Maximum flexibility and compelling options Depending on the article, the spot taping modules can be activated or deactivated on both sides or exclusively on the right or left. The taping parameters stored for the article can be sent to the Sigma 688 ST via the WPCS (interface for data exchange between the wire processing automated machines and the ME system), which saves time. Depending on the application, the “short open ends” or “open ends standard” processing set can be selected. There are also three further optional processing sets: for long and unequal length open ends, for short...
