The Importance of EMI Shielding In Cable Assemblies
Insulation protects a cable from mechanical abrasion and environmental moisture and spills. However, it offers no protection against electronic noise such as electromagnetic interference (EMI). Shielding is needed to guard the conductor against the effects of EMI.
Key Mechanical Tests for Custom Cables
As with all products, many electric cable assemblies are made to certain specifications and are designed for particular tasks.
In many industrial and commercial applications cables are exposed to constant movement during their operation. Understanding exactly what will be required from a cable during it's lifespan enables designers and system builders to build a long lasting cable.
3 Ways A Contract Manufacturer Can Benefit Your Business
Whether you’re new to electronic manufacturing or are looking to scale up production of your current product line, contract manufacturing (CM) is an option you may well have considered, and for good reason. Outsourcing your manufacturing processes, or even your R&D process, to a quality CM can benefit your business significantly.
Value-Added Services in Electronic Manufacturing
The OEM hi-tech/electronics industry is undergoing dramatic change. Pricing pressures, ever-evolving new technologies and increasing global competitions are reshaping the way these companies operate. Electronic component manufacturers, being a key ally to the OEM’s, are transforming themselves to react to the changing electronics/IT landscape.
Electrical Discharge Machining & Ultrasonic Welding in Contract Manufacturing
Electrical discharge machining (EDM), the application of the electrical discharges under a controlled mechanism to remove metal, has long been a favorite for high accuracy machining applications where conventional metal removal is difficult or impossible.
Laser Cutting Applications in Precision Machining
Laser cutting is a high-tech machine that is used to precise-cut both metal and non-metal materials. It has gained tremendous popularity in both consumer electronics and industrial sectors.
Important Factors to Consider When Designing A Custom Cable Assembly
It’s often said that a system is only as good as its weakest component. Likewise, a high-quality cable assembly is only as good as its weakest components. Following is a list of critical factors to consider as you design a custom cable assembly.
Contract Manufacturing For Medical Devices
While provisions of electronic manufacturing services may vary from one manufacturer to another and each contract manufacturer may differentiate itself with certain special offerings, it is reasonable to expect a few key traits from any reputable electronic contract manufacturer.
Top 3 Trends in the Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) Industry
While the inherent economic benefits of outsourcing or offshore sourcing (in the case the manufacturing partner is located overseas, off-shore sourcing) may differ from company to company, it is no denying that manufacturing outsourcing has seen a steady uptrend over the past couple of decades. With clear benefits in terms of production efficiency, reduced overhead & labor costs, and faster new product introductions, to list a few, today OEMs continue to collaborate with EMS’s to develop their products.
