Whether your project is one piece, ten pieces, ten thousand pieces, or grows through all of those stages; it can be manufactured at our Houston, TX production facility. Application-specific design assistance and materials scheduling is available. We can also assist you with materials procurement for your assemblies and auxiliary components so that “safety stock” is always available for long-term production items.
Cable Cutting and Stripping
In addition to our quality stock and custom cable assemblies, we also provide cable and wire cutting and stripping services to your specifications. We can work with customer-supplied material or furnish processed cable directly (minimums may apply). We will cut and strip lengths from 2 inches to 1000 feet of most cables up to .410 inch in jacket diameter. Whether you are using RG-178/U or RG-8/U, we will process it quickly and accurately.
Conductor size range for automated cutting and stripping is up to 4 AWG stranded and 10 AWG for solid copper. This encompasses the majority of coaxial cables now on the market.
Whether you require a simple single step strip or more than nine steps to meet your specifications, we will deliver precision stripping of one or both ends of your cable. Our digital equipment ensures that every cutting operation is consistent and accurate with a tolerance of ± .015 inches [.381mm], whether we deliver fifty or fifty thousand pieces.
If you do not find your desired cable assembly in our regularly stocked catalog items, we will build custom assemblies to fit your specific needs:
- Any connector
- To any of our quality cable or cable of your choice
- To any length
Our production facility does much more than build cables for our standard product line and OEM customers; we also do Specialized Kitting, Material Trace-ability (lot control and certs), Scheduled Releases, Private Labeling, Product Marking, and Cable Prep.
Pre-kitted shipments of assemblies and components can save you both time and money. As a value-added service, we will build and package kitted items to your specification, providing all components, using customer supplied items, or any combination thereof. For field installations, kits can be provided with a combination of completed assemblies, cut and stripped cable and connectors ready for assembly.
Our QC Department offers a variety of tests for connectors and cable assemblies as value-added services. Please contact us with your testing specifications and we will provide a quotation for services.
All assemblies are 100% tested electrically for continuity as standard procedure. For a nominal additional charge, measurements such as VSWR and Insertion Loss can be performed on 75 ohm BNC and F and 50 ohm BNC, N, SMA, TNC, 2.92, 3.5 and 7-16 DIN connector, adapter, attenuator, termination load and
cable assembly interfaces. The testing range is 50 MHz to 40 GHz. Chart data is supplied for each test.
Hi-Pot testing to 2,500 volts per MIL-STD-202 M301 requirements is available for connectors, adapters, and cable assemblies.
Source Inspection Surcharge
A surcharge is placed upon all orders requiring source inspection (pending purchase order review). Inspection documents will be shipped with your order unless otherwise specified.
State-of-the-art equipment provides HST w/private labeling and custom marking with company name, part numbers, or anything within the machinery abilities. This is done in a variety of colors for quick identification.
These cable assemblies serve the aerospace, military, automotive, and commercial market places from first article to production quantities. Their minimum order is one piece.
So that you can take advantage of J-I-T- inventory management, we can schedule delivery of connectors, cable assemblies, or kits to minimize your inventory holding times and warehousing space. Whenever possible, safety stock is maintained at our facility so we can respond quickly should you need to call your orders forward.
