DVD-59C – DVD: Wire Preparation with Training Certification

A visual introduction to wire preparation for wire harness manufacturing. This DVD begins by explaining wire types, characteristics, AWG, and insulation. Explains typical setup and operation of manual, semi-automatic, and fully automatic wire strippers for low, medium and high volume applications. Defines parameters for cut and strip length, partial strips, cutting depth, wayback values, feed rates, and cut speed. Demonstrates stripping of insulation off multi-conductor cables, removing insulation from large diameter cables, out of round, and twisted-shielded pairs. Includes multiple-step stripping of coaxial cables, and tough insulation. Reviews typical problems including jam-ups and wire curling. Provides evaluation guidelines for nicks, scrapes, broken strands, insulation damage, frays and reduced insulation thickness. Also covers wire tinning and operator safety. An excellent introduction for new hires. Produced in cooperation with the Wire Harness Manufacturers Association. Includes Leader’s Guide, Final Exam and Transcript.
