Cable processing

  • Design

On customer demand we undertake to develop cables, make prototypes and to compose accompanying documentations.

  • Wire cutting

While processing wires we have modern machinery available.
The cutting and stripping of single conductor wires take place using Komax equipment. The parameters for cutting can be stored in the memory of the machine, which reduces machine set-up time. Shorter and longer wires could be processed there as well.
The photo shows our latest Komax Gamma 333PC cable processing machine, which is capable of storing all the set-up parameters. The equipment cuts the wires to length, strips them, and mounts on the contacts on both ends. Built-in electronics control the conformance of crimping.

  • Crimping

When the crimping tools have been designed, produced and set, we inspect the mechanical settings and the conformance of crimping with the help of polished cross-sectional view, pull-force, and using contact resistance test. The inspection of the microsection is carried out with a microscope, and the data are stored in a computer.
The contacts are mounted on using pneumatic and electromechanic tools. The photo shows a crimping machine with self-developed safety finger protector in use.
Pneumatic crimping tool in use. The equipment strips the wires before mounting on the contacts. Production time can be reduced using the machine.

  • Inspection

We inspect the cable assemblies electrically and mechanically. The test results can be stored in the memory of the test equipment. A record of test results can be printed. High voltage tests are done on power cables. We provide a certificate of the successful test to the customer.
We use uniform test sheets, which ensure compact connection to the test equipment.

  • Cable confectioning

During confectioning it is possible to meet special customer demands. We use pneumatic and electric tools, machines to process the cables. The photo shows a stripping process.
Single-purpose machines help mechanical assembling. The photo shows the assembling of connector house using a manual press tool. The wires and cables are marked using shrink tubes or labels. The photo shows the shrinking of a marking shrink tube.

  • Making wire harnesses

Macher Ltd. produces cables for numeruous subfields of medical electronics, sensor and entertainment industry. The photo shows a random selection of some sample cables. Mechanical parts are either supplied by the customer or Macher Ltd. purchases them through their supply chain. When producing complex cables, we use assembly boards to carry out the assembling and final testing. This way electric tests can be done efficiently and production time could be reduced.

  • Assembling

Macher Ltd. undertakes to design, build-in of PCBs, to mount electric equipment and switch boards. On demand we undertake to assemble part units mechanically. The electric testing and setting of a finished unit take place on test benches.
