Wire harness assembly manufacturers must adhere strictly to industry standards if the highest levels of quality are to be attained and maintained.
The current standards for ultrasonic wire splicing and termination have been developed globally by both industry OEMs and their Tier1 suppliers. One recent standard starting to be used commonly are SAE/USCAR 45 for wire splicing, and the SAE/USCAR 38 for wire termination.
There are several opportunities to follow best practice guidelines for ultrasonic welding, initially during trials in the laboratory and ultimately in the production plant environment where process validation takes place. Necessary information and easily accessible visual display for quick reference can be very effective for the staff in the plant and the development laboratory.
Based upon existing industry specifications and valuable contributions from many of our customers, Telsonic has produced an informative single page poster to act as a guide covering common wire splicing and wire termination welding applications. Important quality and operational criteria are highlighted using text and images, together with test criteria and a useful table of wire sizes.
Access to this user-friendly guide will enhance user confidence in the operation of ultrasonic technology for metal welding which in turn will enhance consistency and quality on every application.
The poster is available in landscape format size A0 (4619/24” x 331/8“, 119 cm x 84 cm). If you are interested in obtaining this Telsonic “Ultrasonic Metal Welding Quality Guideline” poster, please send an email to [email protected].
