Automatic crimp process for Datamate Trio-Tek contacts

This video demonstrates the automated crimp process that interconnect specialist, Harwin has developed for its Datamate Trio-Tek open barrel crimp contacts.

The new Datamate Trio-Tek auto-crimp contact is a patented design featuring a triangular form which simplifies crimping and enables customers to automate this part of the process for medium and high volume applications.

According to Harwin, it is the first automated or semi-automated system for high reliability contacts. The new Datamate Trio-Tek open barrel crimp contact has a latching feature which simplifies the insertion of contacts into the housing and can be quickly crimped automatically or semi-automatically.
