Cable coding solution for cable harness company
Parkinson Harness Technology, based in Boston, UK, has found that operators don’t need to read a manual before using the Linx 10 for the first time.
Parkinson Harness is a leading producer of wiring harnesses, control panels, battery/power leads, PCBs and control systems. The business needed a compact and flexible coding solution to print onto its range of cables used in wiring systems for the automotive industry.
The cables, most of which have a PVC sheath, are coded and cut into various lengths in small batches, leading to very frequent code changes. The company’s previous printer required complicated code changes, was not easy to clean or operate, and proved too large for the production line.
The Linx 10 printer’s compact dimensions enable it to fit easily into the small space available in the production area. Codes are easy to set up and change with the intuitive colour touch screen, enabling operators at any level to input the information themselves. This saves time and reduces the risk of incorrectly coded products reaching the end customer.
