Micro-section analyses – quality verification

Cables transmit signals or energy. They have to function reliably for a long time and remain failure-free. The requirements apply for every cable in the medical technology area and equally for the automotive branch. As a service provider for cable confections, in-Tec Bensheim produces both shielded and unshielded cables, multicore special cables, cable harnesses, data and communication lines, as well as round and flat strands.

In our micro-section laboratory, for instance, we verify whether the cores or crimp contacts have the required quality. A micro-section investigation provides microscopic certainty regarding the quality. Among others, we investigate how evenly a crimped contact has been pressed and whether it is gas-tight. The better the crimping, the smaller the resistance of the line. Also, the behaviour with regard to tear or temperature fluctuations can be analysed by means of this.

Among the controlling standards is the verification of the cores or the crimp height. Should this be agreed with the customers, in-Tec Bensheim will set up a test plan that takes into account all significant norms and constantly documents the production.

A reliable partner for cable confectioning

Not every cable confectioner has an own micro-section laboratory. in-Tec Bensheim supports companies in this branch in a collegial and reliable manner, assisting them in securing their product quality or testing the functionality of their crimp tools. With a micro-section analysis, it can be established whether a device is properly adjusted or whether it has to be serviced.
