Wireline in Oil & Gas Industries

Posted June 01, 2021

In oil and gas exploration, the term wireline broadly defines industry-specific methods, processes, and technologies that lower cables and wires into a wellbore. Wirelines are strong, thin lengths of wire or braided cable mounted on a powered reel. Typical wireline applications affix “logging tools” or instruments to a cable rigged to drilling platforms or trucks that, once attached, is lowered by the cable into oil well holes or natural gas reservoirs to perform diagnostics or to gather and ...

Wire Harness Assembly 101

Posted January 27, 2021

A wire harness assembly groups wires, cables, connectors, and other components into an organized electronic or electrical wiring system designed to convey information, transmit sensor signals and/or electrical power. From laptops to automobiles, such assemblies connect electrical components and electronic devices that supply power and send signals for any given system to operate. Thus, the wire harness assembly of any system is necessary to power that system.
