SAM1 and SAM2

We offer compact machines for cutting and stripping wires with a wide range of cross sections and insulation materials.

The workflows of the SAM1 and SAM2 cutting and stripping machines from Schäfer are electronically controlled. All necessary process data, such as cutting length, stripping length, cut-in depth, and pull-in speed can be conveniently entered via the touch screen display. The language, as well as the linear measurement system can be set quickly and easily.

The 4-blade cutting head enables simultaneous stripping of the both ends of the wire. Thus the piece number capacity is increased by more than 1000 pieces per hour (as compared to 1-blade mode). In addition, blades to an insulation length of approx. 18 mm can be stripped as standard.

The transport rollers or belts can be adjusted independently of each other at the wire feed and at the wire discharge. Wire feed is automatic. The guide parts can be changed within seconds without the use of tools.

The SAM1 processes wires with a diameter of up to 6 mm² and an outer cable diameter of maximum 6 mm. The SAM2 is designed for a larger spectrum of cables and processes wires with a diameter of up to 16 mm² and an outer cable diameter of maximum 12 mm. Different insulation materials, such as PVC, silicone, and Teflon can be precisely cut and stripped. With the optional conversion kit, multi-wire flat cables to a maximum width of 8 mm can also be manufactured.

The new database functions of the SAM2 cutting and stripping machine increase operating convenience and flexibility. Articles and the associated process parameters can be stored and can be called up again for later production runs.
