Teamwork Helps Sumitomo Streamline Production to Improve Its Small Part Handling Manufacturing


Butt splices aren’t the easiest things in the world to handle. The small, circular component designed to join two ends, or butts, of two objects together without overlapping, have been known to slip through fingers when inserting a wire connector while trying to crimp it.

The process of manufacturing butt splices can be challenging as well. That’s why Sumitomo turned to Smart Engineering Systems, Becker Engineering, Clayton Controls and Dorner Mfg., to streamline and modernize the manufacturing process and achieve greater accuracy in the positioning of splices during production from +/-.02” to +/-.002”.
