WHAT IS WIRING HARNESS? A cable harness, also known as a wire harness, cable assembly, wiring assembly or wiring loom, is an assembly of cables or wires which transmit signals or electrical power. The cables are bound together by straps, cable ties, cable lacing, sleeves, electrical tape, conduit, a weave of extruded string, or a combination thereof.
WIRESWire is a single, usuallycylindrical, flexible strandor rod of metal. Wires areused to bear mechanicalloads and to carry electricityand telecommunication signals.

TERMINALSPush On Terminal Copper Terminal Correct way to put terminal on wires
CONNECTORSConnectors are used tomake connectionsFrom one deviceto another
CAPS & SLEEVESCaps are used to protect theterminals from beingdamaged. Sleeves are used to protect the wires from shrinking due to high currents.
FUSE BOX To protect the wire lines from short when high Intensity of current is passed.
MANUFACTURING PROCESSSTEP 1 Terminals are fixed on wires Then with the help of applicators wires are cut on CNC machine C n c machine
MANUFACTURING PROCESS(CONTD…)STEP 2 Quality of the wire is being checked by the Quality Analyst Parameters to be checked; PVC of the wire Terminals of the wire Width of the terminal
MANUFACTURING PROCESS(CONTD…)STEP 3Taping is done on thewires to protect themfrom moisture and heat
MANUFACTURING PROCESS(CONTD…) After taping, quality is checked Then packing is done And the final products are dispatched to the market.
SAFETY MEASURES (DO’S) Always keep the area around the machine clear of obstacles. Always put material where you can reach it. Always check that tools are sharp and set correctly. Always check that the correct tool data is entered into the CNC program Always make sure that all guards are in position while the machine is in operation. Always follow company policy on correct procedures when handling or lifting parts or tooling.
SAFETY MEASURESDONT: Do not use the machine table as a workbench. Do not use compressed air to blow chips from the parts of the machine, machine surfaces, cabinets, controls or floor around the machine.
ADVANTAGES Advantages over loose wires and cables Adverse effects of vibrations, abrasions, and moisture. Usage of space is optimized Risk of a short is decreased Installation time is decreased and the process can be easily standardized
