The company’s electrical grounding system is said to reduce the need for several grounding assemblies to one. In a single step, multiple wiring harnesses are attached to one centrally located grounding base with virtually no limit on the number of terminals that can be attached. A unique ring terminal design provides for the installation of terminals that are stacked onto the grounding bolt and automatically lock into place, preventing rotation and ensuring the integrity of the pre-assembled harnesses while optimizing the electrical and mechanical interfaces. According to the company, the manual assembly process requires no tools and has no defined assembly sequence. There is one ring design and one base design so all parts are identical except in the crimp area, which provides for one of four different crimp sizes: 1.0 mm to 2.0 mm, 2.0 mm to 4.0 mm, 4.0 mm to 6.0 mm, or 6.0 mm to 10.0 mm. The uniform design is said to provide highly efficient parts production using high-speed stamping processes to significantly improve manufacturing costs. Delphi Corporation
