Rittal’s Wire Terminal WT C5 and C10 offer fully automated wire processing.

Rittal announced the release of two fully automated wire processing machines, the WT C5 and WT C10. The systems allow wires with individual wire printing (black, white and light blue) and picking to be assembled ten times faster than by hand, the company says. The entry-level WT C5 variant features five vibratory bowl feeders for wire-end ferrules and a wire-end treatment feature for wires with cross-sections ranging from 0.5 to 2.5mm². The product also cuts to length, labels and crimps. The WT C10 variant has ten vibratory bowl feeders for wire-end ferrules with wire cross-sections of up to 6mm² as default. Both variants are operated via a 24-inch display. Its wire feeding system features three feed blocks for up to 36 wires and with 12 wire types per feed block. An RFID transponder automatically secures the wire feed.
