BROOKFIELD, Wis., Dec. 4, 2012 – Artos Engineering Company, a Brookfield-based manufacturer of wire processing equipment, has opened an office in Shanghai, China to provide sales service and support for Artos Engineering customers in Asia.  The office is headed by manager Patrick Zhou, who comes to Artos Engineering with more than 14 years of industry experience in sales of wire processing equipment.

“We’re responding to the surge in demand in Asia for our new Cr.11 and Cr.22 fully automatic crimping machines, says John Olsen II, President of Artos Engineering. “Since the 1980s, when we were the first in the industry to sell in China, we’ve been committed to offering our customers in Asia the best equipment and technical support possible.  This new office is an important strategic step for Artos to continue our growth in a global marketplace.”

The automatic crimping machines, part of Artos Engineering’s full line of wire stripping, crimping, cutting and marking equipment, are used extensively in the automotive, appliance and electronics industries.

The Cr.11 brings a new level of affordability to fully automatic wire processing. Uniquely designed to simplify and shorten set-up times, the Cr.11 is an ideal machine for production of both high volume runs and high mix applications. The uniquely designed terminal tool cart minimizes set-up time for changing terminal applicators, improving up time and efficiencies.  The exclusive use of servo drive technology allows for the highest level of operating precision and quality, while producing cycle rates of over 4000 completed pieces per hour. Optional set-up verification devices ensure product quality and minimize scrap.

Built on the same platform as the popular Cr.11, the Cr.22 offers up to four processing stations for a wider range of end of wire applications including terminal crimping, weather seal application or wire end twist and tinning.  Similar to our Cr.11, the digital servo driven Cr.22 offers unique set-up features designed to shorten the machine set-up time, allowing for processing both large batch size and high mix production runs.
