Today’s automotive wire harness manufacturing process involves a high volume of manual work. However, current and future application requirements like miniaturization of electronic components, monitoring of process parameters, increasing demand of process documentation and rising wages call for a higher degree of automation.
This paper presents the state of the art in wire harness assembly, reviews currently available special purpose machinery and equipment as well as their limitations and highlights the challenges of automation. It discusses potentials for automation, current innovations and research and concludes with an overview of current trends in the automotive industry.
