Connecting: rmw’s manufacturing portfolio

Simple stranded wires, cable systems, complex electromechanical sub-assemblies and everything in between – rmw Kabelsysteme GmbH will assemble any desired configuration for you both reliably and with precision.

Cable processing: cutting, soldering, crimping and laser stripping

With the reassurance of vast experience, rmw Kabelsysteme GmbH will create high-quality products out of first-class raw cable material and with the most modern technology. In this way, rmw works with you to realise exactly the cable configurations you need for your project.

Cable cutting

From a few millimetres to several hundred metres, up to 16 mm in diameter and beyond – all types of cables and shielding are processed and customised by rmw to meet the demands of your project. rmw's machinery is ideally equipped for this, including modern semi-automatic cutting and stripping machines as well as high-precision laser technology for sheath processing.

Soldering

Your soldered connections are completed at rmw according to the specifications of the IPC – in consistently high quality, for which rmw’s employees are trained at least once a year. In addition to the usual connectors, electrostatically sensitive components can be processed; ESD soldering stations are available for this purpose.

Crimping

Detailed view of crimping on machine tools

Reliable crimp connections are made at rmw by means of manual or mechanical tools, depending on the application. Thus, a wide range of possible contacts can be achieved.

  • Crimping of diameters from 0.05 mm²
    • up to 4 mm² (semi-automatic press)
    • up to 10 mm² (manual crimper)
    • up to 70 mm² (pneumatic press)
  • Systematic quality monitoring via micrographs and pull-off tests
  • Regular staff training

Laser-based stripping

High-precision stripping of e.g., twisted shielded cables is carried out at rmw using CO2 lasers from Schleuniger or UV lasers from Laselec (SYLADE 7).

  • Conductor cross-sections from 1/1000 to 16 mm² can be processed and enable a wide range of applications.
  • Non-contact processing guarantees highest processing quality
  • Stripping with UV laser complies with aerospace standard EN 2812

Cable marking

Depending on the application requirements, rmw uses various modern technologies to mark cables and wires for you:

Inkjet printing

Cable printing: black ink-jet printing on cable sheathing.

Ink-jet printing in black or white on the cable sheath to achieve traceability and to print customer-specific information

Cable marking by UV laser

Employee aerospace cable marking

UV laser-based permanent marking of demanding aerospace cables including automated length cutting.

Testing technology for your safety

For your safety, rmw offers you 100% electrical and visual testing of all products in the high and low voltage range. For the adaptation of assembled cables, special testing equipment is built to ensure that the products function faultlessly.

The testing services of rmw include:

  • Connection, short-circuit, insulation and dielectric strength tests
  • Four-pole measurements
  • Protective conductor tests
  • Functional tests and component tests
  • Customer-specific tests by arrangement

Individual test equipment

For customer-specific sub-assemblies and for 100% safety, rmw manufactures the appropriate test adapters directly in-house.
