Intelligent manufacturing of wire harnesses



Wire Harness Design and Manufacturing Ecosystem

The increasing complexity and demand for wire harnesses are changing the competitive landscape. The traditional manual, labor-intensive wire harness design and manufacturing processes are largely obsolete. An efficient wire harness design for the manufacturing process needs a solid ecosystem of intelligent systems collaborating to produce the best results in the least time at the lowest price.

The E3.series wire harness ecosystem empowers wire harness engineers to take advantage of innovative automated test, assembly and manufacturing solutions to stay ahead of the competition.

E3.cable is used to design and document cable plans and cable harness drawings. E3.cable is an extension of E3.schematic to combine individual wires into multicores or cable bundles, add shielding and twisted pair structures to the multicores, and automatically display them in the schematic.
Complete systems and subsystems such as control units, rack equipment, or even black boxes can be replicated as functional blocks in a hierarchical design.

E3.series circuit diagram and connection information can be exchanged with all major MCAD systems using the E3.RoutingBridge. With E3.RoutingBridge, electrical component information such as connectors, pins and splices is transferred to the mechanical design department, where it can be laid out in 3D and checked for bending radius violations and collisions. The wiring harness and segment lengths determined are then returned to E3.series for the generation of the manufacturing documentation. The cooperation between E3.series and the MCAD tool of your choice enables the simultaneous development of mechanical and electrical engineering. Mechanical and electrical engineers can work independently or together as required.
