Combining unparalleled speed and efficiency with waste-free operation, the ATS flex is a game changer in cable tying and demonstrates HellermannTyton’s commitment to providing solutions that improve process quality and help avoid material waste.

HellermannTyton, a leading manufacturer of automatic tools for bundling with cable ties, is proud to announce the worldwide availability of the ATS flex.

ATS flex can be used with overhead suspension in manual scenarios

This successor to the Autotool ATS3080 sets a new standard in waste-free bundling, offering unparalleled speed, efficiency and process reliability.

Christian Schulze, Product Manager for Automatic Tying Systems (ATS) at HellermannTyton, explains:

Unlike conventional cable tie processing, the ATS feeds the strap and closure head separately from reels, using only the exact amount of material required.

The best way to manage industrial material waste is to avoid creating it in the first place. We are proud to be able to offer our customers the option of eliminating excess strap cut-offs. Using the unique ATS flex saves approximately 100 kg of strap waste compared to using 150,000 conventional cable ties.

Speed and versatility are also key advantages when using the ATS flex. Thanks to the next generation of electronics, the cycle times per tie are up to 25 percent faster. The tool automatically calibrates and optimises on the first two cycles, an integrated sensor detects proper closure.

Three quick-change jaws (30mm, 50mm, 80mm) are included, with an additional jaw size available to order for bundles up to 100mm in diameter, and specially designed jaws for bundling foot parts commonly used on wire harnesses.

At the request of customers who wish to clearly mark their packaging with a unique security seal, HellermannTyton has extended the black and natural strap colours to include red, green, yellow and blue. Tie heads are available in black, natural, red, green and other colours on request.

The ATS flex is designed for both stationary and flexible use, with options for bench mounting kits or overhead suspension, providing adaptability and maximum operator safety in different working environments. The system can also be integrated into fully automated production lines.
