The standard offering of insulation materials include polyvinylchloride (PVC), Fluorinated ethylene-propylene (FEP), Tefzel® ethylene tetrafluoroethylene, and thermoplastic elastomer (PTPE). Below is a short description of these common materials. PVC: is most commonly available with a temperature range of -10 C and 105 C, it is a relatively inexpensive compound that can be made oil and UV resistant as well as flame retardant. However, the dielectric properties of PVC vary between different types of PVC. FEP: is perfect for high temperature applications, [...]
The process of sourcing a custom military cable does not have to be a laborious process. If you need to combine a number of cables into one cable for easier installation or require custom print legend or color match jacket, you are an excellent candidate to use a custom military cable. Creating a custom cable allows the designer to have control over conductor counts, AWG sizes, color codes, tolerances, insulation and jacket materials, shielding and print legends. Special designs also [...]
The technology for wire and cable products used in the Aerospace Wire and Cable market has been stagnant for many years. With the introduction of NXGN200™ from Marmon Aerospace and Defense that is about to change. NXGN200 is a High Performance, Lightweight and Normal weight, Seamless, Wire with Temperature Rating: -65⁰C to 150⁰C (Tin Coated), 200⁰C (Silver or Nickel Coated). It is the equivalent of a seamless wire that is actually extruded. This new technology offers more flexibility at a lower cost. The NXGN200 [...]
High-mix production is a way of life at most harness assembly shops. Even operations that only serve a few high-volume customers still have to deal with product variation that challenges efficient operations. As product mix increases, you increase the instances for inefficiency and production errors. Fortunately, with good shop-floor organization, wise technology choices, and a disciplined adherence to standard work, harness assemblers can handle high-mix production without compromising the bottom line. One of the areas where a wire harness manufacturer [...]
