Cable Assemblies, Looms and Harnesses

Cable by name, cables by nature - which means that we know just about everything to do with wire cutting, stripping, tinning, crimping, terminating, marking, bunching, forming and routing.

We can produce one off samples or small production runs - within 24 hours if necessary - before building high volume bespoke and discreet cable assemblies, forms, looms and harnesses as well as patch and ribbon cables to your sample, peg board, CAD drawing, specification or instructions.

CableTronics’ services 

  • Wires prepared, cut, stripped, tinned, formed and bundled.
  • Complex assemblies, harnesses, wiring looms and cableforms manufactured.
  • Ribbon, IDC, co-axial and patch leads made to order.
  • Compliance testing for continuity, hi-pot, short circuit and cross over protection.
  • A choice of cable identification methods to military standards.
  • All cables can be manufactured from free issued or procured components and delivered on a JIT or scheduled method.

Having been established for over 10 years, we have a wide range of stock materials such as wire, cable, crimps, connectors and cable markers and an equally wide range of tooling for Amp, Molex, JST, Bulgin, Lemo, Harwin, Tyco and many other major brand terminals.

PCB Population, Calibration and Test

Printed circuit boards are an important part of CableTronics’ business - most electromechanical devices need a PCB and CableTronics has the ability and know how to populate:  

  • Conventional printed circuit boards
  • Surface mount - both single sided and double sided
  • Boards with both technologies
  • See right for a full list of our PCB services

Our expertise lies in the supply of prototype boards tailor made to clients’ specifications, along with the manufacture of low volume PTH and/or surface mount, single sided, double sided and multi-layer boards. Our standard turnaround on prototypes is 48 hours - and 5 to 10 working days on all other standard orders.

All boards are populated and tested on-site using state of the art manufacturing and testing equipment.

Automated PCB finishing

At CableTronics, we have our own vision aligned stencil printer, fast changeover fully automated SMT vision placement unit and a state of the art vapour phase oven. 

This means that we can place components down to 0402, PLCCs, BGAs and QFPs - and ensure either lead free or leaded boards are made to the latest standards and approvals.

PCB re-work

Using hot air soldering stations, vacuum and conventional hand soldering tools, we can populate, produce and re-work prototype and production boards - with follow on batch runs - of either mixed, through-hole or SMD only composition.

And, we can guarantee fast turn-around PCB population - without penalising you through high prices. Typically, boards are:  

  • Free issued - supplied by the customer
  • Boards we purchase from our PCB manufacturing partners in the UK and overseas
  • Modification, re-work or refurbishment of OEM boards

Sub-assembly and Prototype Build

Regardless of size, quantity or sophistication, we can build samples, prototypes and sub-assemblies from a sketch, model or CAD drawing.

We can also build assemblies incorporating electronic, mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic or optical items from customer supplied parts - or from components procured by us in the UK and overseas.

Where applicable, all anti-static and RoHS procedures are observed.

And we produce documentary records, including digital photographs, drawings and detail build and test procedures to ensure consistency and quality is maintained throughout the life of the product.

We also encourage our technicians to visit and interact with you, passing on engineering feedback to enhance your equipment and to help give your company a competitive edge.

Sub-assembly services include

  • Machining, component placement, soldering, wiring and terminating.
  • Potting, encapsulating and gluing.
  • Heat shrinking, screening and conformal coating.
  • Wire wrapping, plumbing and mechanical construction.
  • EPROM and FTGA programming.
  • Product labelling and component serialisation.
  • Early stage functionality testing.

Box Build - Product and System Construction

Electronic and mechanical box build

Full product manufacture and system assembly

We manufacture a wide range of products and systems, large and small, for demanding applications - including electronics, aerospace, military, telecommunications, medical, pharmaceutical and broadcasting.

Dedicated engineers, with in-depth knowledge of electronic and mechanical components and practices, will ensure full build compliance with your drawings, specifications and instructions to BS ISO 9001-2000 quality standards - whether in a fabricated or injection moulded case, a metal enclosure, rack, floor standing or bench top box.

All our engineers take great pride in their work and are trained to identify any technical or other issues prior to assembly to help ensure that deliveries are always on time - they also provide feedback direct to the customer, making our box build service second to none.

To ensure quality and consistency, we make full use of specialist equipment, a large stock of mechanical hardware and a wide selection of electrical components.

Specific areas of expertise

  • Cable assembly Typically part of our box build assembly activity, encompassing a wide variety of cable assembly techniques ranging from simple IDC cable assemblies through to integral wiring looms and custom harness. 
  • Light mechanical/electro-optical assembly Part of our box build assembly capability and often utilised in conjunction with our electronics manufacturing capability to produce a variety of electro-mechanical assemblies.
  • PCB manufacture Another in-house process that gives us total control of the manufacturing process from start to finish.

Particular attention is paid to

  • Planning, appearance and critical path routing.
  • Printed information, hinges and heat sources.
  • Seating, serviceability, support and stability.
  • Approach to termination points and termination lengths.
  • Trunking, grouping, crimping and fastening.
  • Accessibility to test points.

Panel and Cabinet Production

We can make up panels of any size or type - including those with sophisticated PLC controls, high voltage electrical distribution or straight forward relay/contactor components.

Typical uses for our panels and cabinets include distribution, power and control applications.

Coupled with our cable, PCB and procurement services, we have developed efficient panel building methods that give thought to ease of use, programming, field service and repair.

Meticulous attention is given to every production detail - exposed live components are always shrouded and each wire is carefully labelled to identify every connection.

If required, components and graphic symbols can be identified with colour coordinated labels or nameplates.

Panels and systems incorporating components such as PLCs, MCBs, RCBs, PCBs, displays, keyboards, membranes, meters, indicators, switches, timers, servo controls, transformers, chokes and power supplies can be built and programmed to your exact requirements.

We can also look after

  • Cabinet construction - hangers, locks, seals
  • Out sourcing of both machining and panel spraying
  • Manufacture of internal and external labels
  • Laser engraving
