In my line of work, I have the privilege of visiting many wiring harness shops that produce wiring harnesses for many different industries. One of the common issues I’ve noticed when visiting shops that use crimp force monitors (CFMs) is that the CFMs are usually turned off, regardless of the brand, because engineers and operators are not using them properly. While I hope this does not apply to your specific situation, it may be worth paying an unexpected visit to your crimping work areas to look for indications of whether the CFMs are being used regularly. Chances are they are not. Unless of course it’s audit time, then you can be sure all the CFMs will be on!
