Wire Processing & Process Monitoring Products

Wire Processing


  • A cost-effective, robust crimp force monitor that works with virtually all bench wire processing machines.
  • High performing, simple to use and cost-effective.
Proven Wire Crimp Analysis
  • The system captures the crimp force signature over time, and compares this signature to the reference or “learned” signature using OES’s patented CDA algorithm
  • Signature analysis of the region within the “box” discriminates between normal and abnormal cycle signatures that identify a defective crimp
Machine Control
  • Output relays can be configured to control the press machine
  • Interface with chopper equipment
Operator Friendly Design
  • Menu-driven interface supports quick setup
  • Multicolor graphic display of signature, inspection region, and tolerance bar relative to control limits
  • Two levels of defect detection with flashing amber display for suspect crimps and bright red display for crimp defects
  • Simple-to-use “Learn” function after setup for a new process
  • Audible alert following a crimp defect
  • Production Counter maintains a running total of good crimps, suspect crimps and defective crimps
  • Password controls for supervisory access to configuration routines and tolerance controls
Quick Start Setup
  • The menu-driven, interface makes setup simple and fast
Monitoring and Data Logging
  • ForceView software running on a PC interfaces with the CFM1000 to support capability studies, setup, monitoring and analyzing process trends relative to control tolerances, and data logging.
  • Immediately color graphs of crimp process signatures are displayed on ForceView for Windows showing any trend relative to configurable upper and lower tolerances.
