The Strunk KM-CFK welding station will compact (compress, form, and bond) stripped wire ends from 0.5 up to 6 mm² (20 - 10 AWG) on the CrimpCenter 6-series machines through a resistance welding process. Depending on the CrimpCenter model, one or both wire ends can be compacted or the process can be combined with other processing steps. The system includes the KM-CFK station, a separate control unit and a separate (optional) cooling unit.
The Strunk KM-CFK welding station will compact (compress, form, and bond) stripped wire ends from 0.5 up to 6 mm² (20 - 10 AWG) on the CrimpCenter 6-series machines through a resistance welding process. The stripped wire end is positioned in the tooling of the compacting station by the swivel arm of the CrimpCenter. The individual strands are compacted between vertically installed electrodes. On both sides, ceramic plates determine the compacting width. Changeover of electrodes and ceramic plates for different wire cross sections is easy and fast. Welding parameters can be monitored during the entire process and saved for quality checking when using the optional PC control unit.
