Terminal fitting machine offering increased efficiency

Our Athex fitting machine is your universal solution in producing terminal strips for the control engineering sector.

With the Athex machine, you can print and fit terminal strips according to the CAD templates or manual configuration on the mounting rail. Fit the Athex with up to eighty terminal magazines. These can be swapped during operation and refilled with different-sized terminal types from all well-known brands. If desired, the terminals can also be marked immediately using the very latest laser marking technology.

Your benefits

Increase your productivity and automation level. Reduce the throughput time for the production of switch cabinets thanks to the fully-automated prefabrication of terminal strips.
