CY1000 Wiring Harness Automation Cell


The CY1000 5-axis CNC additive manufacturing robotic cell automatically, economically, and securely adds components, connections, and conductors into products or components made of metal, ceramic or polymer. The company calls its unique process 'Electrical Function Integration'. It eliminates the need for separate, expensive, fault-prone wiring harnesses, minimizes design constraints, improves reliability, and cut costs. The self-contained CY1000 manufacturing cell means that wiring can be co-located with the final assembly, eliminating the costly transportation of heavy harnesses.


With a steel-frame gantry and robotic platform, it's designed for stand-alone use or for easy integration as part of a process line, where it offers full-depth access for robotic loading. Each machine can use a variety of specialized tools to add bare or insulated wire and extrude a wide range of polymers from Nylon to PEEK and Kydex. It can also pick and place electrical connectors and components. The CY1000 creates 3D shapes, adds components, and connects them to each together with precision integrated wiring.


Large components or parts (up to  3ft (1 m) in diameter), or multiple smaller parts, can be formed by molding, stamping, or other traditional methods before being loaded into the manufacturing cell, which locates the part and adds electrical functions as specified by the designer using a CAD/CAM based on Siemens NX, but with a bespoke motion controller, post-processor, simulator, and other tools.


The working area is 3 ft (1 m) in diameter and 12 in. (300 mm) in height. The X and Y axes operate at 3 ft/s (1 m/s), the Z axis at 1.5 ft/s (0.5m/s), and the head and bed axes move at up to 70 rpm. The machine is controlled via a touch screen and keyboard. In addition to control functions, the screen provides an overview of the manufacturing platform status and performance, and displays productivity and quality data, if this is available.


The CY1000, which is customized for each application, is supplied with polymer and wiring end effectors. The wiring may be bare or insulated copper, up to 0.1 in. (3 mm) in diameter.


The company states that conductive ink end effectors will be available in Q3 2023.
