ACD Automatic Conductor Detector

ACD Automatic Conductor Detector

MicroLab 35 is designed for the quick creation of micrographs of terminals up to a diameter of 3 mm. The processing time is short thanks to the fully automatic transport system and the reliable tech­nology. The parallel processes allow one micrograph per minute to be created on a continuous basis. The sample is clamped in place quickly with laser support, so the inspection position is determined precisely. There is no re-clamping of samples – the MicroLab 35 cuts and polishes the samples automatically. As soon as the samples arrive at the evaluation unit, they undergo electrolytic cleaning – the micrograph is taken and evaluated.

Highly precise fully automatic conductor detection satisfies the increasing demands placed on copper and aluminum stranded wires.


The quality requirements placed on wire processing are becoming higher all the time because of miniaturisation and new technologies. To satisfy one of the current automobile crimping standard for solder-free electric connections, Komax had to develop fully automatic conductor detection ACD. This function detects the slightest contact between blade and conductor strand during stripping, setup and production. Based on a capacitive measurement principle, the ACD is integrated in the blade holder and can be operated with standard-stripping blades. Its standard work range covers the spectrum of cross sections from 0.13 to 6 mm², any conductor length and stripping with full strip or partial strip. There are setup parameters to set the desired monitoring limit. Faulty conductor ends are detected and discarded automatically.
