The productivity increases achieved create room for new projects

For over 45 years, Komax has been driving fully automated wire processing in high-volume markets such as the automotive industry. Digitalisation in control cabinet construction with the generation of machine-readable production data now makes our machines economical even for batch size 1.

Pre-production of ready-to-install connections

Central wire processing

Parallel instead of sequential saves 65% processing time

Specialisation and automation leads to reduced working time in all process steps. With a central data source, you can pre-produce material and thus parallelise work steps and considerably reduce throughput times.

A time saving of 80% on wiring and 65% on the total lead time of a typical control cabinet project can be achieved. Here we show how.


Fully automated wire processing

The ZETA family is a scalable machine platform for strand production. With a few process stations for the OEM and up to 13 process stations for the contract manufacturer, it offers maximum flexibility.

One machine with its high productivity supplies all assembly stations with clearly identifiable connections. Reading of wiring diagrams becomes superfluous.


Wiring of connectors and entire assemblies

The OMEGA family can make high-precision connections from wires to components. This allows the creation of wire harnesses or pre-wired assemblies. These can be terminal blocks, components or connectors with push-in or spring-cage technology.

DATA: starting point for all process automation

Data from the digital twin

The connection lengths are calculated directly in E-CAD from the 3D structure. The contact type information is drawn from the component data. The wire sequence and bundling is transferred directly to the Komax machine.

Closing data gaps

If the connection lists are incomplete, they can be supplemented in Komax's own software. Even the length can be determined subsequently by means of virtual wiring.

An elegant way to determine the length if a 3D structure is missing.

Economic solutions with manual material change
