Wire Processing & Process Monitoring Products
Wire ProcessingAssurance of Crimp Quality in Wire Processing This book will provide the reader with a practical understanding of the crimp monitors, their purpose, function, and importance for the assurance of crimp quality in wire processing. Many commonly asked and re-occurring questions and misconceptions are explained including how to optimize, benchmark and validate crimp monitors for different crimping processes. Crimp monitor performance is affected by the capability of the wire processing equipment, the materials being crimped, and the process. Each of these categories are analyzed in detail along with their influence on the crimp monitor performance. Connectivity of crimp monitors to a central crimp data management system is an effective way to improve operational efficiency, productivity, and profitability in this highly competitive industry. This book provides a guideline and comprehensive plan on how to implement a crimp data management system. This book will also serve as an educational tool and quick reference guide to help support operations personnel understand crimp monitor systems, their application for different crimping equipment and processes, and best practices for optimum performance on the plant floor.
