Wire Processors electric or pneumatic are engineered for cutting and stripping wires or cables. Wire Processors are not designed for pulling the wire off heavy reels. Pulling wire off heavy spools or reels can overstress and prematurely wear or damage the Wire Processor’s wire drive mechanisms. The model 6880-05 Prefeed helps protect and prolong the service life of your wire stripper as it absorbs the stresses that come from tugging and pulling wire, thus protecting your investment. The 6880-05 comes equipped with standard wire drive belts made of a unique Kevlar composition. The Green Kevlar belts have a long wear life and will not mark or damage the wire’s insulation. The 6880-05 can accommodate delicate 30 AWG (.06mm²) wire and up to 2/0 AWG (69mm²) flexible stranded wires. The 6880-05 can also support on its side stand a spool or reel weighing up to 120 lbs (54kg). Additional modification kits for working with 2/0 wire or flat cable are available.

The 6880-05 is designed as a stand-alone prefeed and can work with any make or brand of wire processing machines. When paired with a Eubanks wire processing machine, both the prefeed and the wire processor form an integrated system. This provides safety as both the prefeed and wire processor will shut down in the event of a wire jam or entanglement.
Once the exit pulley height is set, you can quickly load the wire onto the Prefeed’s wire drive by using the manual toggle switch. After threading the wire through the lower buffer pulley, and exit pulley, use the variable speed control knob to achieve maximum synchronization with the wire processor.
The 6880-05 will boost production as it will allow you to program your wire processor at a faster speed. It will help increase accuracy in wire lengths and will help relieve any stress or deformation to the wire.
