Center Stripping Machines

Mechtrix Center Stripping Machines are designed to remove a section of insulation (window strip) along the length of an insulated wire in combination with most commercial wire processing machines.

MX-5050 Center Stripping Machine

The Mechtrix MX-5050 Center Stripping Machine will remove a preset length of insulation from along the length of an insulated wire. The machine is designed to process wire gauges from 0.5mm² to 8mm² (20 AWG to 8 AWG). The standard MX-5050 is designed to remove a “window” of insulation from 8mm (0.335″) to 40mm (1.575″) long.

A special short center strip version of the MX-5050 can be ordered that will remove a smaller “window” of insulation from 5mm (0.196″) to 10mm (0.394″) long.

When a circuit design requires wires to be sliced or joined together, the MX-5050 can instantly double the production output of your wire processing system. Proven as the optimal method for splicing wires, center stripping reduces the number of discrete wires in a harness while simultaneously improving the electro/mechanical characteristics of the splice and harness.

The MX-5050 machine is electronically interfaced with the wire processing machine via a communication cable. The machine is activated with a simple closed contact signal from the wire processing machine indicating that the wire has stopped moving and is in position. This can occur during the wire feed cycle as many times as required or for the shortest possible cycle time, after the feed cycle during the cut/strip/termination cycle when the wire is already stopped. The maximum output of the MX-5050 is 3500 center strips per hour.

MX-5150 Heavy Duty Center Stripping Machine

The Mechtrix MX-5150 Heavy Duty Center Stripping Machine will remove a preset length of insulation from along the length of an insulated wire. The machine is designed to process wire gauges from 1.5mm² to 95mm² (14 AWG to 2/0 AWG). The standard MX-5150 Heavy Duty is designed to remove a “window” of insulation from 13mm (0.512″) to 50mm (2.0″) long.

When a circuit design requires wires to be sliced or joined togehter, the MX-5150 Heavy Duty can instantly double the production output of your wire processing system. Proven as the optimal method for splicing wires, center stripping reduces the number of discrete wires in a harness while simultaneously improving the electro/mechanical characteristics of the splice and harness.

The MX-5150 Heavy Duty machine is electronically interfaced with the wire processing machine via a communication cable. The machine is activated with a simple closed contact signal from the wire processing machine indicating that the wire has stopped moving and is in position. This can occur during the wire feed cycle as many times as required or for the shortest possible cycle time, after the feed cycle during the cut/strip/termination cycle when the wire is already stopped. The maximum output of the MX-5150 Heavy Duty is 3000 center strips per hour.
