How to Bundle Rail Vehicle Cables in Record Time and without Wasting Material

This article first appeared in the Railway-News magazine, Issue 2 2024.

The millions of cable ties used every year in the manufacture of rail vehicles is a testament to their indispensable role.

But when you consider that it takes more than 10 seconds to apply a cable tie by hand, this is a significant amount of time for what is essentially a straightforward process. This begs the question: Is there a more efficient method for large-scale industrial use? Read on to discover a remarkably fast solution that can revolutionise this aspect of rail vehicle wire harness production.

HellermannTyton’s ATS Flex bundling system is a real game-changer in mass processing of cable ties in wire harness production. Not only does it repeatedly complete a bundling cycle in a mere second, it also ensures consistent tying force and eliminates the risk of sharp edges that could potentially injure workers or damage wire insulation during assembly.

Looping, Threading, Tensioning and Cutting at the Touch of a Button

The ATS flex distinguishes itself through its operational simplicity – looping, threading, tensioning and cutting are all executed at the touch of a button. Unlike a conventional cable tie, the ATS strap and locking head are fed separately from two different dispenser reels. This innovative approach allows the tool to automatically feed the strap through the locking head and cut it precisely, ensuring no material wastage.

A key feature of the tool system is its mechanical diameter detection, which is critical to maintaining a secure fastener in the vibration-intensive environment of rail vehicles. The correct jaw size and speed are automatically determined during the set-up phase.
