It makes a lot of sense to buy a cable that fits a project’s needs perfectly rather than run several cables that almost do what is needed, says FS Cables. Some of the cables that customers need are composites using a variety of cables within a single outer jacket, combining coaxial cables with power and signal cables to run up camera masts, for example, or multi-core versions of a single core cable that have very precise electrical characteristics for monitoring. Others need cables combining different elements, for example nylon tubes for pneumatic equipment alongside multiple conductors and specialist grade sheaths to protect against environmental challenges and chemicals.
At Southern Manufacturing 2020, the company invites customers to talk through likely order quantities and production times, identifying any potential pitfalls and discuss where savings can be made. Up to one year’s requirement can be ordered to be held in stock for next-day delivery. “You specify, we supply” says the company, with quantities, in some cases, as low as 100m.
Customers with a regular requirement for a particular cable may benefit from using the call-off order service. Contracts can be up to 12 months and fix costs. Cable called off will normally be invoiced when delivered, spreading the cost over the length of the agreement. In most cases, the entire order will be manufactured in one go and held in stock for next working day delivery.
