Connector Application Tooling

 

Application tooling is the equipment used to apply wires to connectors or connectors to printed circuit boards. Examples include wire and insulation crimping, insulation displacement, resistance and ultrasonic welding, robotic end effectors, terminal removal tools, and PCB press fit tooling. The tooling may be as simple as hand-held crimpers, or as complex as fully automated harness makers. Selecting the proper application tooling is necessary to optimize the applied cost of connectors. Application tooling must be taken into consideration during connector development and when selecting a connector for the application.

 

APEX is experienced in designing, specifying, selecting, purchasing, and valiadating all levels of connector application equipment.
