Headroom: Understanding Crimp Sensitivity

Last month we introduced Crimp Force Monitoring: Optimizing Crimp Performance. The CFM Cycle as described is a real situation that a number of companies find themselves in. Optimizing the crimp process can help to exit the CFM cycle.

A terminal crimp as simple as it appears, involves several inputs. Wire, terminal, crimp tooling, the crimp press and operator (bench) or automated machine are all factors which can directly affect crimp quality and ultimately the performance and longevity of the product the wiring is installed in.

Headroom analysis is a valuable indicator of Crimp Sensitivity. Headroom isolates the wire and terminal and the match between the two.


Want to hear more? Contact us right away and we will show you how Crimp Performance Optimization can help your crimp processes.
Technology of the Month: Judco Focus Lite
Cost savings come in different ways. Time savings is one which companies primarily focus on. Reduction in labor costs provides a direct improvement to profitability. But often lost in the mix are the indirect savings. Still they can impact profitability as much. Energy savings for example.

The Focus Lite from Judco Mfg provides Time (labor) and Energy savings in one package. The Focus Lite processes heat shrink tube using quartz halogen bulbs. The energy from the bulbs is focused off mirrored surfaces onto the material to be processed. This light energy shrinks tube faster and with less energy than a typical heat gun. On demand use (vs always on heat guns) on top of the efficient application of quartz halogen bulbs is how the Focus Lite can reduce wire harness assembly costs.

See for yourself. Visit
Judco on and view the Focus Lite in action. Click on the link to the Cost Savings Worksheet to compare your current cost to the cost of processing heat shrink tube using your present method. Then Connect Your Way to WPS.
