Join the 400 users in 30 countries who use the database of over 100,000 TE products to produce high-quality wiring harness assembly drawings and full manufacturing documentation. From concept to reality, HarnWare software gives you the power to deliver complete harness solutions.
Introduction to TE's Harnware computer aided electrical wiring design software for high-performance wiring harness systems. PART 1.
HarnWare software is a sealed system design tool which is compatible with Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Visio. The drag and drop drawing interface means designers can quickly and easily create high-quality drawings as well as all the documentation needed for production. The ability to export data in a variety of formats allows information to be transferred into other computer systems.
Rapidly Introduce the Harness into Production
Efficient production of a harnesses depends on clear and reliable drawings. All the information needed to manufacture the harness is contained in the HarnWare harness design. Materials and equipment listings as well as recommended preparation and assembly instructions for the parts contained in the harness can be output from the HarnWare software system enabling a production engineer to rapidly introduce the harness into production.
Generate to-scale 3D models of components and harnesses and to-scale Visio drawings, including harness lay-up boards, with our HarnVis 3D harness design visualization system. Click on a part to access additional information about that part. Export these virtual prototypes from the HarnVis system in the form of IGES files for use in other CAD systems.
We offer a number of training courses to ensure you will get the most out of our HarnWare design software. Customer-specific tailored training sessions can be arranged on request. These courses can be delivered at TE sites, customers' sites or via technology (Micorsoft Lync).
One of our most popular courses is our 3-day training session held at our Swindon (UK) site. Our professional and skilled trainers will ensure you are able to use the software to its maximum capability. In these interactive sessions, delegates use all the features and functions of HarnWare Software to design an example harness incorporating a variety of components and gain an understanding of how to use the system.
Our harness assembly training courses with modules devoted to components used in each step in the process, including laying wires, shrinking tubing and moulded parts, adapter and connector termination will equip you with the knowledge to prepare and handle components correctly for rapid manufacture of your harness.
Codes of Practice
Correct preparation of the components is key when assembling your harness. Our Codes of Practice provide guidance for all the TE components to enable you to assembly your harness rapidly and correctly.
