Title: WIRE HARNESS MANUFACTURING METHOD
Abstract:
The purpose of the present invention is to provide a technique for manufacturing a wire harness by automatically binding an electric wire group without using an assembly drawing board. The wire harness is manufactured as follows. An electric wire group extending from each connector is drawn through a hand. A hand of a gripping robot is moved upward of said hand so as to grip together electric wire groups that have been brought close. Then, portions of the electric wire groups closer to the connector side than the hands are bundled by a bundling robot.
