Why manufacturers have difficulty automating wire harness assemblies?


The manufacturing process for wire harnesses is still highly manual because of the many different processes involved.

  • Inserting wires through sleeves.
  • Using fabric tape for tapping.
  • Adding connecting terminals onto wires, sometimes more than one wire goes into one terminal
  • Inserting sleeves on top of others
  • Fastening strands with tape, clamps, or cable ties.

Automating this process is way too complicated, and small to big suppliers still use manual methods, as it is more cost-effective, especially when dealing with small to medium size orders.

For example, like the picture above, this is our company's assembly board and part of our products.

The wiring harness assembly needs to use the assembly board, and need to complete the fixing on the assembly board, this step is difficult to achieve mechanical automation
