Testing is critical to assuring that all assemblies are properly wired before our customers install them into their units. Every assembly is 100% continuity tested using Cirris Test Software. Test plans are controlled by engineering with revision control and 1st Article verification. All test data is maintained and can be tracked to a particular harness. Test software can also validate proper resistor values, diode turn on voltage and polarity, capacitance, etc. Also, test plans are configured to verify fuse blocks are wired so that circuits are fused properly.Contact Us
Crimp Force Monitoring
Crimp Force Monitoring is essential to assuring quality built wiring harnesses. Crimp Force Monitoring is performed in a manner to assure that equipment is properly set up for each production run. Data collected will also show trends to assure all presses are properly calibrated and that tooling is not wearing. All crimp force data collected must exceed the process control limit which exceeds all spec limits for the specified terminal.Contact Us
Full Production Process Traceability
Automated Process Control allows Martin Interconnect to have Full Production Process Traceability. What does this mean? Each harness assembly produced by Martin Interconnect contains a harness label. From the information provided on this label Martin Interconnect can detail all of the following:
- When every movement occurred from Process to Process
- Any time the assembly went on hold, for what and who cleared it
- Any rework that was performed due to misprocessing or revision update
- Test Data collected and to which version of the test software it was tested
1st Article / PPAP
First Article verification is essential when producing new products. Throughout our process there are multiple built in checks and balances to assure that processes are set up properly. There are first article verifications required at Assemble (Layout Board), Test (Test Plan) and Final Visual (Inspection Criteria). First Article Verifications are required by production and engineering staff during all three process to assure that everything is set up properly for production.
Some customers require PPAP documentation. This is a service that we provide free of charge and is automated within our system.
