CRIMPING TERMINALS - The importance of using the right tool
Pre-insulated terminals and splices are pre-insulated RBY terminals and splices designed specifically to answer the need for inexpensive, insulated electrical terminations. The quality, ease of installation and inherent simplicity make them candidates for almost all commercial applications. PLASTI-GRIP is available in ring, spade, flanged, spaded, and slotted tongue terminals, as well as parallel and butt splices.
These terminals and splices are well accepted in all markets and feature easy installation with TE tooling, crimp-performance guaranteed. The insulation provides good dielectric strength and supports the wire insulation so that no bare wire is exposed.
Funneled wire entry on the terminal prevents turned-back wire strands and permits rapid wire insertion during high speed production. Serrations in the crimp barrel provide maximum contact and tensile strength after crimping. The “C” crimp is specially designed by TE for a long-lasting crimp.
Application tooling has been developed to ensure uniform high-quality terminations. Tools and pre-insulated ring terminals have been designed together to promote ease and speed of application while providing precise crimping pressure for every wire size. PLASTI-GRIP is available in ring, spade, flanged, spaded, and slotted tongue terminals, as well as parallel and butt splices.
Applications include HVAC, instruments/controls, lighting, switchgear, power supplies, panel boxes, transportation, motors, and many more.
The development of international trade, supply chains and transport increases the turnover of container pin pre-insulated terminals. Changes in the port environment and the functions of terminals have created a demand for logistics solutions and value-added services. On the other hand, these changes have also influenced the port-city interface.
The purpose of this paper is to present the activity of container terminals and examine how the growing turnover of container units has affected the port cities. The interaction between the latter and port terminals has been discussed. The research is based on the terminals located in Polish port cities of Gdynia and Gdańsk, which play a leading role in the development of the economy in the region.
The research has shown that maritime networks have an ever-growing influence on ports and port – city relationships. On the one hand, the growth of maritime logistic services has a positive influence on the labor market and transport infrastructure, which is also used by the inhabitants. On the other hand, the increase in container cargo volume has a negative impact on urban areas through a number of negative externalities (congestion, noise, pollutant emissions, etc.). This creates a conflict in which the city has to bear the external effects of the port operations. In this context, solutions incorporating the sustainable development of both port and urban areas are essential.
With the increasing container cargo throughput and the arising of port congestion, container ports start to choose the investment expansion strategy to increase the port efficiency and then to figure out the problem of port congestion. To analyze this strategy, we formulate a non-cooperative game model for a two-terminals-one-port system, and derive the optimal equilibrium outcomes of the investment expansion strategy and investment constant strategy. In the game, we find that when the investment parameter of expansion strategy and impact of handling efficiency on demand changes, both pure-strategy Nash equilibrium and mixed-strategy Nash equilibrium exist, and two pre-insulated blade terminals are more likely to choose the investment expansion strategy in most cases. Numerical simulation is applied to explore the equilibrium strategy under different circumstance.
Owing to a rapid growth in world trade and a large increase in the flow of containerized goods, sea container Terminals play a vital role in globe-spanning supply chains. Container terminals should be able to handle large ships, with large call sizes within the shortest time possible, and at competitive rates. In response, terminal operators, shipping lines and port authorities are investing in new technologies to improve container handling and operational efficiency. Container terminals face challenging research problems that have received much attention from the academic community. The focus of this article is on highlighting recent developments in container terminals, which can be categorized into two areas: (i) innovative container terminal technologies and (ii) new OR directions and models for existing research areas. By choosing this focus, we complement existing reviews on container terminal operations.
Micro-precision Glass Insulated Terminals (referred to as glass terminals) are the core components used in precision electronic equipment and are often used for electrical connections between modules. As a glass terminal, its quality has a great influence on the performance of precision electronic equipment. Due to the limitations of materials and production processes, some of the pre-insulated hook terminals produced have defects, such as missing blocks, pores and cracks. At present, most of the defect detection of glass terminals is done by manual inspection, and rapid detection easily causes eye fatigue, so it is difficult to ensure product quality and production efficiency. The traditional defect detection technology is difficult to effectively detect the very different defects of the glass terminal. Therefore, this paper proposes to use deep learning technology to detect missing blocks. First, preprocess the sample pictures of the missing block defects of the glass terminal, and then train the improved Faster Region-CNN deep learning network for defect detection. According to the test results, the accuracy of the algorithm in detecting missing defects in the glass terminal is as high as 93.52%.
