MANUFACTURING

Factory Operations

Buse’s 55,000 square feet manufacturing facility is organized into ten separate, highly integrated production cells. Each wire department cell shares a similar configuration, with bench top crimping equipment, shrink tube cutting equipment, ESD workstations, testing and measuring devices, and maneuverable, high intensity task lighting.

Each department’s activities are coordinated using an ERP scheduling software specifically designed for the wire harness manufacturing industry. This software serves as the central operating system for Buse Industries, aligning all aspects of production and ensuring efficient labor and material management.

Buse has over 100 semi-automated and automated wire cutting, stripping and crimping machines. Through extensive investment in applicators and agreements with Molex, TE Connectivity and other manufacturers, hand crimping operations at the facility have been eliminated almost entirely.

The printed circuit board cell at Buse supports surface mount and through-hole assemblies, employing lead-free or leaded process as required. The PCB cell is comprised of several soldering stations, surface mount pick-and-place machines, and an 8-zone reflow oven.
