Our harness design software allows us to generate a wire cut list before manufacturing commences. Each conductor for the wiring looms / harness is printed and cut to length using our specialised ink-jet printer. The wire printing, is an important addition to the manufacturing process, in which we label wire identification on to the wires. This process means that the wiring diagram can be referred back to as required and can aid in fault finding.
We utilise a variety of tinned copper cabling for all our harness manufacturing, depending on your specifications we have either XLPE (TXL) or “Mil-Spec” PTFE sheathing. These variants of tinned copper cable offer better resistance to corrosion, higher temperature ratings, greater current handling capability, and oil/chemical resistance over standard PVC sheathed automotive copper cabling.
Terminating the main connector and building from that point allows for a neat uniform harness. Whilst also reducing the chance of wire fatigue in the harness. The main layout of the harness is formed using standard harness taping, or in some applications, variations of heat-shrinks or silicone glass sleeving. In the final steps of manufacturing each connector is terminated correctly and labelled as per the design schematics. The harness part number tag is then installed before the harness undergoes our quality control and testing process.
