Electronic quality monitoring systems have arrived in the area of industrial production engineering. The SL starlite crimp force monitoring system measures and monitors the crimping process during production of cable harness. Apart from its reliability, the system is also user friendly owing to its self-explanatory operator interface. The single or double channel crimp quality unit is designed especially for cutting machines and achieve a high performance to cost ratio.


The SL starlite system is excellently suited for all fields of application requiring the monitoring of crimp or press forces. The system offers a wide range of triggering methods such as proximity, encoder and even automatic triggering by the force itself. A wide range of force sensors and adaption plates (either on the ram or base-plate) are already available. The system can be used with every crimping machine, and thus protect your investment also for the future.

Monitoring functions

Individual crimping process is monitored for the following defects:

  • Missing strands
  • Incorrect crimp height
  • Incorrect wire gauge
  • High/low insulation
  • Wire not completely in the wire crimp
  • Strands outside of terminal
  • Short insulation
  • And many more

Economically designed

The system‘s simplicity in handling is secured by state-of-the-art rotary encoder „jog shuttle“. All parameters and command inputs are set effortlessly via a simple dial.
