Useful tips from Splice Crimping Seminar: splice crimping vs. terminals
What are the main differences between splice crimping and standard terminals?
- Splice is a connection between two or more components of any type: wire, tab, PCB, coil, sensor, diode, etc.
- Each splice connection is designed individually according to the shape, material, production process of a Customer, environment of final product processing, etc.
- Splice connection is up to 20% cheaper than standard terminal connection.
- Splice connection provides easy tooling accessibility for manual and automatic processing. There are enough place between tooling parts to place components.
- Splice crimping with connection qualification guarantees good connection quality.
- Standard connection is a connection between wire and terminal ONLY.
- Standard terminal is to be chosen from the catalogue. In case of special Customer’s requirements, customized stamping tool must be manufactured.
- Standard terminal connection is up to 20% more expensive than splice connection.
Standard terminals are characterized by difficult tooling accessibility both for manual and automatic processing.
- Standard terminals can cause connection defects if they are not adapted to the component dimensions: burrs that can damage connection and lead to short circuit; wire damage and small contact surface increases resistance, makes electricity go along the crimp and results in heating.
