    Application Range

    Application Range

    Discrete wires with cross sections up to 120 mm² (4/0 AWG) or optional 300 mm2 (MCM 600) shielded cable and complex multiconductor applications can be processed in one automated operation. The MegaStrip 9650 is available in 2 basic configured models:

    • M-version with the free programmable indexing multiblade cutter head
    • MR-version with additional rotary incision unit for precise shield cutting

    Thanks to a wide range of additional tools, the MegaStrip 9650 can process a wide range of cables with very different operations. 

    The MegaStrip 9650 is specifically designed to provide the highest possible productivity. Powerful servo drives ensure fast feeding speeds and high stripping forces. An intelligent control unit guarantees short cycle times and repeatable high-quality performance.

  • More Info


    The MegaStrip 9650 is designed for automatically cutting and stripping a wide range of large cables up to 35 mm (1.38"). Its modular design allows users to create an optimized solution based upon required applications and customer environmental conditions. This powerful, yet precise machine is available in 2 different models which can be combined with different additional options for processing. The MegaStrip 9650 M model features Schleuniger’s patented multiple blade position cutter head for multi-step operations. The MR model adds a rotary incision unit to the M model for shielded cable applications and the highest flexibility. Both models come standard with the SmartBlade™ system, allowing quick blade changeovers in seconds. The machine can operate with up to 2 different inkjet marking systems. The print head positions are after the cutter head to prevent any waste pieces. All models feature a 10” color touch screen user interface with intuitive icons and simple navigation. A wide range of interfaces for peripheral devices is in the standard scope of supply.
