MegaStrip 9680

Automatic Cut and Strip Machine


The MegaStrip 9680 is an automatic cut and strip machine for processing single core wires, multiconductor cables and shielded cables up to 35 mm (1.38") in outer diameter. The modular design and the possibility to connect various peripherals – either from the Schleuniger product range or from third-party suppliers – make this machine a true all-rounder. 

  • Two modular machine designs with additional options offer an extensive processing range for larger diameter cables.
  • Precise, multistep stripping thanks to the Schleuniger multiblade cutting unit and SmartDetect quality monitoring system
  • High flexibility thanks to the SmartBlade system with exchangeable cartridges for the quick changeover of complete blade sets
  • Extensive libraries for recurring cable end types and processing methods simplify programming
  • Economical production and waste avoidance using up to two independent inkjet printers positioned downstream of the cutter head
  • Compatible with MES CAO via SMG Server and CAYMAN software

Application Range

Discrete wires with cross sections up to 120 mm² (4/0 AWG) or optional 300 mm² (MCM 600), shielded cable and complex multi-conductor applications can be processed in one automated operation. The MegaStip 9680 is available in 2 basic configured models:

  • M version with the freely programmable indexing multiblade cutter head
  • MR version with additional rotary incision unit for precise shield cutting

Both model versions are compatible with the CAYMAN cable processing software and the CAO planning software (Manufacturing Execution System), enabling integration into different networks. The MegaStrip 9680 is optimized for maximum production output. Powerful servomotors ensure high feed rates and pull-off forces. Color-coded guides and toolless guide changeovers allow for record-breaking changeover times. Sensor monitoring and the optional SmartDetect system ensure smooth production processes, quick fault rectification, and minimal material waste.

More Info


The MegaStrip 9680 M model features Schleuniger’s patented multiple blade position cutter head for multistep operations. The MR model adds a rotary incision unit for high-precision shield cutting. Both models come standard with the SmartBlade system, allowing quick blade changeovers in seconds. The machine can operate with up to 2 different inkjet marking systems. The print head positions are after the cutter head to prevent any waste pieces.
