal transfer printers) and integrate database software.
