CrimpCenter 36 S

Fully Automatic Crimping Machine


Equipped with reliable high precision technology, the CrimpCenter 36 S features a compact modular design offering space for up to 6 processing stations without compromising the high Schleuniger quality standards of the 6-Series. Various configuration possibilities allow for a variety of applications to be processed with cross sections from 0.13 to 6 mm² (26 - 10 AWG). An optimal combination of proven state-of-the-art components results in outstanding production rates.

  • Compact modular design
  • Great flexibility with up to 6 processing stations
  • High end components for highest precision
  • Easy operations with touchscreen and icon-based EASY software
  • Simple network integration in existing infrastructure with standard TCP/IP

Application Range

The new CrimpCenter 36 S is a fully automatic crimping machine with up to six processing stations. The successor to the CrimpCenter 36 utilizes new design concepts to even further increase precision, durability and overalluser friendliness while further reducing set-up time. Various configuration possibilities allow for a variety of applications to be processed. Dynamic, powerful servo drives combined with an intelligent control system provide high production rates to meet the most demanding production schedules. Production parameters are entered with the touch screen monitor via the intuitive, menu-guided graphical user interface to reduce training time and minimize entry errors. All parameters such as wire data, crimp data or seal data can be saved and retrieved for future use. Machine documentation including operating instructions, spare parts identification drawings and schematics are all stored electronically in the machine software for immediate access when needed.

Important Note

Schleuniger recommends that wire samples be submitted in cases where there is doubt as to the processing capabilities of a particular machine. *Wires with hard insulations or those that are tightly bonded might not be able to be processed even if they are within the application range stated above. For cross sections smaller than 0.22 mm² (24 AWG) and larger than 4 mm² (12 AWG), sample processing is required.

Increase Productivity

With feeding speeds of up to 8 m/s (26.3 ft/s), fine-tuned swivel arm movement, optimized internal communication, and fully integrated processing stations, CrimpCenter machines offer unparalleled levels of performance for today’s most demanding applications. To minimize machine downtime, the CrimpCenter 36 S utilizes new quick-change mechanisms, wire feed assist and integrated lighting. It is compatible with Schleuniger’s innovative ToolingShuttle System (TSS). The ToolingShuttle 30 combines crimp applicator, terminal reel and paper winder in one mobile unit to minimize applicator and terminal changes. To further optimize production, the CrimpCenter 36 S can be easily integrated in any network with standard TCP/IP. The optional EASY ProductionServer software can be used to network all of your CrimpCenter machines and allows central management of production orders and distribution of the orders to individual CrimpCenter machines.
