In 2021, almost all business sectors have felt the pressure from supply chain issues due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The electronics industry was one of the hardest hit during these uncertain times, and it is still in the process of recovery. The ongoing semiconductor chip shortage is likely going to continue this year and could extend beyond 2022. While this electronics component shortage is leading to massive disruptions in the automotive sector, the deficit has generated supply chain ...
Engineering drawings are the medium through which engineers communicate the design requirements of an engineered product or component. Often termed as mechanical drawings, manufacturing blueprints, or dimensional prints, engineering drawings accurately and clearly capture all the geometric features of the components or products illustrated in the drawing. A clear and technically accurate drawing will ultimately allow the manufacturer or fabricator to produce the component without any errors.
Wire crimping is an essential step in the manufacturing of cable assemblies. Crimping creates strong joints and can be used with wires of any cross-sections. A well-executed crimp is gastight, so you can prevent oxygen and moisture from oxidizing the metal and creating corrosion. Read on to learn more about the importance of a quality crimp, as well as how this step can affect end products.
Flex and ribbon cables are replacing round cables in various assemblies thanks to higher performance, improved efficiency, and a more extensive range of applications. Here's how to choose the right type for your cable assemblies.

In cable assemblies, the devil is often in the details — one of which is choosing the right termination for your wires.
Vibration, temperature, and moisture can all impact the reliability and performance of the connections. Temperature fluctuations can cause the materials to expand and contract at different rates, affecting the connectivity between contact surfaces. Shock and vibration can cause connections to become loose, while moisture can increase the rate of oxidation, reducing ...
In today's digital environment, our lives are inseparable from cables. But choosing the right cable to use in various applications can be confusing.
Cables are the unsung hero in electronic engineering. Regardless of product type or application, they are an essential component for delivering power and transferring data.
Your team spent endless hours designing and engineering a custom cable assembly. You can not afford to use sub-optimal off-the-shelf cable assemblies that may result in additional costs, poor performance, safety issues, equipment damage, recalls and revenue loss, lawsuits, and reputation damage.
