Wiring Harnesses are used in a wide range of electronic devices and electrical applications. A wire harness makes any electrical product work by sending electric power and signals through the wires and cables. You can start wire harness business by supplying wiring harness to industries including; Automotive, Rail and Security, control panels, home and commercial appliances, generators and many more. In this article you will find details of all basic equipment which you will need for starting wire harness manufacturing business.
1. Cable Cutting and Crimping Machine
Wire harness most important part is cable or wires. Almost half material cost consist of cables in wire harness. The first step in wire harness manufacturing would be cutting of cables. This cable are cut and striped according to cutting chart provided by development department. Normally, cutting and striping is performed by automatic cutting and crimping machine.
Crimping is the next operation after cutting and striping. The crimping of solder less terminals is a common practice. Various manufacturer provide complete guideline for proper crimping process. Crimping is available in manual as well as in automatic format.
Sai Paradise, Komax, Kodera, Machine Maker etc provides manual and automatic cutting and crimping machine. Along with this machine, every manufacturer provides required tooling and replacement parts and maintenance guideline to follow.
2. High Frequency Heating
High frequency heating machine normally termed as hot sealing in industry. Hot sealing is a process in which PVC sleeve is sealed on cable at specific dimension. The location of sealing is according to design provided by the customer.
3. Digital HVAC Testing
Wire insulation can have any puncture. Digital HVAC testing helps to find that puncture. This equipment has two cables. One is for positive and other is for negative. The positive wire carry high voltage and moved throughout the cable. If there is any whole in cable insulation then the HVAC tester will show it.
It is important mainly because, harness are also used in home appliances ex. refrigerator. If there is any lekage in insulation then the current can flow through complete body. The leakage current can be dangerous and can hamper safety standard.
Testing Boards are required to assemble wire harness. One is to one drawing print becomes the reference on assembly board. According to the drawing Jigs, bins
