With the increasing usage of electrical devices and electronics, and the dependency we have on them, more and more complex equipment with advanced technologies are coming up. And, all these complex equipment require innumerous wires to be installed in them. To make it easy to install, maintain, manage, repair, and replace these innumerous wires, wire harnesses are used.
Great emphasis is casted on wire harnesses that connect these various systems, providing and distributing electrical power and signals. The usage of wire harnesses is only expected to escalate as companies continue to advance technologies and meet customer demands. This in turn is expected to drive growth in the wire harness manufacturing industry. But, with growth, comes lots of challenges and pressures too. Every wire harness manufacturer in India is required to meet very tight timelines and exacting quality requirements, while also minimizing production costs, in order to maintain a competitive position in the market. To be able to cope up with all these challenges and pressures, manufacturers are trying to come up with automated procedures to satisfy and support the required configurations of the equipment. Automated procedures can decrease production times and increase efficiency of production processes.
But, is it possible to completely automate it all to improve the wire harness design? Well, there are certain areas where there are opportunities for this possibility and the chance for improvement, which we will discuss in the blog below.
Reducing wire harness design cycle time and cost
Two processes can reduce the designing time and cost of a wire harness, which include automated harness engineering and validation, and subassemblies to streamline production design.
Reducing wire harness manufacturing turnaround time and costs
In order to reduce the wire harness manufacturing turnaround time and costs, there is a lot that is required, such as full-scale formboard layout and fixtures, effective formboard utilization, factory modeling and bill-of-process generation, time and cost calculations that can increase assembly process efficiency, balancing tasks across a harness production line, and producing ready-to-use work instructions for every stage of the assembly.
Improving product and process quality
Along with reduction of time, there is required improved quality too, which can be brought about by controlled and automated change management, and digital continuity design through production.
All of the above processes when followed can enhance the ability of manufacturers to produce advanced wire harnesses with improved quality on increasingly tight timelines. Such digital transformation can help to grow revenues, increase profitability, and ensure the future success of wire harness manufacturing businesses in even the most competitive environment.
Miracle Electronics is one such wire harness manufacturer in India who works on all of the above processes and more to ensure high quality wire harnesses produced and delivered on time to every customer. Quality of every wire harness produced here is confirmed as each product is tested for dimension, weight, continuity, Hi-Pot, pull test, and environment compliance tests. Also, every production process is certified for quality to ISO 9001, AS9100C; and the quality of each harness is certified and approved by DGAQA and MSQAA for platform specific applications.
