Save time – outsource cable, says Nicab

In-house cable assembly is time consuming, with time required to find and train staff, raise orders for individual connectors, contacts, cable etc and to purchase, raise and chase orders, booking and administration of invoices and payments. Nicab says outsourcing offers a single order, one delivery date and one invoice.

The vast range of interconnection products also means lots of tools are needed as the OEM needs to decide on hand or automated tooling, then budget for that choice. Outsourcing eliminates tooling costs, says Nicab, because specialist cable assembly companies invest in tooling for efficient production.

Sub-contracting out some orders to a trusted supplier means the OEM reduces pressure on its own production department, which is helpful when either an urgent order arrives when the workshop is running at capacity.

Specialist cable assembly sub-contractors research the best manufacturing techniques to ensure products are assembled correctly, which means OEMs can therefore be sure their cables are manufactured to a high standard.

The final benefit is at the testing stage. Cable assembly companies are always looking for ways to enhance testing processes, including investment in specialist equipment that can test against criteria including crosses, shorts, resistance, and impedance. Crimp testing using force gauges ensures crimps remain in place and provide good connections.
