Nova 800

Nova 800 – Low-Medium Volume UV Laser Wire Marker

Introducing a new era in high performance UV solid state laser wire marking systems…

The Nova 800 is a new and economical system specified to provide performance between the CAPRIS 50-100 and the Nova 820. The Nova 800 offers an increase in productivity compared to the CAPRIS 50-100 but with the enhanced technical features associated with Nova. The Nova 800 is positioned to become the UV laser wire marker of choice for low-medium volume wire marking applications.

Nova 800 wire markers can be configured either as a manual system with a single powered dereeler for manual wire changeover and set-up or alternatively as an automated system coupled with a range of new Nova automated wire handling options to maximise the productivity of the system.

The automated Nova 800 system includes the completely new and innovative high speed Nova wire Auto Select and Loading (ASL) module and new multi-station dereeling systems. These enable the system to be pre-loaded with up to 32 wires or cables, reducing the overall set up and wire changeover time to just a few seconds, allowing use of optimum lean manufacturing methods to maximise productivity.

For more details on available automation options please refer to the Wire Handling & Accessories pages.


Nova 800 Series Attributes

The Nova range offers the following key new attributes:

  • Range of performance with models to suit all needs
  • Highest throughput and productivity with Nova 880, especially for longer wire segments and longer character labels
  • Maximum number of wires handled by the automated version (up to 32) allowing rapid set up and processing of more wire types for manufacturing the most complex wiring harnesses
  • Fastest wire changeover with Nova ASL (6 seconds) allows wires to be processed efficiently and automatically and grouped by connector, in place of subsequent manual sorting – facilitates lean manufacturing methods
  • Maximum system reliability and mark quality combined with minimum running costs
  • Upgradeability – Thanks to its modular design Nova systems are fully upgradeable, so as your volumes increase and your business grows so can your Nova system!

Bar Code Marking

All models in the Nova 800 series are capable of performing bar code marking onto wire and cable, although this is an option.

CAPRIS Bar Code Marking Characteristics

  • Bar code type USS39 (Bar Code 39), full alphanumeric character set
  • Narrow bar width (X): 0.22mm (and inter-character gap)
  • Wide/Narrow ratio (N): 3
  • Maximum data density: 3.0 characters per cm; 7.7 characters per inch
  • Maximum number of characters per bar code: 17*
  • Check sum enabled as default
  • Options for other bar code types available

*: 17 = number of data characters (excluding Start, Stop bit and Checksum character).
