The insulation displacement connector (Idc) for household appliances allows implementing quickly safe and high precision connections while avoiding losses of time and money. With quality and safety under control.
Performing fast and precise connections in the household appliance wiring phase, without running the risk of making errors, avoids the losses of time and money in the installation phase and at the same time contributes in optimizing the operation itself of household appliances. The use of insulation displacement connectors (Idc) effectively satisfies this need because it allows speeding up the assembly of wirings themselves – in particular of washing machines, dishwashers and boilers – on the electrical card in the assembly line. The reduction of probabilities of wrong operations is connected both with the machining and assembly process and with the constant control of the product in the implementation phase. This is the activity of Realcable, specialized in the industrialization, production and testing in standard and Idc technology, assembly of control panels and electrical BT board for industry.
PERFORATION AND NOT REMOVAL
Unlike the traditional seaming, which provides for the removal of the insulation in connection phase, the Insulation Displacement Connections, IDC, carries out the connection without removing but simply perforating the insulation itself.
The technology based on the Idc wiring allows speeding up production and optimizing its costs with higher speed in the assembly processes of wirings on the electrical card in the assembly line.
ASSEMBLING UNDER CONTROL
The constant quality control is an essential step to manage the full efficiency of the electrical wiring in Idc technology. For Realcable quality is systematically tested on the machine, which tests the wiring itself by 100 per cent. Before the final assembling phase, in the production course, the semi-finished parts undergo phases of random and series control.
The insulation displacement process is carried out by automated machines that carry out continuity tests on each produced module. They control the tensile strength values, the cable position as to the connector and the strand distribution by means of micrograph examinations on samples of embedded resin connectors.
The surveyed data are registered in a database and analysed by control cards, frequency diaphragms and capability indexes.
|FOCUS ON WIRING
Realcable, headquartered in Pordenone (135 employees, 5 factories, over 10,000 square metres of covered surface, 100 automated and semi-automated machines, 250 mini-applicators, 17,000 kilometres of worked cable every year, 7 million wirings, 42,000 boards and 150,000 electrical panels), is the main productive reality of a group of associated companies operating in the wiring subcontracting for industry, addressing sectors that include conditioning, automatic distribution, household appliances, food, fitness and aerospace industry.
Specialized in the production of cables, wirings, electrical boards and panels customized according to customers’ requirements, Realcable focuses on the industrialization, production and testing of electrical wirings in standard and Idc technology (insulation displacement process), in the assembly of control panels and electrical BT boards for industry, of which it takes care of all phases in conformity with the requisites of the regulation for quality management systems Uni En Iso 9001:2008, with the support of a wide fleet of automatic and semi-automatic machines, a broad range of mini-applicators and the use of cutting-edge technologies for the product testing.
