Cable twisting machines

Thonauer’s product range also encompasses both semi-automatic and fully automatic twisting machines for cable processing. 

Our semi-automatic twisting machine can twist two to four cables, and offers the best price-performance ratio. With the option of precise multiple twisting, this process is achieved without any laying up faults and guarantees a uniform lay length. Thanks to the flexible setting options, the final length, lay length, cable cross-section, outer diameter of the cable and open ends can all be varied. The cutting length is calculated automatically based on the data entered.  

With its two twisting lines, the Komax bt 288 machine can even process larger quantities of prefabricated cables efficiently.  To meet the requirement for protecting twisted cables against untwisting (transport and mounting protection), the optional bonding unit on the bt 188 T can automatically bind together both cable ends with fabric or PVC tape (spot taping). 

Thonauer also supplies the Alpha 488 S twisting machine that offers countless processing possibilities with its four processing stations at the start of the line and two at the end. This means that endless, fully assembled and twisted cables can be produced, including all the quality control checks. A special processing set enables the production of UTP (unshielded twisted pair) cables with very short, open cable ends, such as those required for Ethernet applications.

Our twisting machines with the MIKO interface are all compatible for the exchange of data with your Manufacturing Execution System (MES). This type of networking means that setting up products is fast and fault-free, providing high transparency along the value chain.

bt 188 T / bt 288

Semi-automatic twisting machines

Twisting two, three or even four wires is so easy with the bt 188 T. With the precise multi-conductor twisting option, three or four conductors can be twisted perfectly with no pitch errors. As with twisted pairs, the result is a uniform pitch length with high reproducibility over the entire twisted length of the cable.
