PreFeeder 60

PreFeeder 60
High-dynamic prefeeding machine designed for CST machines. With a feeding rate of up to 9 m/s (29.53 ft/s).


The controlled driving method feeds the wire gently and continuously to the active wire storage, while the intake of the fully automatic crimping machine takes the wire out of the storage in order to further processing. Due to this arrangement, it is possible to run the fully automatic crimping machine at high capacity even if provisioning of wires causes problems.

Special Features

  • Gentle feeding method for CrimpCenter
  • Controlled driving system for a max. feeding capacity of 9 m/s
  • Wire storage based on swivel- arm principle
  • Wire deflection and pulley unit


  • Cabling prepared for connection to cut strip terminate machine (required for connection to CrimpCenter)
