Circular connector four-core wires are made with winding in the cable and the wires of different colors are not distributed fixedly within the cables. The exact position of the four wires inside the cable cannot be determined due to the cables are stripped. In addition, the core wire is flexible, and it is easy to bend in any direction due to external force interference. Because of the above two factors, it is difficult for this process to be fully automated. The purpose of this work is to use the finite element analysis software to simulate the flexibility of the core wire in the four-core cable and design a Separate module that only uses a single-axis-robot and a stepper motor. The core wires wound within the cable are separated by the designed Separate module, which facilitates the subsequent welding process and improves the production efficiency, and reduces labor costs.
