Why use Enter Automation fuse cutters?

To put it as simply as possible, the following reasons to choose EA fuse cutters are listed below:

  • Faster Production Rate - Produce products faster and cheaper.
  • Higher quality fuse cut ends - Welded ends without discoloration thanks to accurately applied shielding gas. Especially useful in medical and robotic applications.
  • Precision Construction - Electrodes (cutting blades) and motion systems are precision machined and aligned, providing the tight tolerances required for cutting micro cables.

  • Automation - Enter Automation has the capability to produce custom order automatic fuse cutters with cellular automation. See the list at the end of the article for further information.

For those more familiar with the functionality of fuse cutters, an extended list.

  • Precision Electrode Positioning - Control the gap between electrodes within .001" on a repeatable basis.
  • Repeatable Cutting Power Control - Digital control over the cutting power creates more consistent fuse cutting outcomes, especially on micro cables.
  • Precision Stretch Cycles - Stretch cycles are precisely driven with a motor to create consistent products.
  • Proprietary cutting cycles to optimize cable end shape and fuse strength - Combining precision stretch control and cutting power into repeatable cycles make cutting the most difficult wire rope consistent and reliable.
  • Product Recipes - Recipes reduce setup time and can prepare the machine for production with the click of a button.
  • Material Diversity - We have developed machines that work with steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel, tungsten, and more.

The Story

After years of designing and integrating solutions to make marketplace fuse cutters faster, more consistent and productive in the wire rope industry, a breaking point was reached. It became clear engineering a superior product from the ground up was the best way to meet and exceed production goals with regards to quantity and quality.

For the team at EA, the experience of designing multiple fuse cutters from a blank slate solidified the understanding of the intricacies within a fuse cutter. This core understanding is what lets Enter Automation extend beyond standard product fuse cutters to produce automatic fuse cutters with value added operations.

Industrial Automation Add-ons

Some typical operations we have integrated with are listed below:

  • Automatic Bundling - After each “batch count” is reached, the batch will automatically be bundled and moved to a new location to keep the count accurate. The machine will then continue production without operator intervention. The operator becomes only responsible for changing bulk wire spools. This increases production rate substantially due to reduction in machine idle time. This addon can also be utilized for operators to load a spool and start product just before they go home. This can create an additional spool of product per day.
  • Automatic Coiling - Individual wire coils are output from the machine instead of straight cable lengths.
  • Wire end processing - Wire end processing can be integrated into a fuse cutter with various automation methods.
  • Assembly - Fuse cutters can be integrated with further assembly of a product. Instead of stopping at automatic cutting of the wire rope, why not perform further automated steps?
  • Custom - We will engineer a solution that works for you.

These are just a few of the options available when purchasing an Enter Automation Fuse Cutter machine. We are happy to entertain unique challenges, please reach out to us today if you have any questions, inquiries, or requests for automation.
