ShieldCut 8100

ShieldCut 8100

Unrivaled Flexibility for Cable Shield Cutting

The ShieldCut 8100 is an unrivaled and flexible semi-automatic machine to cut the braided shielding of round and out-of-round cables. The machine is controlled via a color touchscreen for fast and easy operation. The intuitive menu guidance guarantees short training times and minimizes input errors. All the production data can be saved and retrieved at any time.

A rotating brush combs out the braided shield strands. Subsequently the shield strands are then cut between a rotating blade and a fixed blade.

The supplied standard guide set enables a wide range of cable diameters to be processed. The clamping jaws and shield cutting blades are universal and do not have to be changed for different cable sizes.

The ShieldCut 8100 is equipped with reliable drives and high-performance control software for repeatable, high-quality results that cannot be achieved with manual shield processing.

The machine is equipped with an intuitive, high-definition 7-inch color touchscreen user interface.
