The 4040 is as powerful as the 2940, but is equipped with two tandem-cutterheads that are controlled independently. Tandem-cutterheads allow you to strip up to 100” on the leading end and 4” on the trailing end. This designed is ideal for processing large power cords. Equipped with the standard tooling, the 4040 can cut and strip single stranded conduct wires ranging from 4 to 2/0 AWG (26.4mm2 up to 68.9mm2), with a maximum O.D. of .625” (15.9mm). With optional tooling and modification kits, the 4040 can process wires down to 18 AWG (0.96 mm2). The 4040 can also process a wide variety of cable types such as round or flat multi-conductor cable, parallel conductor cable with 2, 3 or 4 conductors, coaxial cable, and fiber optic cable made of plastic or glass and even with Kevlar reinforced fibers. It’s so flexible that it can process wire lengths from 6 in. to 8,333 feet (152.4mm to 2,540m).
The 4040 cuts and strips both ends of the wire or cable in a single cycle in normal operation mode. When activating the long strip function, the right cutter head will strip up to 100”(254cm) in desired sectional stripping lengths. The left Cutterhead strips the trailing end up to a maximum length of 4”(102mm). The 4040’s production screen can display the estimated pieces per hour being produced at the current feed speed. The production screen also displays an estimated time of completion.

User Friendly Programming
The 4040 is microprocessor-controlled, highly reliable, and easy to operate. It stores up to 1,000 programs containing separate wire length, batch quantity, and wire mark spacing combinations. The 4040 has built in wire marking controls for pairing a wire marker. From its console, the operator can select and run programs, step the machine through a complete cycle, and switch from single- to multiple-action. It can easily be converted from inch to metric measurements via the machine’s keyboard. It can display in 6 different languages and also has self-diagnostics. It also has length correction compensating fields designed to fine tune to the best exact length tolerance possible.
Our pneumatic strippers use unique hand machined precision die blades and blocks. These setups last years, and deliver the best quality strip available. During the strip function, the blades butt-up against one another cutting perfectly around the circumference of the conductor. During the pull to strip, the insulation is held by perfectly by both top and bottom strip blades giving a perfect linear pull when stripping. The end result is a perfect 180° square cut of the insulation without any damage to the conductor.
We design and manufacture all our own blades using our proprietary processes. These processes assure high-precision performance over a long service life. This is where Eubanks clearly excels. We can design special tooling to do cut strip and slit on parallel wires and also offset stripping. Customers have learned to rely on our extensive strip-blade expertise as they adapt to new insulations and tough applications.
