AutoStrip Series (cont.)BLADES
Eubanks blades are made of high-grade tool steel selected for its ability to hold an extremely sharp edge. The machines use separate pairs of blades for cutting and stripping so that the strip blades never cut copper. This results in longer blade life than in systems that use one pair of blades for both functions.
You can use V-type blades for a wide range of insulations, including PVC. However, radius V-blades or precision die radius V-blades may be required for some insulations, such as Tefzel, Teflon and irradiated PVC. Precision die radius V-blades are recommended for insulations that are very difficult to strip, including the thin wall insulation on data and communications cables. Radius V-blades and precision die radius V-blades can be changed for different wire sizes in less than a minute.
Heavy duty blade holders support the blades on all sides. The Model 8000 and Model 7400 come with a convenient blade cassette that loads the strip and cut blades into the holder in one step. The blade cassette is an option on the Model 4900, which comes with a special tool for blade handling.
You control blade penetration and retraction, prior to stripping, in increments of 0.001" (0.0lmm) so that the blades do not scrape the conductor. Like other functions, this is controlled from the keyboard.
The AutoStrip machines reflect the experience gained in more than 40 years of designing and manufacturing reliable, high-performance wire strippers. Every mechanical part and every electrical component used in Eubanks machines has been designed and fabricated for maximum performance and reliability
The AutoStrip display is clear, sharp, and easy to read. You use it to set up and to monitor all system functions. For example, the screen shown above displays the program number, wire length, batch quantity, wires completed and strip diameter (blade penetration). You can use other screens to control a variety of additional functions, including:
