PROVEN WIRE CRIMP ANALYSIS The system captures the crimp force signature over time, and compares this signature to the reference or “learned” signature using OES’s patented CDA algorithm Signature analysis of the region within the “box” discriminates between normal and abnormal cycle signatures that identify a defective crimp
MACHINE CONTROL Output relays can be configured to control the press machine Interface with chopper equipment
OPERATOR FRIENDLY DESIGN Menu-driven interface supports quick setup Multicolor graphic display of signature, inspection region, and tolerance bar relative to control limits Two levels of defect detection with flashing amber display for suspect crimps and bright red display for crimp defects Simple-to-use “Learn” function after setup for a new process Audible alert following a crimp defect Production Counter maintains a running total of good crimps, suspect crimps and defective crimps Password controls for supervisory access to configuration routines and tolerance controls
QUICK START SETUP The menu-driven, interface makes setup simple and fast
MONITORING AND DATA LOGGING ForceView software running on a PC interfaces with the CFM1000 to support capability studies, setup, monitoring and analyzing process trends relative to control tolerances, and data logging. Immediately color graphs of crimp process signatures are displayed on ForceView for Windows showing any trend relative to configurable upper and lower tolerances.
The FORCEView CFM2103/2203 - Crimp Force Monitor for fully Automatic cut, strip and terminate machines
The new CFM2203 crimp force monitoring system can be installed on most cut strip and terminate machines on the market, with a full spc data capture package, the system can detect bad crimping & stop the machine during production, saving time, inspection and poor quality.
RELIABILITY Crimp defects are effectively detected and differentiated from normal crimp process variation. In-process monitoring and detection of crimp defects including insulation inside conductor crimp, missing strands, change in crimp, dimension, deformed crimp, twisted terminal, worn or broken tooling, change in crimp material, variation in the crimp bell mouth.
FLEXIBILITY Adaptable to a wide range of automatic wire processing machines. Configurable features and options for integration with the wire processing machine functions. Data management features for data logging. exporting, and part number entry and management. Language configurable
TRACEABILITY 100% production traceability when connected to ForceView 3. Stores data for playback or export into production and quality reports.
PERFORMANCE Advanced crimp force algorithms deliver the highest level of crimp defect detection with minimum false rejects. Consistent and reliable crimp defect detection for a wide range of terminal and wire crimping combinations. Common configuration settings support efficient and error-free machine setup. ForceView 3 displays graphic detail of the crimping process, reveals process variation associated with crimping defects, and variations in the process.
