Automating the manufacture of wiring Harnesses

Wiring harnesses are used in everything from fridges to fighter planes. They are still manufactured by hand in much the same way as they have been for over 100 years.

Q5D is developing machine tools that can automate their production.

Advantages

This new technology will be hugely disruptive to current business models. Manufacturing and installing wiring harnesses is the slowest, most labour-intensive parts of a manufacturing process. Automating this has a huge number of advantages, including:
