Crimp Monitors

Quality Control on Every Crimp

An endless variety of metal materials can be bent and shaped into wires, and any wire can be crimped. From automotive and aerospace to healthcare and defence, the crimping of wires is a standard manufacturing process and spans various industries. Achieving a quality crimp is critical, as even the smallest of defects can impact the reliability of the terminal and wire connections.

Monitoring the process and tracing the problem to the source, before additional costs are incurred, is the most progressive way of ensuring crimp quality assurance. Typical issues identified using in-process monitoring and crimp defect analysis include:

  • Missing wires, crimps, or strands
  • Insulation in the crimps
  • Change in crimp dimension
  • Deformed or double crimps
  • Debris caught in the terminal
  • Worn or broken tooling
  • Incorrect wire size
  • Improper placement
  • Change in crimp material
  • Variation in the crimp bell mouth

Our industry leading crimp force monitor (CFM) solutions provide accurate, effective, real-time crimp force monitoring to detect all these defects and more.
