I used M4 ring connectors removed the casing, soldered all the wiring and then used heat shrink. I connected the 110V input at R and S, grounding into the nearby grounding point in the case.
I connected the cable shielding to the second grounding point in the case. The cable ground to the #9 ground and the remaining 3 wires to U V W.
At the spindle, the #9 cable ground is connected to Pin 4. Pin 4 is grounded to the spindle case.
YMMV: There are some reports of pin 4 not being grounded to the spindle case, mine was, so not a problem but this is something you need to sort out. Also if the spindle does not rotate in the correct direction, then swap any of the two UVW wires.
As you can see in this image, the correct crimping tool has two elements that crimp, the first is to crimp the stranded wire and the second is for the strain relief.
In a stranded wire that is connected to a fixed point with no strain relief and that is subjected to movement, individual strands have a tendency to break, affecting the reliability and safety of the connections.
Your use of heat shrink tube is not really a replacement for a strain relief because it does not clamp the wire to a fixed point.
Also there are a number of reasons why crimping leads to a more reliable connection and why soldering can lead to problems.
One is that when solder is applied with heat, it tends to creep in varying amounts along the individual strands of the wire and the area of the wire affected by the solder loses its flexibility. When such cables are subjected to movement, individual strands break.
Effective crimp connections deform the metal of the connector past its yield point so that the compressed wire causes tension in the surrounding connector, and these forces counter each other to create a high degree of static friction which holds the cable in place. Due to the elastic nature of the metal in crimped connections, they are highly resistant to vibration and thermal shock.
A well-engineered and well-executed crimp is designed to be gas-tight, which prevents oxygen and moisture from reaching the metals (which are often different metals) and causing corrosion.
Because no alloy is used (as in solder) the joint is mechanically stronger.
Also the wire you used as you showed with the www link is size AWG 14 (2.08 mm²) but the ring connectors you bought are for AWG 22 - AWG 16 wire (1.31 mm²), which means you bought the wrong size connectors, they are too small for the wire. The correct ring connector color would have been blue, not red.
The colors according to DIN 46245 are:
Red for wire cross-section area from 0.5 to 1 mm²
Blue for wire cross-section area from 1.5 to 2.5 mm²
Yellow für wire cross-section area from 4 to 6 mm²
