If the parts needed are difficult to acquire, the lead time for your cable assembly is going to increase. We pride ourselves on the ability to produce high quality assemblies with fast turnaround times. For this reason, our specialist team can offer help and advice by suggesting parts that are more easily accessible. This ensures you get a high-quality product.
Are the connectors easy to assemble?
Although our team of IPC trained and certified assemblers work incredibly efficiently to high standards, if an assembly is difficult to build, both the time and labour costs can increase. Components and parts are often the focus for costs. However, the cost of labour can often be a factor that will increase the overall cost. Keep this in mind when submitting your drawings with us through our RFQ page.
Will your cable assembly be massed produced?
If you’re designing assemblies for the U.K but overtime may be distributed across the globe, ensure that all the parts within your assembly are available worldwide. If not, it may become increasingly expensive to produce the cable assembly in different areas of the world.
As specialists within this one area, our team are on hand to help from the early stages of the design process. This ensures that your final cable assembly will be easily accessible and available for wherever you may need it. This may seem clear to some; however, it is important to keep this in mind at the start of your assembly process.
The standards conformed to – your geographical requirements
Additionally, it is important to understand that requirements in which your assembly needs to adhere to. Differing locations across the world will have different regulations, for example any product going to the USA must use UL Approved components.
If you are new to cable assembly, this can be difficult to understand and research due to it being technical knowledge by default. To avoid this, ensure you have outlined your location with our experts, and they will advise if any specific parts need to be used throughout the assembly.
Is the environment harsh – do you need a robust cable assembly or something for extreme weather conditions?
Finally, the environment in which your cable assembly will be in needs to be given thought. Will it be in harsh conditions such as extremely high or low temperatures. Does it require to be more robust than a standard assembly due to the nature of product it will be in? No two cable assemblies are the same. The more detail and information you can give us, the more bespoke we can make your order. This will mean greater longevity and the quality of which it performs at will be much higher.
