Form Boards

Form Boards for complex and/or large harnesses

Form boards for cable assemblies are specialized fixtures or templates used in the manufacturing process of cable harnesses. These boards or in some cases, 3D fixtures, are designed to provide a structured and organized platform for assembling complex or large cable harnesses. The form board serves as a guide during the assembly process, ensuring that cables, wires, and connectors are arranged and routed precisely according to the design specifications.

Key features and purposes of form boards for cable assemblies include:

  • Customized Design: Form boards are customized to match the specific layout and configuration of each cable harness. The design of the board corresponds to the intricate paths, bends, and connection points specified in the cable assembly design.

  • Streamlined Assembly: The form board serves as a tool to streamline the assembly process. It provides a structured layout, allowing technicians to systematically route cables and secure connectors, minimizing errors and ensuring a consistent and efficient assembly.

  • Complex Cable Routing: For cable harnesses with complex routing requirements, form boards or 3D Fixtures offer a solution for managing and organizing the intricate paths of multiple cables. This is particularly valuable in applications where precise cable placement is critical for optimal performance.

  • Efficiency and Consistency: Form boards contribute to efficiency and consistency in the manufacturing process. They enable technicians to follow a standardized procedure, reducing the likelihood of variations in assembly and ensuring that each harness adheres to the specified design.

  • Optimized Workflow: With the aid of form boards, the workflow is optimized as technicians can work systematically and methodically. The boards provide a clear structure, allowing for a more organized and controlled assembly environment.

  • Quality Assurance: The use of form boards enhances quality assurance in cable assembly. By following a predefined layout, technicians can ensure that each cable and connector is accurately placed, contributing to the overall reliability and performance of the cable harness.

Form boards are especially beneficial when dealing with cable assemblies for complex systems, such as those used in aerospace, automotive, or industrial applications. They play a crucial role in achieving precision, reducing assembly time, and maintaining consistency in the manufacturing process.
