Tooling Facilities

"having constantly invested in wiring harness tooling over the past 30 years; we have a vast array of kit"

Over the years we have collected a vast array of tooling from simple hand tools to fully automated robotic CNC wiring harness preparation machines.

These machines are now so useful as crimping and wire technology gets smaller and smaller.  The Komax Gamma machines we run have crimp force analysers built into them that actually check every single crimp as it is terminated.  These machines can even tin wires automatically.

Producing top wiring harness on such machines reduces costs and this is what sets us aside from our competitors as the investment in this tooling would not be warranted for manufacturers purely based in motorsport wiring harness work.  However, the nature of the work still does mean that with turned pin contacts, hand crimping is still necessary.  But in some cases we can even get this onto one of our DMC pneumatic tools which semi-automates the crimping process.  We have over 100 hand crimping tools of various forms and these are all calibrated by ourselves in house.  Every batch of crimping we do has a first and last crimp tested to destruction.  What we test for is a good tensile test, crimp height and a gas tight joint.  These results are recorded onto every job sheet we raise and these results are filed for a minimum of 5 years.

As an ISO and UL approved manufacturer traceability is something we have been doing since we started. 

Some other tools we have are stripper crimpers, this will strip and crimp in a two stage operation when a wire is inserted onto a pressure pad. We have over 60 bench crimp applicators, tinning machines, 7 automatic cut and strip machines, automatic RF cable preparation machines, hot tweezers, inkjet wire printer to name just a few. A

ll tooling is maintained either in house or by manufacturers on at least an annual basis.  We have invested over £200,000 in test equipment ranging from Cirris CH2 and signature testers to hand held devices.  This is of course calibrated and checked each time we set up a test operation.  All test results are stored for 5 years minimum.
