Zuken USA Announces Process Integration with Delta Sigma Company

Harness Builder for E3.series to drive ProjectionWorks for easy design through manufacture

March 28, 2019 – Westford, MA, USA – Zuken USA announces Harness Builder for E3.series, part of Zuken’s popular electrical harness design suite of tools will have capabilities to directly drive Delta Sigma Company’s ProjectionWorks. E3.series users can now easily take advantage of an enhanced manufacturing capability utilizing augmented reality. ProjectionWorks, an award-winning manufacturing automation solution, uses projection technology to provide step by step visual instructions for harness assembly. By visualizing the cable assembly connection points, routing, and instructions, manufacturing productivity is dramatically improved.

Harness Builder for E³.series supports the custom wire and cable harness market and is designed to be used by harness manufacturers for the accurate quotation and full creation of nail-board/peg-board documentation. Harness manufacturers can now easily create harness documentation from drawings and/or a wire list quickly and accurately. Using Harness Builder for E3.series for design, combined with ProjectionWorks for assembly, it is now possible to quickly produce harness estimates in parallel with designing the wire harness. High-accuracy data is output directly to manufacturing, increasing overall productivity.

Harness Builder for E3.series utilizes an extensive database of connectors, cables, and wires with the modeled clips and cable protection to detail a complete wire harness. The information is then passed to ProjectionWorks for sequencing of tasks. From there, the wires and cables can be sent directly to state-of-the-art wire cut and labeling machines. Working notes and part positioning are projected directly to a formboard to facilitate accurate manufacturing of the harness. Once the harness has been created, test data can be delivered directly from Harness Builder for E3.series to all major harness testers.

Harness Builder for E3.series provides intelligent high-accuracy data for manufacturing.

Paul Harvell, Product Director for E3.series notes, “Zuken’s partnership with ProjectionWorks enhances our users’ experience beyond the design. ProjectionWorks’ state of the art assembly projection technology, combined with Harness Builder for E3.series, provides an optimal design, assembly and test solution for the wire and cable harness manufacturing market.”

Zuken’s new integration with Delta Sigma Company will be available to customers in North America with the release of Harness Builder for E3.series 2019 in June of this year. The integration will be presented at the following upcoming events:

About Delta-Sigma Company
Delta Sigma Company (DSC) specializes in designing and building custom systems used to automate precision manufacturing and complex assembly tasks. Initially focused on custom low observable test equipment, DSC has expanded our capabilities to include engineer-to-order factory automation systems, robotics, and cutting-edge augmented reality systems.

In 2005, we began developing 3D optical projection technologies, which later grew into our patented ProjectionWorks product line in 2009. Delta Sigma now offers a family of augmented reality products designed to project visual work instructions in true size and color directly onto any vehicle, object, or surface, regardless of shape or size. This enables manufacturers to reduce time on task and eliminate errors in manufacturing and complex assembly processes. ProjectionWorks can be applied to the assembly, painting, and wire harness and cable assembly.
