The electric CS800 machine enables harness assemblers to cut and fully or partially strip wire sized 30 to 10 AWG. It can produce 6,150 pieces per hour for 2.5-inch-long segments or 5,700 pieces per hour for 4-inch-long segments. Fully programmable, the machine uses prompts to help the opera-tor quickly set up operating parameters. The stores 67 programs. To ensure accuracy and high-speed production, the machine may be paired with the WS1 wire straightener or a dereeling sys-tem.

The Seal Loader 4000 installs weather seals on the ends of wires. It can be used on all fully automatic wire processing machines from Schleuniger and third-party suppliers. It is also able to accommodate third-party seal kits through the newly developed Seal Kit Carrier option. Compared with previous Schleuniger sealing stations, the Seal Loader 4000 achieves a 15 percent higher production rate per hour. The new motorized Z axis is controlled via software, which allows finely adjustable control of the pin while maintaining higher processing speeds. This maximizes production output and the quality of the seal insertion process. Application-specific parameters are preset via the software. This speeds up the entire process, prevents incorrect settings, and ensures fewer rejects.
Ideal for attaching machined contacts, the AFM8 miniature crimp tool has interchangeable positioners that enable it to crimp wire sized 32 to 20 AWG. Qualified to MIL-DTL-22520/2 and AS22520/2, the tool is designed for most miniature and subminiature connectors from Amphenol, Glenair, TE, Deutsch Connectors and other suppliers. The tool produces a military-standard eight-impression crimp for maximum tensile strength. The cycle-controlled precision ratchet assures consistently accurate crimps every time. The tool frame has a built-in eight-step selector knob for ease in dialing the correct crimp depth setting for the wire being used. Positioners adapt the tool frame to a particular application. The data plate on each positioner designates which contacts the positioner accommodates for its wire size and indicates selector position. The positioner is easily removed and changed.

Chrome-plated gravure printing wheels are designed for printing on insulated wire, cable, hose, tubing, and extruded profiles. A side-mark on the wheels enables manufacturers to add their internal part numbers to a wheel for easy transitions from one production job to the next. A second layer of chrome plating boosts performance, durability and functionality. Convex wheels are perfect for printing on soft products such as tubing or hose, without leaving wheel edge marks. Embossed wheels provide a raised legend above the wire jacket to create raised wire lettering. Flat and concave wheels are available in different sizes. Indent marking wheels make an imprinted legend on a wire or core. The wheel’s raised lettering create indented legends on a wire’s surface.
If the melting points of two parts or their material properties diverge to such an extent that a high-quality welded connection is hard to achieve, the parts can be soldered instead. Application-specific solders provide high peel strength and separation force. Soldered connections have also have good electrical conduction. The soldering sequence is customized for each application. Solder wire is fed by a motorized unwinder with closed-loop control. Sensors ensure the quantity and position of the solder wire supplied to the joint.

Binder USA has introduced a new short version of its series 423 M16 connector. These compact “shieldable” cable plugs and sockets, each with cable clamp, are available in 10 solderable and five crimpable versions, both male and female, to suit various pin counts. They are ideal for applications where space is tight and IP67-level protection is required, such as sensor and actuator technology, test and measurement, automation and industrial controls, and process technology. Solderable versions are designed for maximum wire gauges of 0.75 square millimeters or 18 AWG (two to eight pins), and 0.25 square millimeters or 24 AWG (12 to 19 pins). Rated voltages are 32 or 150 volts, depending on the pin count, with rated impulse voltages of 500 or 1.500 volts, respectively. Rated currents at 40 C range from 3 to 7 amps. All solderable products are equipped with brass contacts and sockets and are specified for a temperature range from -30 to 95 C. Crimpable products are designed for wire gauges of 0.14 to 1 square millimeters or 26 to 18 AWG (four to six pins), and for 0.14 to 0.75 square millimeters or 26 to 20 AWG (seven to eight pins). Rated voltages are 32 or 150 volts, with rated impulse voltages are 500 or 1,500 volts. Rated currents are 5 or 6 amps, respectively. The temperature range extends from -40 to 100 C.
Thanks to its split design, the new KTMBS series grommets are used for routing pre-assembled and non-assembled cables. Twelve grommet sizes are available. The entire grommet series covers a clamping range of 4 to 29 millimeters of cable diameter. The split side of the grommet is perforated with an innovative wave cut. This corrugated cut and the flexible membrane of the grommet enable increased sealing of the routed cables. Cable diameter can vary up to 3 millimeters due to the membrane. That gives engineers leeway in design: If the exact cable diameter is not known before installation, the installer can react quickly and flexibly with the KTMBS grommet. Made of elastomer, the grommet does not contain silicone or halogen. The operating temperature range is -40 to 100 C.
A full line of standard and custom OEM spark plug and distributor terminals, insulation boots and battery terminals are available. Manufactured in the USA, parts comply with IATF, SAE and ISO requirements. Designed to simplify automated and manual assembly operations for OEMs and harness makers, parts can be supplied in strip form or loose. They can be stamped from brass, tinned steels, stainless steels, beryllium copper, phosphor bronze and other alloys with thicknesses ranging from 0.006 to 0.078 inch and tolerances to 0.0005 inch.
