Increased investment in cable assembly facility wins Harwin new business in space and avionics sector
Advanced machinery and capabilities deliver superior quality; specialist in prototype and early builds; no MOQ
Harwin has announced that increased investment in its Salem, New Hampshire cable assembly facility is winning new business in the demanding and highly specialized space and avionics sector. At its USA site, Harwin’s cabling capabilities include building to customer datasheet, prototyping, and electrical and mechanical testing of both cable and wire harnesses and coaxial cable assemblies.
Over the past twelve months, increased investment in equipment plus intensive additional staff development and training, has led to successful fulfilment of orders from a number of high-tech customers with exceptional quality requirements.
Low Volume Orders
Prototypes and small builds for early stage projects with the additional advantage of no MOQ are a Harwin speciality, proving particularly attractive to space and avionics customers. Harwin already boasts a strong presence in these markets through its world-class Hi-Rel connector ranges. In particular, the award-winning 1.25mm pitch Gecko interconnect range, which has been specified on multiple programmes from satellites and CubeSats, to mission- and safety-critical aircraft control systems.
IPC 620 Standard Cabling
Additional investment at Salem has resulted in an expanded QA Department, additional training – all of the cable assembly facility’s operators are trained to IPC 620 crimping standards – and upgrading of warehouse management systems. Additional machinery purchased includes extra electrical testing stations, post-potting ovens, and the very latest wire cutting and stripping machinery.
