Investing in the right wire crimping machine for medical instrumentation is an important consideration to meet the routine demands of any production facility. Though there are a large variety of different types of cable crimping machines, finding one that meets the exacting needs of medical instrumentation is key to keeping high standards of quality control. So if you're interested in investing in machinery that can serve as a reliable workhorse for your instrumentation production facility, there are a few things your next machine should include.
Efficiency In Production
You always want to invest in a crimping machine that works in an efficient way, reducing the amount of time it takes to process wiring and give an optimal end result. Efficient and fast crimping technology can help you to reach other legs of processing faster, so you can meet production needs with lower overall cost. If you have efficient crimping technology, you have a better chance of increasing instrumentation output.
Versatility Is Crucial
Versatility is an important consideration for medical instrumentation wire crimping because you need to use a machine that can handle different tasks at different rates. Though automation and semi-automation controls give you liberty to adjust speed and output, you still need to use a machine that's capable of doing a wide range of tasks, like single and double crimping, twisting, sealing and sleeve insertion. Crimping is a critical step in instrumentation production, but selecting a machine that only does one task limits your production efficiency. So look for a machine that's capable of handling different loads, size of wires, and varying tasks, at least in sequence if not simultaneously.
Applicability and Utility In Your Facility
For your production facility, you should rely on crimping machinery that is universally applicable to different types of products for both current and future usage. But using technology that's user-friendly and universally accessible to all personnel is a must also. So beyond investing in a machine that's versatile, you need to invest in technology that's easy for all of your employees to operate and includes software that's straightforward and available in different languages as well.
Considering your output and handling capacities, you may also want to consider semi-automated machines where user control and small batches are a priority or automated machinery where demand on a specific product is greater. Automated controls are also more applicable in situations where you have limited personnel that operate the machinery, so training and specialization isn't as necessary as semi-automated machines that require some human oversight.
