|20080196246||Bundle Cable Connector Assembly, Components, Tooling and Manufacturing Method - A method for assembling a bundle cable connector assembly that eliminates bird caging, wire threads extruding through a connector pin, loose wire threads, dielectric shield shrinking, etc. The method includes stripping the wire to create a birdcage preventative zone and an exposed tip with a crimping zone therebetween, and tinning the exposed wire at the birdcage preventative zone and the tip. The method then includes inserting the wire into a connector pin, and crimping the pin to the wire at the crimping zone using heat so that the tinning solder melts. The method then includes mounting the pin to a connector body and mounting a wire-locking device to the connector body to lock the pin to the connector body.||08-21-2008|
