Finding standard cable designs has never been easier with facilities producing generic cable designs en masse. While these mass produced off the shelf cables can meet certain needs, they also do not allow for much experimentation and will fall short in more complex applications. Many industries will require more specialized cable assemblies to fit into new technologies.
Custom cable assemblies can be built with superior performance and design when compared to generic models. Custom cable assemblies, manufactured as per the application demands, ensure reliability, providing peace of mind and better returns on investment. Here are five benefits of custom cable assembly.
Mass produced cables, wires and connectors will often suffer from cost restraints which can negatively impact the quality and longevity. For cable manufacturers, producing only the highest quality cables is not viable because it jacks up the prices and will likely force customers to look for cheaper options.
A custom cable assembly allows you to oversee the quality standards in place, allowing you to create products that comply with regulatory standards. For instance, if your application requires cables to withstand specific temperatures and operate in a chemically-exposed environment, your custom cable manufacturer can test the cables for these parameters before final assembly.
Custom cables are designed with a specific application in mind, so you know you’ll be getting exactly what you need. In situations where cables need to be color-coded or labeled, it might be impossible to find standard cables that fit your exact needs. Custom cables easily allow these basic customization options. Cable length is also important in most projects, and our cables can be cut to the exact length that is required.
With custom cables, custom cable manufacturers can provide you with bulk orders for large projects requiring many cables. You can also be more precise with your order so you don’t end up with too many cables that go to waste or end up in a situation where you don’t have enough cables.
The better and more specific the materials, the better the end result will be. Even in cases where a standard cable could possibly work, you may be making a compromise where a custom cable could be designed to fit your needs perfectly. Cable shielding and jacketing material are also crucial for protecting cables and increasing their longevity and effectiveness. Controlling every aspect of the material used in a custom cable is necessary for critical applications such as those found in the medical industry. In these situations, you can’t afford to have cables fail prematurely and custom cables will help avoid that.
