1-3 Cautions during running
Safe cautions
1. The cutting knife and roller work state when the machine is running. So absolutely stretch the manual or finger into the connection box or protection cover to touch the cutting knife or rollator to avoid any unnecessary danger. 
2.  to touch any electric part to avoid any electric shock. Only professional personnel can open the cover to carry out maintenance. 
3. machine's weight is about 100 Kg. To move it may be dangerous!

Attention 4. When operating on the cutter holder or the blade, turn off the power supply, and pull out the power supply plug. And don't put the manual or finger inside the protection to prevent the blade from wounding the finger. 
5. When replacing the processed material, please turn off the power supply and pull out the power supply plug. 
6. When removing the waste inside the cutting knife, turn off the powerplay, pull out the power supply plug, and use a manual tool to do it. 

1-4 Repairing and maintenance

1. Please pull out the power cable while carrying on electric circuit checking etc. Please do not carry on any operation, while the power is on, to avoid the electric shock. 
2. When replacing the cutter holder or other mechanic parts, turn off the power supply, and pull out the power supply plug, to prevent the blade from wounding the finger and avoids electric shock.
3. While just ending the processing, the motor temperature is still very high, therefore you should not touch it. 
During the whole machine working process, especially when it's just started, do not wear gloves during operation, prevent the gloves from being drawn in. Dangerous!

2. Introduction
The machine adopts advanced electronic control technology, with a high-precision control module and transmission mechanism, it helps strip and crimp at one-time and also with low noise, low power consumption, high efficiency, and so on. For extremely thin wire, the processing of multi-core shielded wire has an obvious effect. The wire range is AWG 18-36. 
The machine wire stripping action is driven by cylinder transmission, with high speed and accurate position. By using the vacuum suction mode, Waste is clean, convenient, and simple. The press is driven by a gear reducer, and the pressure is highly accurate. For an un-proficient or proficient operator, the machine can be adjusted by changing the overall speed of the gas valve, to adapt to the operator's proficiency.
It is our aim that it can reduce the working procedure effectively, reduce the difficulty of the work and improve the working efficiency. At last, we wish to make progress together with colleagues from all.

6. Crimping operation process

warning Please cut off the power switch before the finger is put into the applicator. The idle crimping and continuous crimping will damage the blade, pay attention, please.

Please refer to the following items before the operation, and carry on a periodical check on the processed products.
6-1 To measure the core crimping height 
6-1-1 Use the core crimping height micrometer.
Fig 6.1  To measure the core crimping height

6-1-2 To measure the insulation height
According to the terminal specifications, use the method same as that of core height measurement.
If there is no specification, fold the electric wire as shown in the diagram below, the crimping height of the electric wire insulation must ensure that the insulation doesn't deviate.
But please notice:
After crimping, do not let the terminal hurt the wire core.
Fig 6.2 To measure the terminal crimping insulation height
6-2 Electric wire and terminal crimping status
6-2-1 To feed the electric wire too deeply causes bad crimping.
The conductor can't be seen

6-2-2 To feed the electric wire too little causes bad crimping.
The resin can't be seen.
The core appearance is bad.
6-3Terminal deformation is bad
6-3-1 There is no tiny raise at the back.
wire cutting
6-3-2Terminal upper and lower curving angle too big

6-3-3Terminal left/right turn-round is too big

6-3-4Terminal waving too big
