High Trust Relationships
High Trust Relationships are a core part of our Values Statement. For over four decades this has been a bedrock value. 

Trust is an aspect of every relationship, personally and professionally. Growing trust takes time. In commercial transactions, trust precedes the actual connection between businesses. Intentionally working for the best interest of the other party deepens the trust bond. 

We value all of the business relationships that span the forty years WPS has been serving our industry. Whether is the new business connection we started last week or the decades old ones, our drive to deepen the trust bond is our daily obsession.

Helping Many to Achieve More is not a catch phrase. It is completely and fully connected to our core values. Our unshakable commitment to support your operations with solutions that improve production efficiency, quality and reduce processing costs.

Upstream Quality Factors: Wire
A wire crimp is a very simple process: take a wire and terminal, force them together using a range of crimping tools and voila, a crimped wire.

quality wire crimp is altogether different. Not so much in the crimp process, it is somewhat the same. But ensuring the wire performs well over the life of the product and the process to assemble that wire with repeatable quality requires specialized knowledge. And application of that knowledge to the crimp process. This is very critical in electrical assembly today with the cost of failure (rejects, re-work, loss of customer confidence, liability) being so high.

We have covered a number of topics directly related to crimp quality. Such as Headroom, wire to crimp process sensitivity. Also Crimp Tool Setup Variability. Using tools such as Crimp Cross Section Analysis and Crimp Monitors to validate and monitor crimp quality.

In this post, we are going to move "upstream" and consider the effect of the wire itself to the crimp process. Considering the elements of the wire and the effect on process variation. Also the process (cut and strip) to prepare the wire for crimping.

Technology of the Month: Megomat 500
The Megomat 500 is a fully automated wire processing machine with all servo motion. With two crimp presses and two additional stations for other processing options, the 500 provides power and flexibility normally found in premium level processing machines, but at an entry level price.

The Megomat 500 continues in the tradition of the Primo XLT. WireStar20 is state of the art software for controlling the 500's motions and storing single wires and production lists. WireStar 20 is networkable so single wire and production lists can be created offline and uploaded to the 500.

Processing options include wire doubling, tin tipping, laser wire stripping and seal application.

Our association with Schaefer Megomat spans over two decades and in that time, we have assisted countless customers with their automation requirements. 

Crimp Performance Optimization, our program for optimizing the crimp process is the perfect companion to the Megomat 500 or the other Megomat series platforms. Get started right and armed with the equipment and tools to assure precise and ultra quality wire leads.

The 18th Electrical Wire Processing Technology Expo is just around the corner. This is the marque event for the wire processing industry in North America. Milwaukee hospitality at it's finest. There's still time, don't wait, register now. Click here.

Preparations are in high gear with our Global Technology Partners for the Expo. I am excited about some of the new products that will be displayed.  And we expect have a special announcement around show time.

Next month is our pre-show issue, watch for it.
