The stripping machines can handle the most demanding cables, conductors and insulation materials and can be set up for a wide variety of uses. For example, Thonauer offers devices suitable for a wide range of applications, including stripping and dismantling of strands, coaxial and semi-flex cables, single conductors and the inner conductors in sheathed cables, high-voltage cables, ribbon conductors and asymmetrical cables. The sequence processing also allows multi-layer cables and multi-layer insulation to be stripped. Thonauer also offers the ideal solution for difficult-to-process cables or critical insulations such as Teflon®, Kapton® or silicone. 

Whether stripping thin, tight-fitting or thick insulation, Thonauer has the right device for every stripping length and density. Machines with rotating blades guarantee a precise, round cut, centering the conductor and creating high pull-off forces. This allows a wide range of cables to be processed. Either a full strip or a partial strip can be achieved. The specialized and efficient functioning of these machines results in increased productivity, reduces production time and ensures high, reproducible quality.

Thonauer always strives to bring its customers the latest technologies, so of course our product range also includes laser stripping devices from Laselec.
