Wire Harness Manufacturing Software

Harness Builder for E3.series

Harness Builder for E3.series is a powerful yet easy to use tool based on the proven E3.series toolset from Zuken. Created for harness manufacturers, it produces a synchronized BOM, harness drawings and wirelists all in one sheet.

Harness Manufacturers can now easily create their harness documentation from drawings and/or a wirelist in a short amount of time. Data sheets can be easily added to documentation. Pricing information, lead time and assembly time can also be calculated automatically.

Tech Tip: How to Make Configurable Electrical Designs in E3.series

The automation or configurability of designs is a goal every team wants to achieve, but most teams haven’t seen success mainly due to not having the right tool to get the job done. Electrical design tools that were once used by a vast number of companies originally came as extensions of mechanical design tools, or were very often just basic drafting tools. The ability to create exceptional designs without errors and do it in a fraction of the time required by other tools is the major reason why E3.series is so effective in helping design teams.


Tech Tip: Accelerated Electrical Designs with Excel and E3.series

We are all looking to gain productivity in our design cycle to save time and reduce costs. A good method to get a head start is to use Excel or a .csv file to get the design started and load devices into you project.


Webinar: Smart Tools for Power Industry Electrical Design

Designing that infrastructure with accuracy and speed is an essential element of the strategic outlook. A design in the generation and distribution space requires careful attention to detail in every aspect from concept all the way through to documentation.  A smart tool approach can double your productivity. This webinar will contrast and explore the smart tool approach with current practices.


Estimate Harness Costs with Harness Builder for E3.series

What presents itself as an apparent manufacturing quoting tool can quite effectively be used in all sections of the engineering and manufacturing process. From the initial quoting stage, right through to the final output on a formboard, 1:1 drawing can be printed directly from the application.


Webinar: What's New in E3.series 2017

We will demonstrate workflows that help designers take the next leap in productivity in various industries like aerospace, harness manufacturing, industrial machinery etc. The attendees will have a chance to ask questions and learn about the latest developments towards fully automating your design workflow.


Webinar: How to Detail a Harness to Reduce Manufacturing Costs and Time

This webinar will outline the best practices for creating harness manufacturing drawings. The overall cost of designing and manufacturing a harness can be drastically reduced by following a few simple steps. These cost reducing best practices are applicable to both in-house and outsourcing manufacturing.


Webinar: Wire Harness Manufacturing from Cost Estimates to Testing

Join Zuken and Cirris for this joint webinar. Wire harness manufacturers need a simple and quick process to create the wire harness design, estimate cost and generate quotations with manufacturing build documentation.


Webinar: Concurrent Design of Power Generation and Distribution Schematics and Panels

This webinar will cover the design of large electrical projects. A vital element of the design process is the tracking of nomenclature, device and cable functions, assignments and placement. This is for the accurate generation of complete Bills of Materials, Cabling Schedules and all documentation such as labels, manufacturing files and test data.
