CS800 Automatic Cutter & Stripper

Problem Possible Cause Possible solution
Conductors cut Conductor diameter setting too small Increase the conductor diameter setting (see section 6.5)
Wire not cut through Dull blades or conductor is too heavy for the cutting head Change blades or/and decrease the cut rate (see section 6.7)
Both ends slugs not pulling off Blades do not cut insulation
  • Inspect blades alignment (See section 7.2)
  • Inspect blades integrity. If they have broken, dull cutting edges, change them (See section 7.2)
  • Decrease the conductor diameter setting (see section 6.5)
Too much releasing during the pull Decrease the release blade setting ( see section 6.8)
Conductors scraped Release Blade Setting too small Increase the release blade setting ( see section 6.8)
Conductor diameter setting too small Increase the conductor diameter setting (see section 6.5)
Right strip slug not pulling correctly Pull length not set correctly Set strip and pull length to the correct values (See section 6.6)
Wire slipping in left belt feeder Tighten left feed belts (See section 5.3)
Left strip slug not pulling correctly Pull length not set correctly Set strip and pull length to the correct values (See section 6.6)
Wire slipping in right belt feeder Tighten Right feed belts (See section 5.3)
Right strip bent back when exiting the machine Strip hits a right feeder belts Use a Wire Straightener (AR3950)
Too much conductor exposed
  • Leave the insulation slug on the wire (semi-strip)
  • Decrease the right pull (see section 6.6)
  • If the process calls for a long strip and a short strip, put the long strip on the left end.
Small gauge Teflon wire not stripping Dull cutting blades Inspect cutting blades, if dull replace (See section 7.2)
Blades out of alignment
  • Align the cutting blades (see section 7.2)
  • Use different combinations of blade and blade release settings
Wire lengths not accurate Wire slipping in left feed belts Tighten left feed belts (See section 5.3) to prevent slippage
Too much friction on dereeling system Readjust dereeling system to prevent tugging on the reel
Wire Straightener too tight
  • Reduce the Wire Straightener tension (AR3950)
  • Check feed rate, slower speed have greater torque which result in better accuracy
Feed belts stall when trying to feed wire Wire Straightener too tight Reduce the Wire Straightener tension (AR3950)
Too much friction on dereeling system
  • Readjust dereeling system to prevent tugging on the reel
  • Decrease the feed belts pressure
  • Check feed wire speed, slower speed have greater torque which result in better accuracy
Wire hits blade and jams End of the wire deviates widely from the center line
  • Use a Wire Straightener (AR3950)
  • Install the next smallest bushing (See section 5.1)
  • Check bushing alignment
  • Decrease the feed rate
Left wire end hits input bushing and jams Left wire end of the wire deviates widely from the center line
  • Use a Wire Straightener (AR3950)
  • Install the next smallest wire output bushing (See section 5.1)
  • Check input bushing alignment
  • Decrease the feed rate
  • Force the input bushing to lift up
Right wire end hits output bushing and jams Right wire end of the wire deviates widely from the center line
  • Use a Wire Straightener (AR3950)
  • Install the next smallest input bushing (See section 5.1)
  • Check output wire guide alignment
  • Decrease the feed rate
Unit Overheats Clogged fan filter Remove fan filters, clean (See section 7.3)
Ambient Temperature to high Refer to Section 2 (Operating Environment). Also, see Section 3.
