IDC Machine

IDC technology

IDC (insulation displacement connection) machine provides time- and cost-effective alternative to terminal crimping and soldering.

IDC sample

Solid or stranded wires are inserted into the connection space unstripped and pressed with much lower forces than crimping requires. IDC termination facilitates the rapid assembly of high- density wiring harnesses. Obtained connectors withstand harsh environment (e.g. from -40 to + 125 C0 temperature range, high humidity, mechanical stresses).
SM Contact designs, produces and services IDC equipment with the object in mind of improving customers’ productivity via optimum production rationalization.

Application

IDC connectors can be found in numerous applications, including domestic appliances, automotive safety systems, computers, ATMs, irrigation equipment, motors, pumps, security systems, solar energy, solid-state lighting and telecom gear.
