    A lot of time and effort often goes into finding the right equipment for your facility. Purchasing a new automatic cutting machine is no different. With so many options, where does one start? Asking these five questions during the decision-making process will help ensure you end up with equipment that fits all of your needs.

    Will my new cutting and stripping machine be flexible enough to process all of my current and future applications?

    Unless you will be running the same few jobs day in and day out, you’ll want a machine that is as flexible as possible. It is best to focus on the extreme ends of the application range in regards to wire and cable size. For example, if the largest wire you currently process is 10 AWG, determine if there is a chance you will need to process 8 AWG or larger wires in the future. You should also determine if there is a chance you will require advanced features like a multi-blade cutter head (for processing multi-conductor cable jackets and inner conductors) or a rotary incision unit to make radial incisions through the various cable-layers when processing coaxial and other multi-layer cables. Being prepared for future needs will allow you to get the most out of your purchase.

    How long will changeovers take and are tools required?

    Most modern cutting and stripping machines are fully programmable, however, there are always several job specific mechanical parts (guide tubes, blades, etc.) that have to be changed between jobs. Changeover times can be minimized if these changes can be accomplished without requiring tools. The smaller your batch size, the more frequent your changeovers will be. A wire stripping machine with shorter changeover times will provide a quicker ROI and continue to pay dividends over the life of the machine.
