Cable assembly is a task for specialists

They are found in all areas of modern-day life: cables transfer energy or signals on application devices – in electrical engineering, medical technology or automotive engineering.

Depending on the task to be performed, every cable has its individual requirements. When dealing with the manufacturing of precise data and communication lines, shielded and unshielded cables, cable harnesses, multi-core special cables or round and flat braids, expert and exacting dexterity and craftsmanship is called for.

Cables with special demands

With a manufacturing rate of more than 220.000 pieces per year, in-Tec Bensheim has specialised in the assembly of high-quality cables with special demands, especially for the medical technology industry. We manufacture in accordance with specifications, yet also support customers with the conception of cables and wiring.

Machines are utilised in the course of manufacturing, crimping, cutting-to-length and automatic insulation. It goes without saying that small and medium-sized series are manufactured in accordance with the same standards that are used for major series and also by taking account of the mandatory norms and guidelines.

Devices verify the cable quality

Cutting to length, stripping, soldering, tinning and the assembly of plug-in connections – cables must provide a consistent and long-lasting service. Whether the cables have the required quality, is verified in detail at in-Tec Bensheim: The crimp connections are checked with a so-called pull-tester. Crimped connectors and cables are pulled apart at varying traction speeds. The dimensional results, which can also take account of tearing curves, are automatically recorded in the computer and documented in the common file format (excel).

By means of a micro-section analysis, the crimp contacts can be inspected microscopically in great precision. in-Tec Bensheim has a micro-section laboratory, where micro-section inspections are performed. This can be agreed on within the context of a test plan.
