We have been very satisfied with our purchase of the Mecmesin MultiTest 1-x, it has become an essential part of our quality control system and allows us to calibrate our tooling and ensure our product is as reliable as possible in the severe environment of motorsport.

Designer and manufacturer of motorsport electrical wiring systems, Cyprium Motorsports has chosen a Mecmesin MultiTest 1-x force testing system to perform quality control assessments on electrical harness terminals.

Cyprium design and produce customised wiring harness systems for sports cars, including Formula 1, Le Mans Prototype, Grand Touring and rally cars.

The company required a fast and accurate force testing solution to ensure wires connected to the electrical harness terminals were securely crimped together.

Mecmesin worked closely with Cyprium to develop a solution, comprising a MultiTest 1-x console-controlled test system, fitted with a 1000N loadcell and specialised fixtures for testing crimps. The MultiTest 1-x is used to perform pull tests at a controlled speed on the electrical harness terminals, to determine that the load at which they fail is above a recognised value. Tests are performed to a guide supplied by Mecmesin conforming to industry standard BS 5G 178: Part 2. To facilitate quick testing and ease-of-use the MultiTest 1-x has been set up with stored programmes to test specific wire sizes and give an immediate pass/fail message to the operator. These automated test procedures and calculations reduce test times, leading to considerable costs savings both in man hours and rework.

Nigel Barber, Senior Engineer at Cyprium said "We have been very satisfied with our purchase of the Mecmesin MultiTest 1-x, it has become an essential part of our quality control system and allows us to calibrate our tooling and ensure our product is as reliable as possible in the severe environment of motorsport."
